MIB Walk

The (Management Information Base) MIB Walk tool walks the SNMP tree for a target device and pulls the value of each OID in the supported MIBs. Use the MIB Walk tool to find out what MIBs and OIDs are supported on a particular device. MIB Walk uses the SolarWinds MIB database to determine the common, human-readable name for each OID and the MIB to which it belongs. SNMP communication must be enabled on the device. To walk the MIBs, you can use either the read-only or the read and write community string.

  1. Specify the host name or IP address for the device.
  2. Specify the SNMP community string.
  3. Select the SNMP tree to walk:
    • Standard starts the SNMP walk from 1.3.6.1.2
    • Private starts the SNMP walk from 1.3.6.1.4
  4. Click Walk.
