SNMP::Info::AMAP is a subclass of SNMP::Info that provides an object oriented interface to Alcatel Mapping Adjacency Protocol (AMAP) information through SNMP.

AMAP is a Layer 2 protocol that allows a network device to advertise its identity and capabilities on the local network providing topology information.

Create or use a device subclass that inherits this class. Do not use directly.

Inherited Classes


Required MIBs



These are methods that return scalar values from SNMP
Is AMAP is active in this device?


These are methods that return tables of information in the form of a reference to a hash.
Returns the string value used to identify the remote system.
Returns the mapping to the SNMP Interface Table.
Returns remote IPv4 addresses. Note: AMAP returns all IP addresses associated with the remote device. It would be preferable to include only one address since they should all originate from the same device, but amap_ip() can not determine if all addresses are reachable from the network management application therefore all addresses are returned and the calling application must determine which address to use and if they are in fact from the same device.
Returns remote port ID
Returns remote platform ID
