I try to findout the number of devices which are connected to a switch using SNMP query. As per my understanding, the dot1dTpFdbTable of Bridge MIB have the details of the devices which are reachable through the particular port ( MacAddress --> Port relationship). It means that the devices which are connected to the switch with the particular port.
If a desktop/server is connected to a port of the switch, the dot1dTpFdbTable contains the port --> macaddress of the device i.e only one entry.
For example, Swicth A is connected to a Swicth B with port as 10. In this case, Swicth B's dot1dTpFdbTable contains all the devices which are present in the switch A.
port 10 --> macaddress1 (devices which are connected to switchA)
port 10 --> macaddress2
port 10 --> macaddress3
port 10 --> macaddress4
port 10 --> macaddress5
port 10 --> macaddress6
I have another doubt, if Swicth C is connected to Switch A. Whether SwicthB dot1dTpFdbTable which will contains all the device's mac address which are connected to switch C ?
What will happen if swicth is connected by a hub or unmanaged switch?
