smixlate - translate SMI/SPPI identifiers


smixlate [ -Vhm ] [ -c file ] [ -p module ] [ -l level ] module(s)


The smixlate program is used to translate identifiers and especially OIDs into a more human readable format.


Show the smixlate version and exit.
Show a help text and exit.
Report errors and warnings also for recursively imported modules.
Read file instead of any other (global and user) configuration file.
Preload the module module before reading the main module(s). This may be helpful if an incomplete main module misses to import some definitions.
Report errors and warnings up to the given severity level. See the smilint(1) manual page for a description of the error levels. The default error level is 3.
Replace all OIDs including OID prefixes. Without this option, smixlate will only translate OIDs with a corresponding notification, scalar, column, row, or table definition.
Preserve the input format as much as possible by inserting/removing white space characters.
These are the modules to be loaded for the subsequent translation. If a module argument represents a path name (identified by containing 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.


This example translates numeric OIDs in the input text into a more human readable format.

$ echo "what is this oid?" |  
./smixlate -l 0 /usr/local/share/mibs/ietf/*
