Description:
------------
In order to add an entry to many SNMP tables, you need to 
be able to set multiple OIDs (values) at the same time. The 
net-snmp "snmpset" command allows this, as do the 
libnetsnmp APIs, but the SNMP extension to PHP does not 
support this. 
 
I added a new function to ext/snmp.c to support setting 
multiple values at once, and I'd like to see it added to 
the PHP SNMP extension for all to use. 

Reproduce code:
---------------
Just try to set multiple SNMP OIDs (object IDs) with the current API, which is:

proto int snmp2_set(string host, string community, string object_id, string type, mixed value [, int timeout [, int retries]])

I added:

proto int snmp2_set_arr(string host, string community, array oids, array types, array values [, int timeout [, int retries]])

This way, no current programs break and new programs can use this functionality.

Expected result:
----------------
I'd like to be able to manage things like Marvell switches, 
which only allow adding a Table entry (e.g. for a new VLAN) 
if you can set multiple values (OIDs) at the same time. 

Actual result:
--------------
Right now I can't do this without hacking the PHP SNMP 
extension.

PHP's snmpset extension does not support setting multiple OIDs at once. Doing so from the command line using snmpset from Net-SNMP works fine.

I need to set multiple OIDs at once in order to manage switches

The above patch URL is no longer available. Does anybody still have the patch? I could put it on my web page until somebody adds it to the PHP upstream.

Hello :) 

I added my patch, it just contains a function, "snmp3_mset", which has the same prototype that snmp2_set_arr (function of eqguy2002).
For SNMP version 1 and 2 you can easily adapt source code by modifying the beginning of the function snmp3_mset.

For apply patch you need to copy patch file in root directory of all php sources, and type "patch -p0 < ext_snmp.patch" (in Unix).

Don't hesitate to mail me for any question.

Saimoun.

Sorry, my patch did not work.
I add a new version, and this version works perfectly, I have made many tests on it.
