Each SNMP element manages specific objects with each object having specific characteristics. Each object and characteristic has a unique object identifier (OID) that is associated with it. Each OID consists of the numbers that are separated by decimal points (for example, 220.127.116.11.4.1.2682.1).
These OIDs form a tree. An MIB associates each OID with a readable label and various other parameters that are related to the object. The MIB then serves as a data dictionary that is used to assemble and interpret SNMP messages. This information is saved as a MIB file.
You can check the details of the SNMP MIB file from the Setting > Notifications > Alert Configuration page. To configure the appliance SNMP manager to receive hardware monitoring related traps, click in the SNMP Server Configuration pane.
