          Accept [switch.]<module>/<port> format for ports, so that we can
      	deal with ports not in the database (mostly for my own
      	debugging sanity.)
          A -n option that prevents assign from changing hardware settings
          	(though, unlike TESTMODE, does read some information from
      	the switches)
          Private VLAN support, through the -x,-y, and -z switches. There
      	are only 5 letters of the alphabet left, so I've given up on
      	memnonic switches.
          Worked a bit on making VLAN deletion more efficient, but with
          	little sucess
      Private VLANs work like so:
      Make a primary private VLAN with:
      snmpit -m myvlan-primary -y primary
      Attach a community VLAN to it like so:
      snmpit -m myvlan-community -y community -x myvlan-primary -z cisco2.1/15
      Put some ports into the community VLAN:
      snmpit -m myvlan-community pc1:0 pc2:0

      Made some functions that previously took only a single port or VLAN · 13381879

      take more than one. This can increase efficiency, since, for example,
      we now only have to lock the VLAN edit buffer once when tearing down
      an experiment, instead of once per VLAN. There are still other
      functions (setVlanOnTrunks comes to mind) that could benefit from this
      These optimization have been made only for Ciscos - minimal changes
      necessary to keep Intel support working were made, but they will still
      have the same old slow behavior.

      Code for picking which VLANs are allowed to go across which trunks. · 11e0ea5f
      Robert Ricci authored
      As much of it as possible switch-independant, and put in snmpit_lib.
      Should work for arbitrarily complicated switch toplogies, as long as
      there are not multiple trunks between two switches. (Multiple ports
      combined into one trunk are fine, however.)
      As a result of this, VLAN creations and deletions now need to operate
      on all switches, not just on the ones that have ports in the VLAN.
      This is because the traffic may have to traverse switches that have no
      ports in the VLAN to reach other switches that do.
      Not called yet. I've done simple testing, but need to do more, as this
      could get us into major trouble if it has bugs.

      New option: -c . Clears all VLANs are re-creates them from the · cee6ab9c

      database.  Intended to be used to recover switch state after a
      crash or power outage.
      This option is farily dangerous, as it temporarily disrupts all
      experimental traffic, and will remove all hand-created VLANs.
      So, it interactively asks for confirmation that the user (who
      must be an admin, of course) really wants to do this.

      Some minor API changes to increase effieciency for Intels. · 9bd1dded
      Robert Ricci authored
      First, the stack-level createVlan() function no longer takes as an
      argument a list of devices the VLAN exists on, since it looks like
      this will never be needed.
      In it's place, createVlan() now takes a list of ports, so that it can
      (if so desired) put the ports in the VLAN without a seperate lock and
      The snmpit_intel module now uses its 'nested locking' feature to avoid
      additional locking in these cases. Note though, that the way that this
      is done is not safe for multiple switches in a stack. If we ever have
      to support multiple Intels (looks doubtful), this will have to be
      removed, or locking will need to be moved a level up to
      snmpit_intel_stack . Yuck.
      For Intels, the removeVlan() function calls removePortsFromVlan()
      itself, again to save locking overhead. The Cisco behavior, however,
      is unchanged, as locking is not expensive, and this would be too

      multiple operations. For example, you can now remove multiple VLANs with
      one command, like:
      snmpit -o foo -o bar
      You can now give more than one -i option, so that you can give a list of
      more than one switch to operate on, like:
      snmpit -i cisco3 -i cisco4 -l
      Converted from using Getopt::Std to Getopt::Long, which is more flexible and
      better documented.
      All the 'worker' ( do*() ) functions now take a list of stacks as the first
      argument, rather than using a global @stacks variable.
      Fixed up the usage message, which was out of date in some cases, and
      innacurate in others.

      Make sure experiments actually exist, for morons like me that enter 'eid pid'

      When using '-t', don't try to create VLANs if they already exist, just

      state or fix up after manually monkeying with VLANs)

      Major overhaul of snmpit. Highlights, in no particular order: · 7e53c10a
      Robert Ricci authored
      Now supports multiple switches and multiple stacks. To do this, the existing
      snmpit_cisco module had to be modified to behave as a true object, and its
      interface changed.
      A new layer of abstraction has been added: the stack. This is to hide the
      details of how things such as VLAN creation occur across multiple devices. For
      example, in Cisco stacks, you always contact the stack leader (VTP server) to
      create/delete VLANs. Other switches may have different semantics, such as
      having to contact every switch to create the VLAN.
      Now uses libdb for database access and permissions checks.
      Hardware details are hidden as much as possible in the user interface. For
      example, the creation and deletion commands now take VLAN identifiers, and
      snmpit transparently turns these into device-specific VLAN numbers.
      snmpit.in has been re-written from scratch. The new version uses three basic
      1) Process command line options and determine operation to run
      2) Determine which devices, ports, and VLANs will be involved and make
         the appropriate objects
      3) Actually perform the operation
         when TESTMODE is set, does only steps 1 and 2
      Some command-line options have changed. This is because we now use getopt,
      rather than a home-grown parser, to parse the command line. As a result of the
      large number of options, and an attempt to mimic old options as much as
      possible, the options are no longer very mnemonic.
      Uses a new table called switch_stacks to figure out which switches belong to
      which stacks. A stack is defined as a set of switches that share VLANs.
      All snmpit scripts and modules now run with 'use strict' to help catch certain
      programming errors.
      VLAN listing now prints out the pid/eid and vname for VLANs, if possible.
      A few things have bitrotted due to these changes:
      * snmpit_intel will need to be re-tooled to use the new interface, and to
        behave as a proper object
      * vlansync, vlandiff, and resetvlans depend on the output of snmpit, and will
        need to be updated to understand its new output format

      VLANs it is to operate on. This is only a temporary multi-switch solution, as
      it only picks one switch to operate on.
      Also, added a sanity check in snmpit_cisco.pm. Now checks every port that
      it controls, to make sure it's on the right switch. If this sanity check
      fails, dies to prevent any damage to existing switch configuration.
