genddx generates the SNMP discovery instructions file, which may
be later used as input for the devdiscover utility to produce the
corresponding Torrus XML configuration file. The hostname(s) of router(s) to
be included in SNMP discovery must be specified either using the
--host (for a single router) or --hostfile option. In the latter
case the file HOSTFILENAME must contain a space-separated list of router
hostnames. Hostnames may have the form "host:devname" where "devname" is
a symbolic device name.
This utility is designed to be used only once, in order to generate
the discovery XML canvas, for futher manual editing. It generates only
basic set of parameters, and there are much more of those that you may
use to customize the discovery process.
More information is available in Torrus SNMP Discovery User Guide.
