mtu - POLYCENTER Common Agent MIB Translator Utility
/usr/sbin/mtu [-ccode] [-i] [-l] file.mib [file.mib]...
Specify the EMA entity code to be assigned to the root entity.
-i Produce an informational parameter file for input to the POLYCENTER
Common Agent momgen utility (file.par).
-l Produce a listing file containing the MIB information from the file.mib
file and a summary of the mapping to EMA hierarchical structures in the
The mtu utility translates MIB specification files (.mib) into EMA Manage-
ment Specification files (.ms). The management specifications can be
loaded into the POLYCENTER Common Agent Management Information Repository
(MIR) by the /usr/sbin/mirc utility.
The MIB structure and syntax is described by Concise MIB Definitions (RFC-
1212). The EMA Management Specification Language is described by the
DECmcc System Reference Manual.
If the Common Agent Developer's Toolkit layered product is installed, the
mtu utility can also produce momgen information files (file.par) from the
1. The following example translates the superbox.mib MIB file into the
MSL file superbox.msl (named by derivation), specifying 1000 as the
EMA root entity. An information parameter superbox.par is created
that can be use with the momgen utility.
# mtu -c 1000 -i superbox.mib
2. The following example translates all of the MIB files in the current
working directory into MSL files. For each MIB file, mtu produces the
MSL file (.msl), a listing file (.lis), and a momgen informational
parameter file (.par).
# mtu -i -l *.mib
3. The following example translates the tinybox.mib MIB file into the MSL
file tinybox.msl, specifying 500 as the EMA root entity. A momgen
informational parameter file (tinybox.par) is also generated. The
smallbox.mib MIB file is translated into the MSL file smallbox.msl,
specifying 1000 as the EMA root entity. A momgen informational parame-
ter file (smallbox.par) is also generated.
# mtu -c 500 -i tinybox.mib -c 1000 -i smallbox.mib
A listing file that contains a numbered version of the MIB input file
followed by a hierarchical management specification summary. If errors
are encountered, this file contains the diagnostic at the line where
the error occurred.
MIB input file.
MSL output file.
The momgen informational parameter file. It contains class, parent,
and prefix information used by the momgen utility when generating a
Managed Object Module.
