SNMP::Info::Layer2::Aruba(3) SNMP Interface to Aruba wireless switches

SNMP::Info::Layer2::Aruba is a subclass of SNMP::Info that provides an interface to Aruba wireless switches. The Aruba platform utilizes intelligent wireless switches which control thin access points. The thin access points themselves are unable to be polled for end station information.

This class emulates bridge functionality for the wireless switch. This enables end station MAC addresses collection and correlation to the thin access point the end station is using for communication.

For speed or debugging purposes you can call the subclass directly, but not after determining a more specific class using the method above.

 my $aruba = new SNMP::Info::Layer2::Aruba(...);

Inherited Classes


Required MIBs


Inherited MIBs

See ``Required MIBs'' in SNMP::Info::Layer2 for its MIB requirements.


These are methods that return scalar value from SNMP
Returns model type. Cross references $aruba->id() with product IDs in the Aruba MIB.
Returns 'aruba'
Returns 'airos'
Returns the software version extracted from "sysDescr"


Returns 00000011. Class emulates Layer 2 functionality for Thin APs through proprietary MIBs.

Globals imported from SNMP::Info::Layer2

See ``GLOBALS'' in SNMP::Info::Layer2 for details.


These are methods that return tables of information in the form of a reference to a hash.


Returns reference to map of IIDs to Interface index.

Extends "ifIndex" to support thin APs as device interfaces.

Returns reference to map of IIDs to ports. Thin APs are implemented as device interfaces. The thin AP BSSID is used as the port identifier.
Interface name. Returns ("ifName") for Ethernet interfaces and ("wlanAPFQLN" or "apLocation") for thin AP interfaces.
Interface MAC address. Returns interface MAC address for Ethernet interfaces and BSSID for thin AP interfaces.
Simulates bridge MIB by returning reference to a hash containing the index for both the keys and values.
("staAccessPointBSSID") as extracted from the IID.
("staPhyAddress") as extracted from the IID.
Returns reference to hash. SSID's recognized by the radio interface.


Returns reference to hash. Indicates whether the SSID is broadcast, true or false.


Returns reference to hash. Current operating frequency channel of the radio interface.


Returns aruba_perap_fqln indexed by BSSID instead of by AP.
