10.1. MIB Settings

The MIB Settings page enables you to configure the header information written to the MIB file. You only need to modify these settings if you are running more than one instance of ModSnmp.

The following MIB settings can be modified (see RFC 2578 for more details):

  • Module Name. Enter a name for the module. This must start with a capital letter, be at most 18 characters long, and contain only letters, digits and hyphens. ModSnmp will automatically add the suffix "-MIB" to the name. See RFC 4181 Appendix C for recommended naming conventions.

    If you will be running multiple instances of ModSnmp and their configurations are different, you should use a different module name for each instance.

  • Module Number. Enter a number for the module.

    If you will be running multiple instances of ModSnmp and their configurations are different, enter a different number for each instance. This ensures that each instance will use different OIDs.

  • Organization. Enter the name of the organization responsible for the MIB file. It may contain only displayable ASCII characters (including spaces, tabs, and newlines), and must not contain double quote (").

  • Contact. Enter contact details of the person responsible for handling technical queries about the module. It may contain only displayable ASCII characters (including spaces, tabs, and newlines), and must not contain double quote (").

  • Description. Enter a description of the module. It may contain only displayable ASCII characters (including spaces, tabs, and newlines), and must not contain double quote (").
