Cisco Bridge-Domain MIB

Cisco Bridge-Domain MIB

Last Updated: December 16, 2012

This document describes the attributes and tables of the CISCO-BRIDGE-DOMAIN-MIB, the supported operations, and related CLI commands.

A bridge domain is a means for defining an Ethernet broadcast domain on a bridging device and an alternative to 802.1D bridge groups and to 802.1Q VLAN bridging. Members of a bridge domain learn addresses and participate in Spanning-Tree Protocol (STP) and operations, administration, and maintenance (OAM) protocols. The purpose of a bridge domain MIB is to provide a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) network management interface for a configured bridge domain. A bridge domain MIB also helps network management personnel learn the details of various broadcast domains configured in a network.

Prerequisites for the Cisco Bridge-Domain MIB

SNMP contexts must be configured before you can poll the CISCO-BRIDGE-DOMAIN-MIB.

Restrictions for the Cisco Bridge-Domain MIB

  • The CISCO-BRIDGE-DOMAIN-MIB does not support notifications in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(50)SY.
  • Customer bridge domains (C-MACs) are not supported in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(50)SY.

Information About the Cisco Bridge-Domain MIB

The CISCO-BRIDGE-DOMAIN-MIB is delivered as an SNMP MIB and follows the general MIB architecture for the Cisco IOS software. The CISCO-BRIDGE-DOMAIN-MIB contains objects to manage multiple instances of SNMP context support for bridge domains and can be used to learn the details of various broadcast domains configured in the network.

CISCO-BRIDGE-DOMAIN-MIB Objects

The CISCO-BRIDGE-DOMAIN-MIB has one attribute object and one table object. Bridge domain attributes are managed using the SNMP context-aware infrastructure. Every configured bridge domain is related to an SNMP context so if you know the context, you can obtain the attributes.

CISCO-BRIDGE-DOMAIN-MIB Attributes

The cbdMembersConfigured attribute is the only attribute defined. This attribute denotes the number of members configured on a bridge domain, and the variable used to populate the attribute is called "numb_of_bd_members."

The cbdMembersConfigured attribute is read-only (Get operations are allowed). Set operations are not supported because bridge domain attributes are related to current bridge domain configurations on the system.

CISCO-BRIDGE-DOMAIN-MIB Tables

The cbdMemberInfo table is the only table defined. This table contains the bridge-domain attributes that correspond to the members configured for each bridge domain. Each row in the table is a unique entry for each interface that belongs to a specific bridge domain and a specific service.

All the objects in the cbdMemberInfoTable table are read-only. Set operations are not supported in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(50)SY. This table is indexed by ifIndex and cbdSIIndex.

The following table describes each object.

Table 1 Objects in the Table cbdMemberInfoTable

Object

Description

Variable to Populate Object or Object Value

cbdMemberAdminState

Administrative state of the bridge domain member.

bd_pp_admin_state_t

cbdMembercMac

Indicates if the bridge domain member is configured as a C-MAC.

If a C-MAC is configured on one or more members of the bridge domain, the value is 1; otherwise, the value is 0.

Note    In Cisco IOS Release 12.2(50)SY, the value is always zero because C-MAC is not supported in the release.

cbdMemberOperState

Operational state of the bridge domain member.

bd_pp_oper_state_t

cbdMemberSplitHorizon

Indicates if split horizon is configured.

If split horizon is configured, this object has a value of 1; otherwise the value is 0.

cbdMemberSplitHorizonNum

Number of the split horizon group the member belongs to.

bdomain_port_is_sh_member

cbdMemberStatus

Enables the SNMP agent to create, modify, and delete rows in the cbdMemberInfoTable.

The only value allowed is "active," which is equal to 1.

cbdMemberStorageType

Specifies the storage type of this row and can have only a value of "nonVolatile." Other values are not applicable and are not supported.

The only value allowed is "nonVolatile," which is equal to 3.

cbdMemberType

Type of bridge domain member.

  • Ethernet service instance
  • ATM VC
  • FR VC

bd_pp_type_t

cbdSIIndex

Member index that identifies the service instance to which the bridge domain is attached. Denotes the service instance number for Ethernet service instance cbdSIIndex.

Efp_id for Ethernet service instance

How to Configure a Bridge Domain and a Related SNMP Context

Perform this task to configure a bridge domain and a related SNMP context, which the CISCO-BRIDGE-DOMAIN-MIB can be used to manage.

SUMMARY STEPS

1.    enable

2.    configure terminal

3.    bridge-domain bridge-id

4.    snmp context context-name

5.    end


DETAILED STEPS
  Command or Action Purpose
Step 1
enable


Example:

Router> enable

 

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

  • Enter your password if prompted.
 
Step 2
configure terminal


Example:

Router# configure terminal

 

Enters global configuration mode.

 
Step 3
bridge-domain bridge-id


Example:

Router(config)# bridge-domain 5

 

Configures components on bridge domain 5 and enters the bridge domain configuration mode.

 
Step 4
snmp context context-name


Example:

Router(config-bdomain)# snmp context bd5

 

Creates an SNMP context for bridge domain 5.

 
Step 5
end


Example:

Router(config-bdomain)# end

 

Exits bridge domain configuration mode and returs to privleged EXEC mode.

 

Configuration Examples for the Cisco Bridge-Domain MIB

Example: Bridge Domain and SNMP Context Configurations

The following example shows how two bridge domains and their corresponding SNMP contexts are configured.

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# bridge-domain 2
Router(config-bdomain)# snmp context bd2
Router(config-bdomain)# bridge-domain 3
Router(config-bdomain)# snmp context bd3
Router(config-bdomain)# end

Example: Verifying Context Configurations

Contexts must be configured before you can poll the CISCO-BRIDGE-DOMAIN-MIB. The following sample output of the show snmp context mapping command shows that an SNMP context is configured for each of two bridge domains. This output reflects the configuration in the previous example, "Bridge Domain and SNMP Context Configurations."

Router# show snmp context mapping
Context: bd2
  VRF Name: 
  BD Index: 2
Context: bd3
  VRF Name: 
  BD Index: 3
