in reply to Net::SNMP vs SNMP, and MIBs

I've got the following comment in one of the programs I'm attempting to actively work on at the moment. The comment was made by me, but it was made too long ago to remember exactly why I said that...
use SNMP; #pretty much only used for Mib translations use Net::SNMP qw(snmp_dispatcher ticks_to_time);
Later I'm using the following methods from each package:
$sysUpTime = SNMP::translateObj('sysUpTime.0'); # Create a session for this host my ($session, $error) = Net::SNMP->session( -hostname => $box{ipadd}, -community => $community_string, -port => 161, -nonblocking => 0x1, # Create non-blocking object +s -translate => [ -timeticks => 0x0 # Turn off so sysUpTi +me is numeric ] ); if (!defined($session)) { $err++; logit $DBG, sprintf("ERROR: %s.\n", $error); return 0; }
So, from that, either I got what I wanted from each package and was to stuborn to try to learn if one or the other was enough, or they were complementary, and I couldn't do what I wanted from only one. My tuits are missing today or I'd have looked it up by now...
