We have a value in our MIB for notifying when an specific call started:

Object                     ctpcStartDateAndTime

"This object specifies the value of local date and time when a call is started.

http://tools.cisco.com/Support/SNMP/do/BrowseOID.do?local=en&translate=Translate&typeName=DateAndTime

This Object has variable type as "DateAndTime".  DateAndTime is a standard Textual Convention   which is defined in the  SNMPv2-TC. DateAndTime is resolved to base data   type OCTET STRING. The  DISPLAY-HINT format for DataAndTime is given as   follows.


DISPLAY-HINT "2d-1d-1d,1d:1d:1d.1d,1a1d:1d"



The date-time specification is as follows.




"A date-time specification.

field  octets  contents                  range
-----  ------  --------                  -----
1      1-2   year                      0..65536
2       3    month                     1..12
3       4    day                       1..31
4       5    hour                      0..23
5       6    minutes                   0..59
6       7    seconds                   0..60
(use 60 for leap-second)
7       8    deci-seconds              0..9
8       9    direction from UTC        '+' / '-'
9      10    hours from UTC            0..11
10      11    minutes from UTC          0..59

For example, Tuesday May 26, 1992 at 1:30:15 PM EDT would be
displayed as:

1992-5-26,13:30:15.0,-4:0

Note that if only local time is known, then timezone information (fields 8-10) is not present."


Valid Usage


SnmpVar snmpvar = syntax.CreateVariable("'07:D2:09:03:0C:14:20:03:2B:07:00'");//hex   format, length 11 bytes
SnmpVar snmpvar = syntax.CreateVariable("'07:D2:09:03:0C:14:20:03'");//hex   format, length 8 bytes
SnmpVar snmpvar = syntax.CreateVariable("2002-9-21,13:53:32.3,-7:0");//string   format, length 11 bytes
SnmpVar snmpvar = syntax.CreateVariable("2002-9-21,13:53:32.3");//string   format, length 8 byte


Example:



07 DA 08 09 0E 13 31 00 
 
07DA = 2010
08   = August
09   = 9th
0E   = 14
13   = 13 minutes
31   = 31 seconds
00   = deciseconds



The value of year is in network-byte   order.
