Changes required to attached C source code.
Braa utility generates concurrent SNMPGET or SNMPWALK to multiple hosts.
This utility can take arguments from the file as below
# braa -f source_file
Source file for the program contain following lines
- public_t3st is SNMP RO Community string
- 192.168.1.1 destination IP Address
- .220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.1.10.3 - OIDs - IfInOctets
: (semicolon) sign is used as a delimiter to separate OID from the rest of the line, so two parts of the line are
in part 1 @ sign is used as a delimiter to separate SNMP RO Community string and IP Address into
which works fine when there are no @ signs present in SNMP RO String
# braa -f [url removed, login to view]
Problem: in following SNMP RO community string contains character @ sign is used as one of the characters, as below
SNMP RO String: t@aketh@t
so the whole line constructed for braa to use should look like below
braa processes 1st part of the string, which is
it uses first @ in the string as a delimiter, so two parts become
1. my_r - SNMP RO String
2. aketh@firstname.lastname@example.org as IP Address
this is wrong.
Here is what we see when we try to run braa with SNMP RO String which contains @ sign
Content of the file
# cat [url removed, login to view]
]# braa -f [url removed, login to view]
Unable to process queries: Invalid IP address: 'aketh@email@example.com'. (file [url removed, login to view])
The change is required to the source code so that only the LAST @ sign is used to separate SNMP RO String and IP Address, so proper parts will be as below
1. my_t@aketh@t - SNMP RO String
2. 192.168.1.1 - IP Address
Source code is attached
to compile this utility under Linux just run
tar xvf [url removed, login to view]
the resulting file is called braa, which is the actual executable.
