       smidump - dump SMI or SPPI modules in various formats

       smidump [ -Vhqusmk ] [ -c file ] [ -o name ] [ -p module ] [ -l level ] [ -f format ] module(s)

       The  smidump  program  is used to dump the contents of a single MIB or PIB module or a collection of modules to
       stdout in a selectable output format.  This format may be a simple tree of nodes, types  or  imported  modules,
       but  also  a  format  fully compliant to SMIv1, SMIv2, SPPI or SMIng or CORBA IDL or C source code. Smidump can
       thus be used to convert modules from SMIv2 to SMIng and from SMIng to SMIv2, or to develop template based agent

       -V, --version
              Show the smidump version and exit.

       -h, --help
              Show a help text and exit. The help text contains a list of all supported output formats.

       -c file, --config=file
              Read file instead of any other (global and user) configuration file.

       -f format, --format=format
              Use  format when dumping a module. Supported output formats are described below. The default output for-
              mat is SMIng. The format argument is case insensitive.

       -l level, --level=level
              Report errors and warnings up to the given severity level. See the smilint(1) manual page for a descrip-
              tion of the error levels. The default error level is 3.

       -s, --severity
              Show the error severity in brackets before error messages.

       -m, --error-names
              Show the error names in braces before error messages.

       -o name, --output=name
              Write  the output in one or multiple files instead of stdout. The file name(s) are derived from the name
              argument.  Not all format support this option.

       -p module, --preload=module
              Preload the module module before reading the main module(s). This may be helpful if an  incomplete  main
              module misses to import some definitions.

       -q, --quiet
              Suppress  comments  from  dumped modules. What kind of information gets suppressed depends on the output

       -u, --unified
              Dump a unified output in case of multiple module(s) instead of multiple  concatenated  output  sections.
              This is not supported for all output formats.

       -k, --keep-going
              Continue  as  much  as possible after serious parse errors. Note that the output generated after serious
              parse errors may be incomplete and should be used with care.

              These are the module(s) to be dumped. If a module argument represents a path name  (identified  by  con-
              taining  at  least one dot or slash character), this is assumed to be the exact file to read. Otherwise,
              if a module is identified by its plain module name, it is searched according to libsmi  internal  rules.
              See smi_config(3) for more details.

       The smidump program supports the following output formats:

       sming       SMIng compliant format as defined in the SMIng Internet-Draft.

       smiv2       SMIv2 compliant format as defined in RFC 2578, RFC 2579, RFC 2580.

       smiv1       SMIv2 compliant format as defined in RFC 1155, RFC 1212, RFC 1215.

       sppi        SPPI  compliant format as defined in RFC 3159. If the underlying module is not SPPI, there might be
                   some mandatory information missing.

       mosy        Format generated by the mosy compiler.

       imports     Import hierarchy of a module.

       types       Types defined in a module.

       tree        OID registration tree structure of a module.

       metrics     Metrics derived from a module (experimental).

       identifiers List of identifiers defined in a module.

       compliances Compliance definitions with all included objects and notifications.

       corba       CORBA IDL and OID definitions following the JIDM specification translation rules.

       netsnmp     C source code files for usage within the net-snmp package (experimental).

       scli        ANSI C manager stubs for usage within the scli package (experimental).

       cm          Reverse engineered conceptual model in DIA XML file format (experimental).

       svg         SVG diagram of a module (experimental). Use with -u when dumping multiple modules.

       jax         Java AgentX sub-agent classes in separate files (experimental).

       perl        Perl represention of the MIB module (contributed by Martin Schulz <>).

       python      Python dictionaries represention of the MIB module (contributed by Pat Knight <>).

       xml         SMI in XML format (experimental).

       xsd         SMI in XML schema format (experimental).

       sizes       SNMP  best  case / worst case RFC 3416 PDU sizes for typical PDUs excluding SNMP message and trans-
                   port headers (experimental).

       This example converts the SMIv2 module IF-MIB in the current directory to IF-MIB.sming in  SMIng  format.  Note
       that  the  ./  prefix is used to ensure reading the module from the current directory and not from a place that
       libsmi guesses on its own.

         $ smidump -f sming ./IF-MIB > IF-MIB.sming
