MIB Browser is an auxiliary application for HostMonitor, however it can be used independently as well. It is included into Advanced Host Monitor package (since version 5.70); it can also be downloaded separately at download page
MIB Browser allows you to view the hierarchy of SNMP MIB variables in the form of a tree and provides you with additional information about each node.
With MIB Browser you can easily load (compile) standard and proprietary MIB files, view and manipulate data that is available in an SNMP agent.
When you are configuring SNMP Get or SNMP Trap test methods with MIB Browser installed HostMonitor allows you to specify SNMP variables by a name (e.g. iso.org.dod.internet.mgmt.mib-2.system.sysUpTime.0) as well as by an OID in numeric format (e.g. 220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.0). If you click on "Browse MIBs" button next to "OID" field, HostMonitor will launch MIB Browser displaying the hierarchy tree of SNMP variables. The specified variable (if any) is highlighted and additional information is displayed for it (such as status, access mode, description).
Now you may browse variables, choose another variable if needed and click [Ok] button to use the selected variable by HostMonitor. Also, by using a database of compiled MIB files HostMonitor may translate OID from its numeric form to the MIB name for received SNMP Trap messages. In such case MIB Browser is needed when you want to extend a database to include information about MIBs supported by some specific SNMP enabled device (e.g. your CISCO 1603 router).
MIB Browser may perform SNMP Get and Get_Next requests allowing you to check the propriety and current value of the counter on specific SNMP agent.
