snmp_bridge(3) BSD Library Functions Manual snmp_bridge(3)NAMEsnmp_bridge — bridge module for snmpd.
(begemotSnmpdModulePath."bridge" = /usr/lib/snmp_bridge.so)
The snmp_bridge module implements the BRIDGE-MIB as standardized in RFC
4188, the RSTP-MIB standardized in RFC4318 and a private BEGEMOT-BRIDGE-
MIB, which allows management of multiple bridge interfaces. Most of the
objects defined in the private BEGEMOT-BRIDGE-MIB are duplicates of the
original objects defined by the standard BRIDGE-MIB, but the private MIB
also defines additional objects which make the functionality of
snmp_bridge similar to ifconfig(8) for configuring bridge interfaces.
Therefore one should consider adding write comminities or loading the
snmp_bridge module on systems where security is crucial.
The additional objects to configure a bridge are:
Bridge interfaces can be created and destroyed via this
object. SNMP SET operations with the following values are
createAndWait will attempt to create a bridge interface with
the name given by the table index.
createAndGo will attempt to create a bridge interface with
the name given by the table index and set the
status of the interface to "active/up".
destroy will attempt to destroy the bridge interface.
A SNMP SET operation on this object is only successfull if the
corresponding port has not been added as member of the bridge
interface on the system.
SNMP SET operations with the following values are allowed:
createAndWait will create a new row for the bridge member in
the SNMP begemotBridgeBasePortTable but will
not try to commit the information to the sys‐
active will attempt to commit the information to the
system and will be successful only if a value
for begemotBridgeBaseSpanEnabled has been SET
destroy will attempt to remove the interface from the
system bridge interface.
This object controls a bridge interface flag called PRIVATE
where any private port can not communicate with another pri‐
Not all information in the MIBs is currently available in FreeBSD. The
