Management Information Base (MIB)

Table of contents
No headers

Management Information Base (MIB) is a structure that describes all objects a device can report on, such as CPU, fan, or temperature. MIB contains the name, datatype, and the object identifier (OID). MIB is a hierarchical structure, displayed as a navigation tree. Every entry in the MIB tree is a value for a specific component on a specific device.

Each entry in the tree is followed by a number in parenthesis. Each entry in the tree can be specified using the sequence of numbers, such as 1.3.6.1 (iso.org.dod.internet). The unique numerical value is the OID.

For more information, see Management Information Base (MIB) for the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

The following video (2:02 min) provides an explanation of MIBs and OIDs.
