SNMP support


I am the author of NetHorus, a Network Management System written in
Ruby, using
Rails, and originally written in PHP/perl.

There are several limitations in Ruby’s SNMP support, most notably in
parsing. For anything but simple single-OID GETs, this is is a
problem. MIB files contain, amongst other things:

  • Structure information about table constructs
  • Syntax information for returned OIDs (units, enumerations etc.)
  • Descriptions of OIDs

Is anyone working on enriching the SNMP support to include MIB
possibly using the existing libsnmp from Net-SNMP?
