What are "MIB"s?

Many network devices and programs come with so-called MIB files that describe the parameters and readings which are available for monitoring via SNMP. MIB files are information files that are independent of hardware and operating systems. They tell network management systems how to retrieve data from devices like routers, switches and network printers, as well as many server software products.

MIB files describe the available readings in tables, values, and registers, using a special abstract text format (Abstract Syntax Notation One ASN.1). Because of this, they need to be translated into a more software compliant form so that network monitoring tools such as PRTG Network Monitor can work quickly and seamlessly with the data. This is the task of a MIB browser. Our MIB-Importer translates MIB files into Paessler's XML-based OID-Library format. Read more on OID files here.

MIB-Importer - More Than a MIB Browser

The new version of our MIB Importer Tool is now available for download. It includes a large set of MIB files, and the parser software has been improved to make it compatible with more MIBs. Rather than simply browsing your MIB variables with a MIB browser, try converting them to a more manageable form and using PRTG to work with them.

Even if you are not using PRTG, you can use our free MIB-Importer to browse your network devices to identify OIDs and import those manually into other monitoring products.
