The standardized configuration and database of network management information is called a Management Information Base (MIB). A standard MIB is common to all SNMP interfaces. An extension MIB is defined by the particular managed device or protocol.

A MIB is a collection of standardized configuration and network management information that is contained in each device on the network. Each MIB contains a set of parameters called managed objects. Each managed object consists of a parameter name, one or more parameters, and a group of operations that can be executed with the object. The MIB defines the type of information that can be obtained from a managed device, and the device settings that can be controlled from a management system.

The MIB definition file is located in the program\SNMP folder of the software media kit.

  • VSPStorageSystemMIB.txt

    The software media kit for VSP E series stores this MIB definition file.

  • VSPGxx0MIB.txt

    The software media kit for VSP G130, G/F350, G/F370, G/F700, G/F900 stores this MIB definition file.

Note: If you cannot use two or more MIB definition files for VSP E series, USP, USP V/VM, VSP, VSP G1x00, VSP F1500, VSP Gx00 models, or VSP Fx00 models because of the specifications of the SNMP manager software, use the MIB definition file for VSP E series, or the MIB definition file for VSP G130, G/F350, G/F370, G/F700, G/F900. Error reports include storage system nicknames, which can be used to identify each storage system.
