NAME

smicache - caching method for use with libsmi

CONTENTS

Synopsis
Description
Options

SYNOPSIS

smicache [ -Vh ] [ -d dir ] [ -p prefix ] [ mib ]

DESCRIPTION

The smicache program can be used by libsmi to fetch MIB modules that cannot be found in regular local MIB directories.

OPTIONS

-V Show the smicache version and exit.
-h Show a help text and exit.
-d dir
  Write fetched module file(s) to directory dir.
-p prefix
  Use the URL prefix prefix for fetching modules.
mib The MIB module to be fetched.
Note that smicache is just a very simple script that builds on the wget program to retrieve files from URLs. It does not handle the file attributes of retrieved modules in any special way, so that you have to care about permissions in multi-user environments.

EXAMPLE

Smicache can be used by putting the following line into the global configuration file:

cache /usr/local/share/mibs/cache \ /usr/local/bin/smicache \ -d /usr/local/share/mibs/cache \ -p http://www.ibr.cs.tu-bs.de/projects/libsmi/smicache/

You might want to chmod 1777 /usr/local/share/mibs/cache.
