1 Overview

This chapter provides an overview of the Oracle Communications Network Integrity MIB-II SNMP cartridge.

Modeling a Logical Device Hierarchy

The Network Integrity MIB-II SNMP cartridge enables you to discover devices in your network using the SNMP protocol.The cartridge produces a logical device hierarchy that represents the discovered device and includes a Logical Device instance and child Interface(s) or SubInterface instance(s) (collectively called interfaces).

Figure 1-1 shows a discovered logical device.

Device Support Requirements

In order to acquire complete and meaningful results, the scan requires that devices support the following MIBs at a minimum:

  • RFC1213-MIB

  • IF-MIB (RFC 2863)

  • IANAifType-MIB

  • IP-MIB (RFC 4293)

The MIB-II SNMP cartridge can discover any device that supports MIB-II.

The MIB-II SNMP cartridge can hierarchically model interfaces for devices that support the IF MIB. The cartridge creates a flat list of interfaces in the Network Integrity GUI for all devices that do not support the IF MIB. For these devices the do not support IF MIB, some interface field values revert to MIB-II definitions rather than the IF MIB definitions.

The MIB-II SNMP cartridge can poll devices for IPv6 address if those devices support IP MIB.
