A Management Information Base (MIB) is a collection of information that is organized hierarchically. MIBs are stored on a network agent for access by a network management station which uses a protocol such as SNMP. They are comprised of managed objects, (which are essentially variables), and identified by object IDs, which uniquely identify a managed object in the MIB hierarchy
The MIB hierarchy can be depicted as a tree with a nameless root, the levels of which are assigned by different organizations. The top-level MIB object IDs belong to different standards organizations, while lower-level object IDs are allocated by associated organizations. Vendors can define private branches that include managed objects for their own products.
RAD devices are managed via SNMP using both Standard and Private MIBs, which can be downloaded from the following pages:
• Standard MIBs
• RAD Private MIBs
• Device-Specific MIBs
To compile MIBs properly, follow the MIB Compilation Instructions.
