Net-SNMP MIB Helper
Bulk To Next
Documentation: doxygen API
Code: agent/helpers/bulk_to_next.c
Other Helpers: Agent Helpers

The bulk to next helper converts GETBULK requests into GETNEXT requests and handles repeatedly calling the lower level handlers with multiple GETNEXT requests to fulfill all the data needed. HANDLER_CAN_GETBULK Since it is common for low level MIB code to not worry about GETBULKs, this handler is inserted by default unless the HANDLER_CAN_GETBULK flag has been passed to netsnmp_create_handler_registration() or a similar function.
