A data base of objects, with attributes and values, representing the manageable components of a network device. Used in SNMP. There are industry standardized MIBs and proprietary MIBs.
An SNMP-defined data structure used for storing and retrieving information to and from network elements.
A database containing data about managed network objects.
A database of objects that can be monitored by a network management system. MIBs are used to add additional features to the SNMP protocol used by LanSafe when communicating with a UPS over a network.
A structured set of data variables, called objects, in which each variable represents some resource to be managed. A related collection of resources to be managed.
A database of objects that can be monitored by a network management system. Both SNMP and RMON use standardized MIB formats that allow any SNMP and RMON tools to monitor any device defined byan MIB.
A structured collection of managed resources. Each node on the network maintains a MIB reflecting the managed resource's status at any given time. An MIB is structured like a tree. The most general information about the network is stored at the top of the tree. Each branch gets more detailed into the specific network area. The leaves are the most specific level of detail, usually relating to specific devices attached to the network.
A conceptual composite of information about all managed objects in an open system.
A virtual information store for managed objects. MIBs define the properties of a managed object within the device to be managed.
Software that describes aspects of a network that can be managed by using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). The MIB files included in Windows can be used by third-party SNMP monitors to enable SNMP monitoring of the Web and FTP services of IIS.
The data specification for passing information using the SNMP protocol. An MIB is also a database of managed objects accessed by network management protocols.
The set of variables or database that a gateway running CMOT, SNMP, or CMIP network management protocols maintains. It defines variables needed by the SNMP protocol to monitor and control components in a network. Managers fetch or store into these variables. MIB-II refers to an extended SNMP management database that contains variables not shared by both CMOT and SNMP. The CMIP and SNMP MIB formats differ in structure and complexity.
A description of a network element that is used for network management purposes.
A database containing the information pertinent to network management. The database is conceptually organized as a tree.
A collection of network operational information residing in a virtual store that may be accessed, typically through a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)-compliant system, for analysis.
A collection of data objects that can be accessed via a network management protocol such as Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). General information can be found in RFC 1156.
The Management Information Base is the language to describe the parameters managed through the SNMP protocol.
The structure of the database in an Powerware power system.
The set of parameters an SNMP management station can query or set in the SNMP agent of a network device (e.g., router). Standard, minimal MIBs have been defined, and vendors often have Private enterprise MIBs. In theory, any SNMP manager can talk to any SNMP agent with a properly defined MIB.

A formal description of a set of network objects that can be managed using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). The format of the MIB can be defined as part of the SNMP.
A logical database residing in the managed system which defines a set of MIB objects. These MIB objects are individual pieces of information that reside in the SNMP Agent and define aspects of a system, such as CPU utilization, software name, hardware type, and so on. A MIB is considered a logical database; actual data is not stored in it, but it provides a view of the data that can be accessed on a managed system.
A database used by SNMP containing configuration and statistical information about devices on a network.
(MIB) A database of managed objects.
A database of information on managed objects that can be accessed via network management protocols such as SNMP and CMIP.
The set of managed objects in a system, together with their attributes, constitutes that system's management information base. It is a conceptual repository of management information at each system.
A database of objects with attributes and values representing the manageable components of a network device. Used in SNMP. There are industry-standard M113s as well as proprietary M113s.
A set of objects that represent various types of information about a device, used by Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to manage the device. Because different network management services are used for different types of devices and protocols, each service has its own set of objects. See also: Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP); service
When SNMP devices send SNMP messages to the management console,...
A logical naming of all information sources residing in a network and pertinent to the network's management. Simple Network Management Protocol's (SNMP) management uses a set of standard MIBs known as MIB II and other standards MIBs for FDDI, Ethernet, and others. In addition, vendors write proprietary MIB extensions for SNMP management of particular devices. The MIB is also the database of configuration and performance data for network device.
A database used by the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to check network statistics and configurations. An SNMP management station can query a MIB or set it in an SNMP agent (for example, router). Standard, minimal MIBs have been defined (MIB I, MIB II), and vendors often have custom entries. In theory, any SNMP manager can talk to any SNMP agent with a properly defined MIB.
A management information base (MIB) stems from the OSI/ISO Network management model and is a type of database used to manage the devices in a communications network. It comprises a collection of objects in a (virtual) database used to manage entities (such as routers and switches) in a network.
