Switch Interface

In this document we describe the functions that the switch library code needs to implement. The class structure for the switch is : Switch -> VendorSwitch -> ModelVendorSwitch . Following standard oo conventions functions are generically implemented in the Switch super class and more specifically implemented in the Vendor and Model sub-classes.

Environmental monitoring and other generic functions such as getName etc will be implemented in the hardware super class, more details to follow. def init(self, switchNode, macIDLength=None):

def setSwitchID(self, s): def getSwitchID(self): def setIPAddress(self, i): def getIPAddress(self): def setMACIDLength(self, i): def getMACIDLength(self): def setCommunity(self, c): def getCommunity(self): def setSNMPgetCommand(self, s): def getSNMPgetCommand(self): def setSNMPwalkCommand(self, s): def getSNMPwalkCommand(self): def setSNMPsetCommand(self, s): def getSNMPsetCommand(self): def getChassisTemperature(self): def getNumberPorts(self): def getSwitchName(self): def getSwitchDescription(self): def getSwitchUptime(self): def getSwitchContact(self): def getSwitchLocation(self): def getVLANToInterfacesTable(self): def getConnectedPortsTable(self): def getInterfaceDescriptionTable(self): def getLearnedAddresses(self): def getLearnedPorts(self): def getAddressesStatus(self): def getPortIDs(self): def getPortInternalID(self, portNumber): def getPortStatus(self, portNumber): def enablePort(self, portNumber): def disablePort(self, portNumber): def getFullMACTable(self): def getSNMPResultVLANTable(self, command): def getSNMPResultTable(self, command, idLength=1, format="normal"): def getSNMPResultID(self, command, idLength): def getSNMPResultValue(self, command): def parseSNMPResultID(self, snmpResult, idLength, format="normal"): def parseSNMPResultSpecificID(self, snmpResult, idNumber): def parseSNMPResultValue(self, result):

When developing support for a switch this is very useful.
