SNMP Association file directory

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I am talking about the .funcs files. Where should I place them in a
release? As per my knowledge the SNMP application (in my case SNMP Agent)
loads those files when loading the MIBs (compiled), correct? So, how can I
give the corresponding .funcs file for a certain MIB when loading?

In my .config file for the release I have below entries.

{snmp,
  [{agent,
    [
     ....,
     {db_dir, "/usr2/omni_oam/system/lib/omni_oam-2.0/priv/snmp/agent/db"},
     ....,
     {config, [{dir,
"/usr2/omni_oam/system/lib/omni_oam-2.0/priv/snmp/agent/conf"},{force_load,
true},{verbosity, silence}]},
     ....}]}]},

I have placed the compiled MIB files (.bin) in the directory specified by
db_dir parameter, but when I try to do snmpa:load_mibs/2 with just the name
of the MIB file, it doesn't work (error - noent). But if I give the full
path to the MIB file, it loads the file. But still I don't see it loading
the .funcs file, though I have the .funcs file in the same directory where
the .bin file is located.

Please help if you see any problem I do.

Thanks,
- Eranga

Association file? Do you mean the .funcs files?

db_dir is just a place for the snmp application to store internal data.
It does not care what else you put into that directory, as long as you
don't mess with the files created by the snmp application. But in
principle, I would leave that directory to the snmp application (and not
put my own stuff into it).

Most of this stuff is described in the documentation.
