NodeDescription Property

Textual description of the selected node.

Object Oriented Interface

public function getNodeDescription();

Procedural Interface

ipworkssnmp_mibbrowser_get($res, 3 );

Default Value



Because loading descriptions can consume unwanted resources, the class can control caching of descriptions in order to keep the memory footprint of the class as small as possible.

To disable caching, set the CacheDescriptions config setting to True. In this case, the class will only save the offset of the description in the MIB file in memory, and will fetch the textual description directly from the file only when required. When using caching, make sure that the path of the loaded modules does not change or the property will be unable to fetch the correct text description.

This property is read-only.
