NAME

       fence_ifmib - Fence agent for IF MIB

DESCRIPTION

       fence_ifmib is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with any SNMP IF-MIB capable device.

       It  was  written  with  managed  ethernet  switches  in  mind, in order to fence iSCSI SAN
       connections. However, there are many devices that support the IF-MIB interface. The  agent
       uses IF-MIB::ifAdminStatus to control the state of an interface.

       fence_ifmib  accepts  options  on  the  command  line  as well as from stdin. Fenced sends
       parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_ifmib can be run  by  itself  with
       command  line  options.  This is useful for testing and for turning outlets on or off from
       scripts.
