MIB Smithy 4.7.2 and MIB Smithy SDK 4.6.5 Released

August 27th, 2014 by Michael Kirkham

MIB Smithy 4.7.2 and MIB Smithy SDK 4.6.5 are now available for download. These releases include the following changes/fixes:

6601: Return id for wait/cancel when sending traps with delay [SDK]

The [$session trap] command will now return a unique ID, as is done with async requests, allowing the [$session wait] command to be used to wait (specifically) for the trap to be sent when transmission is delayed.

6602: Send messages immediately if no delay/window wait required [SDK]

Based on user feedback, the behavior introduced in SDK 4.6.4 whereby trap and async request APIs always return immediately (before transmission) has been changed to only return before transmission if the it would be delayed. The messaging APIs will service the Tcl event queue prior to returning, until the message is sent -OR- no more immediately serviceable events remain in the queue.

This restores prior API behavior when -delay and -window options are not in use, while preserving the intended fixes for CPU load and handling such delays asynchronously.

6600: Can’t specify SNMPv3 priv password for snmptrapd CLI tool/script

When the snmptrapd CLI tool/sample script was enhanced to allow specifying SNMPv3 auth/priv parameters, the options added were consistent with the other CLI tools/scripts. Unfortunately the -p option was already in use for specifying listener port, resulting in an error when trying to specify privacy protocol.

The option for specifying listener port has been changed from -p to -b to resolve the conflict. Additionally, -B can be used to specify listener address/interface (normally it will listen on all interfaces), and -s to disable use of straps/nmtrapd on Unix.

6620: sysUpTime not included in trap varbinds with Tnm interface

When using the Tnm compatibility interface to send SNMPv2c/v3 traps, sysUpTime was not being included in the sent trap’s varbinds.
