SNMP::Info::IPv6 - SNMP Interface for obtaining IPv6 addresses and IPv6 address mappings
Jeroen van Ingen and Carlos Vicente
# Let SNMP::Info determine the correct subclass for you.
my $info = new SNMP::Info(
AutoSpecify => 1,
Debug => 1,
DestHost => 'myswitch',
Community => 'public',
Version => 2
or die "Can't connect to DestHost.\n";
my $class = $info->class();
print "SNMP::Info determined this device to fall under subclass : $class\n";
The SNMP::Info::IPv6 class implements functions to for mapping IPv6 addresses to MAC addresses, interfaces and more. It will use data from the IP-MIB, IPV6-MIB, or the CISCO-IETF-IP-MIB, whichever is supported by the device.
This class is inherited by Info::Layer3 to provide IPv6 node tracking across device classes.
For debugging purposes you can call this class directly as you would SNMP::Info
my $info = new SNMP::Info::IPv6 (...);
These are methods that return tables of information in the form of a reference to a hash.
Maps an IPv6 address to an interface ifIndex
Maps an IPv6 address to its type (unicast, anycast, etc.)
Maps an IPv6 prefix with its origin (manual, well-known, dhcp, etc.)
Maps IPv6 addresses with their prefixes
Maps IPv6 addresses with their prefix length
Maps a table instance to an IPv6 address
Maps an address of type cInetNetToMediaNetAddressType on interface ifIndex to a physical address.
Takes an octet stream (HEX-STRING) and returns a colon separated ASCII hex string.
To install SNMP::Info, copy and paste the appropriate command in to your terminal.
perl -MCPAN -e shell
