Using MIB files

Resource Manager uses MIB files to translate SNMP traps that contain raw OID values. Loading a MIB into the system allows it to translate numeric OIDs (such as, .1.3.6.1.2.1.1.6) into descriptive phrases such as sysLocation. It also makes it easier to manipulate the events in an event mapping or transform. The following figure shows the SNMP trap interactions:
