The MIB Browser tool is a complete 'SNMP MIB Browser' that enables loading and browsing of MIBs, and performing all SNMP-related operations. You can also view and operate on the data available, through the SNMP agent, running on a managed device.
The features of MIB Browser are as follows:
Saving the MIB Browser settings.
Loading and viewing MIB modules in a MIB tree.
Traversing the MIB tree, to view the definitions of each node for a particular object, defined in the MIB.
Performing basic SNMP operations, such as GET, GETNEXT, GETBULK, and SET.
Support for multi-varbind requests. This feature is available only in the Java client.
Real-time plotting of SNMP data in a graph. Line graph and Bar graph are the two types of graphs that are currently supported. This feature is available only in the Java client.
Table-view of SNMP data. This feature is available only in the Java client.
Enables loading of MIBs at startup. This feature is available only in the Java client.
Follow the below steps in order to upload the MIB:
Navigate to 'Admin -> Networks -> Mib Browser'. Click the button.
Note: Please ensure that the MIBs corresponding to the new device are always present under '<It360 home installation directory>\ManageEngine\IT360\networks\mibs'.
Select the uploaded MIB from the 'Select MIB' filter.
Now, the selected MIB and the related attributes (MIB Nodes) are displayed in the MIB Tree, as shown below:
The MIB Tree shows all the loaded MIBs. You can traverse the tree and view the definition of each node in the tree, in the corresponding fields, such as 'Object ID', 'Syntax', 'MIB Node Description', etc.
- Click 'Expand All' or 'Collapse All', to respectively view or minimize all the attributes/nodes under the selected MIB.
If you want to retrieve the OID of a particular attribute, just click on the attribute. The OID corresponding to that attribute is displayed in the 'Object ID' field.
The below steps help you in getting value for a particular OID. For example, let us consider the sysObjectID:
Navigate to 'Admin -> Networks -> Mib Browser'.
Enter the appropriate value in the 'Community' field.
Hit the button. The sysObjectID value is generated as shown below:
