The SNMP MIB Walker

This dialog lets you browse MIBs installed on your WhatsUp Gold system in the context of a specified computer or networked device. If the computer is SNMP enabled and is configured to use a selected MIB, you can use this dialog to select very specific information to be gathered on that device.

Note: If a selected MIB does not have a property and value listed, the device selected is not configured to use that MIB.

To select a MIB for a monitor:

  1. Select the appropriate node from the MIB tree in the left hand pane. After the MIB is selected, view the available properties and values of that item in the right pane. A description of the MIB appears at the bottom of the dialog.  
  2. Select the specific property you want to monitor or collect statistics on. After you select a specific property, the box at the bottom of the dialog shows a detailed description of the property. The description may contain a list of possible values for the property. The selected Object and Instance IDs appear below the MIB lists.
  3. Click OK to save changes.
