    Own Id: OTP-17615 Aux Id: MR9501-1

  • Improve debug info for (snmp) manager.

    Own Id: OTP-17783

  • Sockets are monitored, but the handling of the 'DOWN' message expected a new style socket ('socket'), old style (port) was not handled.

    Own Id: OTP-17641 Aux Id: OTP-17640

  • It is now possible to configure the built-in net-if processes (both agent and manager) to use the new (gen_udp-) option 'inet_backend'.

    Own Id: OTP-17526

  • Commit of generated configure script.

    Own Id: OTP-17420 Aux Id: OTP-17398, GH-4821

  • Removed deprecated functions marked for removal.

    Own Id: OTP-17049

  • Removed timestamps from files generated by snmp to enable deterministic builds.

    Own Id: OTP-17354

  • Fixed warnings in code matching on underscore prefixed variables.

    Own Id: OTP-17385 Aux Id: OTP-17123

  • Commit of generated configure script.

    Own Id: OTP-17420 Aux Id: OTP-17398, GH-4821

  • Add function to get a list of configured agent transports. Also improved agent info with regards to transports.

    Own Id: OTP-17109 Aux Id: ERIERL-583

  • [manager] In a function handling snmp errors, an unused result (_Error) could result in matching issues and therefore case clause runtime errors (crash). Note that this would only happen in *very* unusual error cases.

    Own Id: OTP-17161

  • [manager] Misspelled priv protocol (atom) made it impossible to update usm user 'priv_key' configuration for usmAesCfb128Protocol via function calls.

    Own Id: OTP-17110 Aux Id: ERIERL-586

  • Fixed usage of AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIRS() macros in configure script sources.

    Own Id: OTP-17093 Aux Id: ERL-1447, PR-2948

  • If an attempt was made to send a v1 trap on a IPv6 transport this could cause a master agent crash (if the agent was *not* multi-threaded).

    Own Id: OTP-16920 Aux Id: OTP-16649

  • The deprecation info for a couple of the deprecated MIB compiler functions where incorrect. Referred to functions in the 'snmpa' module instead of 'snmpc'.

    Own Id: OTP-17056 Aux Id: OTP-17049

  • Make it possible for the agent to configure separate transports (sockets) for request-responder and trap-sender.

    Own Id: OTP-16649

  • The mib server cache handling has been improved. First, the default gclimit has been changed from 100 to infinity (to ensure the size is as small as possible). Also, the method of removing old elements has been optimized.

    Own Id: OTP-16989 Aux Id: ERIERL-544

  • It is now possible to configure the agent in such a way that the order of outgoing notifications are processed in order in the agent. What happens after the notification message has left the agent (been sent) is of course still out of our control.

    Own Id: OTP-17022 Aux Id: ERIERL-492

  • Improve handling of the udp_error message. Basically an improved error/warning message.

    Own Id: OTP-17033

  • For agent fix PrivParams for SNMPv3 USM with AES privacy, as earlier fixed for the manager in OTP_16541.

    Own Id: OTP-15130 Aux Id: ERIERL-524, OTP-16541

  • The SNMP Agent missed to re-activate datagram reception in an odd timeout case and went deaf. This bug has been fixed.

    Own Id: OTP-15767 Aux Id: ERIERL-523

  • Use of deprecated functions in example 2 has been removed (no more compiler warnings).

    Own Id: OTP-16716

  • A file descriptor leak has been plugged. When calling the reconfigure function of a mib, it opened the config file(s) but never closed them on successful read.

    Own Id: OTP-16760 Aux Id: ERIERL-511

  • For manager, fix PrivParams for SNMPv3 USM with AES privacy; * In `snmp_usm:do_decrypt/3`, pass full UsmSecParams to `snmp_usm:try_decrypt/5` as expected by AES clause. * Change `snmpm_usm:aes_encrypt/3` to use EngineBoots and EngineTime as cached by `snmpm_config:get_usm_eboots/1` and `snmpm_config:get_usm_etime/1` instead of `snmpm_config:get_engine_boots/0` and `snmpm_config:get_engine_time/0`. This ensures correct msgPrivacyParameters are sent when AES is used. * Add test `snmp.snmp_manager_SUITE.usm_priv_aes/1` to avoid regression.

    Own Id: OTP-16541 Aux Id: #2544

  • Invalid character in (manager) usm config entry generator function.

    Own Id: OTP-16552 Aux Id: ERL-1196

  • Remove usage and documentation of old requests of the I/O-protocol.

    Own Id: OTP-15695

  • Calls of deprecated functions in the Old Crypto API are replaced by calls of their substitutions.

    Own Id: OTP-16346

  • Finalize deprecation. Already deprecated functions has a "remove version 24" set and "new" functions added to list of deprecated functions.

    Own Id: OTP-16463

  • Refactored the internal handling of deprecated and removed functions.

    Own Id: OTP-16469

  • Commit of generated configure script.

    Own Id: OTP-17420 Aux Id: OTP-17398, GH-4821

    Own Id: OTP-15130 Aux Id: ERIERL-524, OTP-16541

  • The SNMP Agent missed to re-activate datagram reception in an odd timeout case and went deaf. This bug has been fixed.

    Own Id: OTP-15767 Aux Id: ERIERL-523

  • A file descriptor leak has been plugged. When calling the reconfigure function of a mib, it opened the config file(s) but never closed them on successful read.

    Own Id: OTP-16760 Aux Id: ERIERL-511

  • A simple supervision of the snmp manager net-if process has been added. Also, a way to forcibly restart the net-if process has been added. This could be useful if the net-if process hangs for some reason.

    Own Id: OTP-16447 Aux Id: ERIERL-455, OTP-16382

  • Misc documentation corrections

    Own Id: OTP-16450

  • Its now possible to remove selected varbinds (from the final message) when sending a notification. This is done by setting the 'value' (in the varbind(s) of the varbinds list) to '?NOTIFICATION_IGNORE_VB_VALUE'.

    Own Id: OTP-16349 Aux Id: ERIERL-444

  • Its now possible to specify that an oid shall be "truncated" (trailing ".0" to be removed) when sending an notification.

    Own Id: OTP-16360 Aux Id: ERIERL-451

  • [manager] The callbacks where executed in a (new) 'temporary' process, that executed the callback call and then exited. This has now been made configurable so that is also possible to specify a 'permanent' callback proxy process. All callback calls will then be executed in this (permanent) process (in sequence).

    Own Id: OTP-15947 Aux Id: ERIERL-378

  • Its now possible to remove selected varbinds (from the final message) when sending a notification. This is done by setting the 'value' (in the varbind(s) of the varbinds list) to '?NOTIFICATION_IGNORE_VB_VALUE'.

    Own Id: OTP-16349 Aux Id: ERIERL-444

  • Its now possible to specify that an oid shall be "truncated" (trailing ".0" to be removed) when sending an notification.

    Own Id: OTP-16360 Aux Id: ERIERL-451

  • Agent discovery cleanup. If there is no receiver of INFORM then #state.reqs in snmpa_net_if keeps on growing for DISCOVERY.

    Own Id: OTP-16228 Aux Id: ERIERL-427

  • The agent discovery process has been made to work with snmptrapd..

    Own Id: OTP-16207 Aux Id: ERIERL-427

  • Made it possible to add 'extra socket options' to the (gen_udp) socket open call (for both manager and agent). A new option has been added, extra_sock_opts, which makes it possible for the user to add a list of extra socket options that will be appended to the other socket options for the open call. See the snmp application config man page (erl -man 6 snmp) or the "Configuring the application" chapter of the Users Guide for more info.

    Own Id: OTP-16092 Aux Id: ERIERL-410

  • Fix various minor issues related to Dialyzer. Mostly these are dialyzer warnings, but there was also some minor bugs detected by Dialyzer.

    Own Id: OTP-15932

  • Fixed a dets usage problem detected by dialyzer.

    Own Id: OTP-10400 Aux Id: kunagi-253 [164]

  • The function snmp:print_version_info() prints various version info. For each module a number of items are printed, such as app vsn and md5 digest. And an attempt was also made to print "compile time". This used to be available in the module_info for each module, but has now been removed.

    Own Id: OTP-15330

  • The use of the deprecated random module has been replaced the with rand module.

    Own Id: OTP-15331

  • Removed use of the deprecated function erlang:get_stacktrace(). Instead make use of the 'catch Class:Error:Stacktrace' feature.

    Own Id: OTP-15332

  • The application otp_mibs has been removed from OTP. Some of its components (mibs) have been moved to other apps (snmp), or removed completely (os_mon).

    Own Id: OTP-14984 Aux Id: OTP-15329

  • [snmp|agent] Add a get-mechanism callback module (and a corresponding behaviour). The agent calls this module to handle each get (get, get-next and get-bulk) request.

    Own Id: OTP-15691 Aux Id: ERIERL-324

  • Conversion of (agent) Audit Trail Log (ATL) failed due to invalid log entries.

    The conversion aborted completely midway because the ATL contained invalid entries. The conversion has been improved so that it now firstly handles encountered errors and write an informative message (into the converted stream) and secondly keeps count of the number of successful or failed entry conversions. See log_to_txt for more info.

    The reason the ATL contained invalid entries have also been fixed. The reason was that for some outgoing messages (not response):

    • encrypted (v3 messages)

      Was logged "as is" (encrypted) without the info to decrypt, making conversion impossible (which was the reason the log contained bad entries).

    • un-encrypted

      Was not logged at all.

    Own Id: OTP-15287 Aux Id: ERIERL-206

  • [compiler] Spurious version message removed. The snmp mib compiler printed an spurious version message if the 'version' option was provided.

    Own Id: OTP-15290

  • [manager] The callbacks where executed in a (new) 'temporary' process, that executed the callback call and then exited. This has now been made configurable so that is also possible to specify a 'permanent' callback proxy process. All callback calls will then be executed in this (permanent) process (in sequence).

    Own Id: OTP-15947 Aux Id: ERIERL-378

  • [snmp|agent] Add a get-mechanism callback module (and a corresponding behaviour). The agent calls this module to handle each get (get, get-next and get-bulk) request.

    Own Id: OTP-15691 Aux Id: ERIERL-324

  • The Snmp MIB compiler now allows using a TEXTUAL-CONVENTION type before defining it.

    Own Id: OTP-14196 Aux Id: ERIERL-161

  • The example MIB EX1-MIB in the SNMP application has been corrected to match its example.

    Own Id: OTP-14204 Aux Id: PR-1726

  • Removed all old unused files in the documentation.

    Own Id: OTP-14475 Aux Id: ERL-409, PR-1493

  • The recbuf configuration option was not propagated correctly to the socket for the SNMP Manager.

    Own Id: OTP-13372 Aux Id: ERIERL-73

  • A bug in the SNMP MIB compiler has been fixed. An AUGMENTS referring to a table defined later in the MIB did not work.

    Own Id: OTP-13014 Aux Id: ERL-375

  • Internal code change: Calls to catch followed by a call to erlang:get_stacktrace/0 has been rewritten to use try instead of catch to make the code future-proof.

    Own Id: OTP-14400

  • The SNMP MIB compiler has been fixed to compile MIBS with refinements on user types such as in RFC 4669 RADIUS-AUTH-SERVER-MIB.mib. Problem reported and researched by Kenneth Lakin and Daniel Goertzen.

    See also: https://bugs.erlang.org/browse/ERL-325

    Own Id: OTP-14145 Aux Id: ERL-325

  • Correct bugs when path to mib or idl spec files contains UTF-8 characters.

    Own Id: OTP-13718 Aux Id: ERL-179

  • Solves snmp config string handling as reported by ERL-164 and solved by PR-1100

    Own Id: OTP-13706

  • Internal changes

    Own Id: OTP-13551

  • Snmp agent now properly handles vacmViewTreeFamily masks.

    Own Id: OTP-13264

  • Small documentation fixes

    Own Id: OTP-13017

  • Update configuration check of imask ( list of ones and zeros) to allow the empty list.

    Own Id: OTP-13101

  • The runtime dependencies in the application resource file have been updated.

    Own Id: OTP-12762

  • A bug in the SNMP Agent has been corrected; when opening a port using the command line argument -snmpa_fd the Port should be 0 when calling gen_udp:open.

    A bug in the SNMP manager has been corrected; it should not look at the -snmp_fd command line argument, but instead at -snmpm_fd.

    Own Id: OTP-12669 Aux Id: seq12841

  • Improved cryptographic capability.

    Own Id: OTP-12452

Version 5.1.1 supports code replacement in runtime from/to version 5.1.

  • [compiler] Refinement of type Opaque was not allowed.

    MIB constructs such as 'SYNTAX Opaque (SIZE(0..65535))' was previously not allowed, see the standard ALARM-MIB for eaxmple.

  • The SNMP manager has been enhanced with dual stack IPv4+IPv6, as the agent just was. The documentation is also now updated for both the agent and the manager.

    Own Id: OTP-12108 Aux Id: OTP-12020

  • SNMP has been improved to handle IPv6. The agent can handle dual stack IPv4 + IPv6, but not yet the manager. The documentation also still lags behind... If you do such advanced stuff like writing a custom net_if module, the interface for it has changed, but other than that SNMP is backwards compatible.

    *** POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY ***

    Own Id: OTP-12020 Aux Id: OTP-11518

  • Application upgrade (appup) files are corrected for the following applications:

    asn1, common_test, compiler, crypto, debugger, dialyzer, edoc, eldap, erl_docgen, et, eunit, gs, hipe, inets, observer, odbc, os_mon, otp_mibs, parsetools, percept, public_key, reltool, runtime_tools, ssh, syntax_tools, test_server, tools, typer, webtool, wx, xmerl

    A new test utility for testing appup files is added to test_server. This is now used by most applications in OTP.

Version 4.25.0.1 supports code replacement in runtime from/to version 4.25, 4.24.2, 4.24.1 and 4.24.

  • Updated doc files to utf8.

    Own Id: OTP-10907

  • Fixed test suite to support UTF-8 paths.

Version 4.25 supports code replacement in runtime from/to version 4.24.2, 4.24.1, 4.24, 4.23.1 and 4.23.

  • [agent] Enable SNMP to create missing database directories.

    Add {db_init_error, create_db_and_dir} option to SNMP manager and agent. This allows them to create any missing parent directories for db_dir, rather than treating any missing directories as a fatal error. The default for db_init_error, which is terminate, is unchanged.

    Own Id: OTP-11352

  • [manager] Improved handling of unexpected return values from snmpm_user callback functions.

    Violations of the documented API (crashes or invalid return values) will now result in an error message.

    Own Id: OTP-11307

  • Add (atl) log conversion block option.

    It is now possible to request that the Audit Trail Log should be blocked during conversion (log_to_txt or log_to_io). This could be useful when converting an entire large log (when there is a chance it may otherwise wrap during conversion).

    See agent log_to_txt and log_to_io and also manager log_to_txt and log_to_io for details.

    Own Id: OTP-11396

    Own Id: seq12433

  • When converting an Audit Trail Log to text, a corrupt log entry could cause the entire conversion to fail.

    Also, for a log with sequence numbers, failing to decode a log entry would cause the conversion to fail (not because of the failed decode, but because of the failure to write the error message).

    Own Id: OTP-111453

    Aux Id: Seq 12459

  • Wrong block cypher type used for AES ('aes_cbf128' instead of 'aes_cfb128') when performing AES block encrypt/decrypt which breaks SNMP usmAesCfb128Protocol in agent and manager.

    Own Id: OTP-11412

  • [manager] When performing the AES encryption, invalid values for the EngineBoots and EngineTime was used.

    The values of the local agent was used, which would have produced "some" values if an agent was actually running. If not it would have caused a crash.

    Own Id: OTP-11413

Version 4.24.2 supports code replacement in runtime from/to version 4.24.1, 4.24, 4.23.1 and 4.23.

  • [agent] Improved documentation for the functions for loading and unloading mibs, see load_mibs and unload_mibs for more info.

    Also added new functions for loading and unloading a single mib, see load_mib and unload_mib for more info.

    Own Id: OTP-11216

  • [agent] Reading the value of the vacmViewTreeFamilyMask returns it in the wrong (internal bitlist) format.

    The vacmViewTreeFamilyMask is defined as a bit string in the MIB (OCTET STRING). Internally a bitlist (list of 1's and 0's, see vacm config file for more info) is used. However, the MIB implementation assumed the latter, effectively rendering all attempts to read/set masks via SNMP unsuccessful.

    Since the mask is used in hot paths (e.g. access permission checks for each SNMP operation, the bitlist representation of the mask has benefits (e.g. faster processing). Reading/writing the view mask objects is less time-critical. Therefore, to fix the issue, convert between the bitlist (internal) representation and bitstring (external) when the vacmViewTreeFamilyMask objects are accessed.

    Also, the check of the vacm config file was invalid with regard to the mask value. It was assumed to be a proper oid, which is not strictly the case (see bitlist above).

  • [agent] The counter increment function in the local-db was incorrect. It did not handle counter wrap correctly.

    Own Id: OTP-11192

Version 4.24 supports code replacement in runtime from/to version 4.23.1 and 4.23.

  • [agent,manager] Updated to support the new crypto interface.

    Own Id: OTP-11009

  • [agent] Introduced a documented behaviour for the mib-server mib-data backend. At present only the default module (snmpa_mib_data_tttn) is provided.

    A config option for the (agent) mib-servers mib-data backend module has been added to the agent config options, data_module.

    Own Id: OTP-11101

  • [agent] Introduced a documented behaviour for the mib storage. At present there are three simple modules (snmpa_mib_storage_ets, snmpa_mib_storage_dets and snmpa_mib_storage_mnesia) implementing this behaviour, provided with the app.

    A config option for the (agent) mib storage has been added to the agent config options.

Version 4.22.1 supports code replacement in runtime from/to version 4.22, 4.21.7 4.21.6 4.21.5, 4.21.4, 4.21.3, 4.21.2, 4.21.1 and 4.21.

  • [agent] Semantic fixes to SNMP-USER-BASED-SM-MIB. The semantics allow the usmUserAuthKeyChange and usmUserPrivKeyChange objects to be written to in the same set requests that also creates and clones the user. This was not possible beforehand, causing test tools checking semantic SNMPv3 behaviour to fail on a lot of test cases.

    Furthermore, once the user has been cloned by writing to an instance of usmUserCloneFrom, further set-operations to the same object will not return an error, but be no-ops. Especially, it must be avoided to copy security parameters again (possibly even from a different user).

    Own Id: OTP-10166

  • [agent] Errors in vacmAccessTable RowStatus handling. There are problems with the handling of vacmAccessTableStatus that cause some SNMP test suites to report errors. Most notably, erroneous set operations frequently cause "genErr" errors to be returned. These "genErr" errors are usually caused by badmatch exceptions coming from {ok, Row} = snmpa_vacm:get_row(RowIndex) if the row does not exist.

    The semantics of the RowStatus handling in that table has been adjusted to be compliant with the RowStatus textual description of SNPMv2-TC MIB.

  • [agent] Fix walk over vacmAccessTable. Fix the get_next implementation of vacmAccessTable to return all table entries.

    The get_next implementation of vacmAccessTable did not return all available table data. Instead, it only returned the first column for each row, and all columns for the last row available.

    Own Id: OTP-9969

  • Added the log_to_io audit-trail-log converter function to the api modules of both the manager and agent.

    Own Id: OTP-9940

  • [agent] Repeated vacm table dumping fails due to file name conflict. When dumping the vacm table to disk, a temoporary file with a fixed name was used. If the table dumping (snmpa_vacm:dump_table/0) was initiated from several different processes in rapid succession, the dumping could fail because the different processes was simultaneously trying to write to the same file. This problem has been eliminated by creating a unique name for the temporary file.

  • [agent] When sending an error message (reply) regarding snmpUnknownPDUHandlers, the agent used the wrong OID.

  • [compiler] Fix the --warnings/--W option parsing in the snmpc wrapper (e)script. The short warning option was incorrectly --w, instead of as documented --W. This has now been corrected.

    *** POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY ***

Version 4.21.1 supports code replacement in runtime from/to version 4.20.1, 4.20 and 4.19.

  • [compiler] Used wrong variable name (for warnings-as-errors variable), which caused the compiler to crash when using the snmpc (e)script.

    Also added the option --Werror for the SNMP MIB compiler (escript) frontend (to mimic erlc), which specifies whether warnings should be treated as errors.

  • [agent] Some very minor debugging improvements.

Version 4.21 supports code replacement in runtime from/to version 4.20.1, 4.20 and 4.19.

  • [manager] There was no way to specify transport domain. The transport domains was assumed to be IPv4 (transportDomainUdpIpv4). This has now been changed so that it can also be IPv6 (transportDomainUdpIpv6). To facilitate this, the transport domain, tdomain, is now a (new) valid option when registering a new agent (and updating agent info).

    This also mean that the transport behaviour has changed.

  • [compiler] Added the option warnings_as_errors (for the SNMP MIB compiler (escript) frontend, the option --wae is used) which specifies whether warnings should be treated as errors.

Version 4.20 supports code replacement in runtime from/to version 4.19 and 4.18.

  • [agent] Added support for sending traps to IPv6 targets.

    See the target address config file, the target_addr_entry/11 function or add_addr/11 for more info.

  • [manager] The API for snmp requests has been augmented to allow the caller to override some configuration.

    This has been done by introducing a new set of API functions, see sync_get2/3,4, async_get2/3,4, sync_get_next2/3,4, async_get_next2/3,4, sync_get_bulk2/5,6, async_get_bulk2/5,6, sync_set2/3,4 and async_set2/3,4 for more info.

  • [agent] Pass extra info through the agent to the net-if process when sending notifications.

    See snmpa:send_notification2/3 for more info. See also the incoming net-if messages when sending a trap (send_pdu message) and notification (send_pdu_req message).

  • Fixed endode/decode of values of type Counter32.

    This type (Counter32) is an unsigned integer 32, but is actually encoded as an signed integer 32. The encode/decode functions however, treated it as if it was encodeded as an unsigned integer 32.
