RCDP - CLI based network mapping/discovery
The rcdp utility provides network device discovery and hierachical,
character based mapping suitable for use in a CLI based environment. Currently
it supports only Cisco devices via SNMP, but future version will include
multivendor and multiprotocol support (Telnet/SSH).
Besides mapping rcdp is usefull for pushing config changes out to a large number
of devices vis SNMP, or tracking down IP/MAC addresses , or gathering
information about your network deives such as chassis serial numbers
(modues not supported yet), OS versions numbers, and hardware models.
RCDP requires perl, Net::SNMP, Net::Telnet, and Net::SSH modules.
RCDP is installed using the distribution file. After unpacking the
file, perform the following steps while in the top level directory of the distribution:
a. Create a makefile by decompressing and then running Perl against Makefile.PL and
then run make. If on windows you may need to install stawberry/activestate perl
use make/dmake for the install and possibly use cpan for Net::SNMP module install:
tar -xzf rcdp.tar.gz
configure rcdp.conf (see man page or rcdp.conf example file)
mv rcdp.conf /etc ?
Documentation is included as part of the RCDP module in
Plain Old Documentation (POD) format.
