POE::Component::NetSNMP::agent - AgentX clients with NetSNMP::agent and POE


This module is a thin wrapper around NetSNMP::agent to use it within a POE-based program, its basic use being the same as you would do without POE: register one or more OIDs with their associated callbacks.

POE::Component::NetSNMP::agent also provides a simpler mechanism, similar to SNMP::Extension::PassPersist, if you just want to handle get and getnext requests over an OID tree: set the Autohandle option to the a OID, then add OID entries with add_oid_entry or add_oid_tree.

Note that most of the API is available both as POE events and as object methods.

This module can use Sort::Key::OID when it is available, for sorting OIDs faster than with the internal pure Perl function.


To install this module, run the following commands:

perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install

Alternatively, to install with Module::Build, you can use the following commands:

perl Build.PL
./Build test
./Build install
