snmp_variables(4)                File Formats                snmp_variables(4)



NAME
       snmp_variables - format of specifying variable names to SNMP tools

SYNOPSIS
       system.sysdescr.0

DESCRIPTION
       Variable  names  for  SNMP  are  in  the  format  of Object Identifiers
       (ASN.1). There are several methods  of  representation.  Each  variable
       name  is  given  in the format of A.B.C.D...., where A, B, C, and D are
       subidentifiers in one of two forms of notation. Each subidentifier  can
       be  encoded  as  a decimal integer or a symbol as found in the RFC 1066
       MIB. The case of the symbols is not significant.  If there is no  lead-
       ing period (.) in the variable name, the name will be formed as if hav-
       ing been preceded with iso.org.dod.internet.mgmt.mib. .

       A period must be placed before the first variable if  the  user  is  to
       fully specify the name. For example:

       1.1.0
       system.sysDescr.0
       1.sysDescr.0

       ...all refer to the same variable name. Likewise:

       .1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0
       .iso.org.dod.internet.mgmt.mib.system.sysdescr.0
       .1.3.6.1.2.1.1.sysdescr.0

       ...all refer to the same variable name.

       The  description of the variables in the MIB is given in the set of MIB
       files defined by the MIBS environment variable  (or  the  default  list
       defined   at   compilation   time)   and   the   MIB   files   in   the
       /etc/sma/snmp/mibs directory (or the MIBDIRS environment variable).
