rnms_info is a tool to query the database on various models that RoseNMS contains. These queries are meant to assist administrators in troubleshooting, for example working out what Host a particular Attribute belongs to.

For example, to look at attribute #2, you would use the following commands:

$ rnms_info attribute 2

Attribute           | 2: Async5 (index: 5)
Host                 | 5: Cisco1700
State (admin/oper)   | down/down
Attribute Type       | 4: Physical Interfaces
Poller Set           | 42: SNMP Interface (enabled:True)
Poll Priority        | False
SLA                  | 1: No SLA
Created              | 2012-03-11 10:34:58
Next SLA             | 2013-09-30 12:26:29.878441
Next Poll            | 2013-10-07 14:58:20.189101
IP Address           |
IP Mask              |
Peer Address         |
Speed                | 38000

Each type of query will display detailed information about the requested object. There can also be cross references, so to see information about the above attributes host, you would query host 5.
