NAME

       SNMP::Info::Layer2::Baystack - SNMP Interface to Avaya Ethernet Switch (Baystack) and VSP
       7000 series switches

SYNOPSIS

        # Let SNMP::Info determine the correct subclass for you.
        my $baystack = new SNMP::Info(
                                 AutoSpecify => 1,
                                 Debug       => 1,
                                 DestHost    => 'myswitch',
                                 Community   => 'public',
                                 Version     => 2
                               )
         or die "Can't connect to DestHost.\n";

        my $class = $baystack->class();
        print "SNMP::Info determined this device to fall under subclass : $class\n";

DESCRIPTION

       Provides abstraction to the configuration information obtainable from an Avaya Ethernet
       Switch (formerly Nortel/Bay Baystack) and VSP 7000 series through SNMP.

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

       my $baystack = new SNMP::Info::Layer2::Baystack(...);

GLOBALS

       These are methods that return scalar value from SNMP

       $baystack->vendor()
           Returns 'avaya'

       $baystack->model()
           Cross references $baystack->id() to the SYNOPTICS-MIB and returns the results.  303s
           and 304s have the same ID, so we have a hack to return depending on which it is.

           Returns BPS for Business Policy Switch

           For others extracts and returns the switch numeric designation.

       $baystack->os()
           Returns 'baystack' or 'boss' depending on software version.

       $baystack->os_bin()
           Returns the firmware version extracted from "sysDescr".

       $baystack->stp_ver()
           Returns the particular STP version running on this device.

           Values: "nortelStpg", "pvst", "rstp", "mstp", "ieee8021d"

           ("s5AgSysSpanningTreeOperMode")

   Overrides
       $baystack->index_factor()
           Required by SNMP::Info::SONMP.  Number representing the number of ports reserved per
           slot within the device MIB.

           Index factor on the Baystack switches are determined by the formula: Index Factor = 64
           if (model = 470 or (os eq 'boss' and operating in pure mode)) or else Index factor =
           32.

           Returns either 32 or 64 based upon the formula.

TABLE METHODS

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

   Overrides
       $baystack->interfaces()
           Returns reference to the map between IID and physical Port.

             Slot and port numbers on the Baystack switches are determined by the
             formula:

             port = (Interface index % Index factor)
             slot = (int(Interface index / Index factor)) + Slot offset

             The physical port name is returned as slot.port.

       $baystack->i_ignore()
           Returns reference to hash of IIDs to ignore.

       $baystack->i_mac()
           Returns the "ifPhysAddress" table entries.

           Removes all entries matching '00:00:00:00:00:00' -- Certain revisions of Baystack
           firmware report all zeros for each port mac.

       $baystack->i_name()
           Crosses "ifName" with "ifAlias" and returns the human set port name if exists.

       $baystack->peth_port_ifindex()
           Maps the "pethPsePortTable" to "ifIndex" by way of the ENTITY-MIB.

       $baystack->peth_port_power()
           Power supplied by PoE ports, in milliwatts

           ("bspePethPsePortExtMeasuredPower")

   ENTITY-MIB Information
       For older devices which do not support ENTITY-MIB, these methods emulate Physical Table
       methods using S5-CHASSIS-MIB.  See "TABLE METHODS" in SNMP::Info::NortelStack for details
       on ns_e_* methods.

       $baystack->e_index()
           If the device doesn't support "entPhysicalDescr", this will try ns_e_index().  Note
           that this is based on "entPhysicalDescr" due to implementation details of
           SNMP::Info::Entity::e_index().

       $baystack->e_class()
           If the device doesn't support "entPhysicalClass", this will try ns_e_class().

       $baystack->e_descr()
           If the device doesn't support "entPhysicalDescr", this will try ns_e_descr().

       $baystack->e_name()
           If the device doesn't support "entPhysicalName", this will try ns_e_name().

       $baystack->e_fwver()
           If the device doesn't support "entPhysicalFirmwareRev", this will try ns_e_fwver().

       $baystack->e_hwver()
           If the device doesn't support "entPhysicalHardwareRev", this will try ns_e_hwver().

       $baystack->e_parent()
           If the device doesn't support "entPhysicalContainedIn", this will try ns_e_parent().

       $baystack->e_pos()
           If the device doesn't support "entPhysicalParentRelPos", this will try ns_e_pos().

       $baystack->e_serial()
           If the device doesn't support "entPhysicalSerialNum", this will try ns_e_serial().

       $baystack->e_swver()
           If the device doesn't support "entPhysicalSoftwareRev", this will try ns_e_swver().

       $baystack->e_type()
           If the device doesn't support "entPhysicalVendorType", this will try ns_e_type().

       $baystack->e_vendor()
           If the device doesn't support "entPhysicalMfgName", this will try ns_e_vendor().

   Layer 2 Forwarding Database
       These methods try to obtain the layer 2 forwarding database entries via the normal bridge
       methods as well as SPBM entries via rapid city methods.

       $baystack->fw_mac()
           Returns reference to hash of forwarding table MAC Addresses

       $baystack->fw_port()
           Returns reference to hash of forwarding table entries port interface identifier (iid)

       $baystack->qb_fw_vlan()
           Returns reference to hash of forwarding table entries VLAN ID

       $baystack->fw_status()
           Returns reference to hash of forwarding table entries status
