LoriotPro has extended the LUA sripting language by providing its own LUA libraries. The new functions provided are dedicated to the creation of monitoring and SNMP automation application.


'buffer',value = lp.ascii_SetSnmpui64('ip','oid',vlanid);


The LUA function lp.ascii_SetSnmpui64 perfoms a SNMP SET on a single objet ID on the selected IP address on the selected VLAN ID.

This function is designed for handling only SNMP V2 unsigned 64 bits object. This LUA language doesn't support by default this type of value this is why Loriotpro provides a set of function that manipulates this type of value by the mean of character string.

Warning ! The IP address should be present in the LoriotPro Directory and the SNMP object should be accessible in Read/Write. The Community should as well be set correctly on both sides, in the Host configuration in Loriotpro and in the SNMP agent on the device.


ip - The adresse IP as a character string

Warning ! This adress should exist in the Loriotpro directory

"oid" - The oid of the snmp object to modify followed by its index, the variable type (two letters from the following list) and the value to set

Warning ! the oid should exist in the MIB tree (MIB compiled) is the short name is used instead of the numerical value
