If you already know the OID for a particular SNMP object (statistic or trap) and want to know the OIDs of similar objects so you can monitor them, you can explore the MIB that contains the known OID.

  2. Search the entire MIB tree for the known OID. The search result displays the MIB path for the OID, as well as information about the OID (for example, name, status, and description). You can then select other OIDs in the same MIB to see information about them.
  3. (
    Walk a MIB to display all its objects.
