Description

The purpose of the default storage is three-fold:

1)
To create a global storage space without creating a whole bunch of globally accessible variables or a whole bunch of access functions to work with more privately restricted variables.
2)
To provide a single location where the thread locking needs to be implemented. At the time of this writing, however, thread locking is not yet in place.
3)
To reduce the number of cross dependencies between code pieces that may or may not be linked together in the long run. This provides for a single location in which configuration data, for example, can be stored for a separate section of code that may not be linked in to the application in question.

The functions defined here implement these goals.

Currently, three data types are supported: booleans, integers, and strings. Each of these data types have separate storage spaces. In addition, the storage space for each data type is divided further by the application level. Currently, there are two storage spaces. The first is reserved for the SNMP library itself. The second is intended for use in applications and is not modified or checked by the library, and, therefore, this is the space usable by you.

You can think of these storage spaces as being 3 arrays, something like bool_storage[storeid][which], int_storage[storeid][which], and string_storage[storeid][which]. The data is then accessed through the functions defined below. For data you wish to store, you should use a store parameter of NETSNMP_DS_APPLICATION_ID.

The storage space used by the library (for which the store parameter is NETSNMP_DS_LIBRARY_ID) is defined in the default_store.h file, which currently contains the following defines:

Functions

int netsnmp_ds_set_boolean(int store, int which, int val);
Stores TRUE if val != 0 or else FALSE into the bool_storage[store][which] slot. Returns SNMPERR_GENERR if the store and which parameters do not correspond to a valid slot, or SNMPERR_SUCCESS otherwise.
int netsnmp_ds_get_boolean(int store, int which);
Returns 1 if bool_storage[store][which] is TRUE or 0 if not. May also return SNMPERR_GENERR if the store and which parameters do not correspond to a valid slot.
int netsnmp_ds_set_string(int store, int which, const char *val);
Stores val into the string_storage[store][which] slot. Returns SNMPERR_SUCCESS normally, or SNMPERR_GENERR if the store and which parameters do not correspond to a valid slot.
char *netsnmp_ds_get_string(int store, int which);
Returns the string which has been stored in the string_storage[store][which] slot, or NULL if the store and which parameters do not correspond to a valid slot.
netsnmp_ds_set_int(int store, int which, int val);
Stores val into the int_storage[store][which] slot. Returns SNMPERR_GENERR if the store and which parameters do not correspond to a valid slot, or SNMPERR_SUCCESS otherwise.
int netsnmp_ds_get_int(int store, int which);
Returns the integer which has been stored in the int_storage[store][which] slot, or SNMPERR_GENERR if the store and which parameters do not correspond to a valid slot.
void netsnmp_ds_shutdown(void);
Reclaims memory used to hold information gathered by netsnmp_ds_register_config and netsnmp_ds_register_premib.
int netsnmp_ds_register_config(u_char type, const char *ftype, const char *token, int store, int which);

Registers a configuration file directive token and attaches it to a default storage type and slot. Specifically, store and which indicate the storage slot in the data type indicated by type, where type is one of the following constants: ASN_BOOLEAN, ASN_INTEGER, or ASN_OCTET_STR. The ftype variable indicates the file name base string searched for the token keyword. For example, the following call:

netsnmp_ds_register_config(ASN_INTEGER, "snmp", "testtoken", DS_APPLICATION_ID, 5)

would indicate that when the snmp.conf file(s) were found and parsed, that any line beginning with the word "testtoken" should be read and the value after "testtoken" should be stored into the int_storage[DS_APPLICATION_ID][5] slot. For example the following line in the configuration file:

testtoken 502

would set int_storage[DS_APPLICATION_ID][5] = 502. This function returns SNMPERR_SUCCESS if the registration was made successfully, or SNMPERR_GENERR if the registration was not made (perhaps because the store and which parameters do not correspond to a valid slot, or because of a memory allocation failure).

int netsnmp_ds_register_premib(u_char type, const char *ftype, const char *token, int store, int which);
Analogous to the preceding function, but the token is processed before MIBs are read (this is therefore useful for controlling MIB processing options).
