Subject: Method to change the contextName
Download (untitled) / with headers

Because "The contextName stays with the object until it is changed." it would be nice to have a method to do so without having to do a "fake" read query. I heavily re-use handle in my project ( and caught a nasty bug in SNMPv3 with contextName (which few vendor even require making it nastier to catch). I think a method similar to what ->translate() does would be cleaner. For now I'll poke directly ->{_context_name} but I would prefer if it would be supported directly in Net::SNMP. Thanks,

This request will be addressed when there are enough changes to the Net::SNMP module to warrant a new release.
