mosy - The managed object syntax compiler.
/usr/sbin/mosy [-o output_file] [-s] [-i] [-1] input_file
The mosy program reads a description of an SNMP-managed objects module (extracted from a MIB) and produces a simple ASCII file containing equivalent definitions. The output file is used by various management applications. In particular, mosy output files are used as input to the snmpi program when developing extensible SNMP subagents for Tru64 UNIX .
If not given, the output file is derived from the input file name by replacing the suffix .my with .defs or appending .defs. If the input_file is not specified (or is specified as a hyphen (-) for standard input), output goes to standard output.
For a complete description of using mosy and developing subagents refer to the Network Programmer's Guide .
The input_file is a text file in MIB format describing a set of managed objects. This file is typically obtained by cleaning up an RFC file that defines a MIB. (You can use the /usr/examples/esnmp/mib_converter.sh script to perform this task.) If you do not specify an input_file or specify a hyphen (-), the program accepts input from standard input.
The output_file specifies the file to create for mosy output. You can also use a hyphen "-" to specify the output file name, which means output to standard out. If not given, the output file is derived from the input file name by replacing the suffix .my with defs or appending .defs. If the input_file is not specified (or is specified as a hyphen (-) for standard input) output goes to standard out.
Creates the specified output file. The default behavior is to derive the output file name from the input file name. Indicates silent mode which turns off the default behavior of printing out objects names, type names, and identifiers. Specifies that errors are ignored. This option causes the mosy program to create an output file even if it encounters errors. The default behavior is that the mosy program generates no output file when errors are encountered. Specifies that the mosy program will perform only the first validation pass when compiling. The mosy program prints the input_file contents as it parses, which is useful when debugging syntax errors.
Compile the file toaster.my with the output going to the file toaster.defs. # mosy toaster Clean up the MIB defined in RFC1514.txt and compile it, placing the output in file fred.objects # /usr/examples/esnmp/mib_converter < rfc1514.txt > rfc1514.my # mosy rfc1514 -o fred.objects
Commands: /usr/sbin/mib_converter.sh, snmpi(8), snmpd(8), snmp_request(8)
