CISCO SNMP OBJECT NAVIGATOR
Locate and Utilize MIB Information

The Cisco SNMP Object Navigator is an online tool that helps you find and download Management Information Base (MIB) information.

You can use Cisco SNMP Object Navigator to:

  • Translate/Browse -- Translate an object ID into an object name, translate an object name into an object ID, or browse the object tree.


  • Search -- Search object names and descriptions to receive a list of objects and MIBs that match your query.


  • View & Download MIBs -- View MIB dependencies and download MIBs, or view formatted MIB contents. This enhanced search allows you to select a MIB quickly by entering the MIB name or selecting from a list.


  • MIB Support in Software -- Find MIBs by Cisco IOS image name through direct integration with the MIB Locator tool. You can find all MIBs supported in an IOS version.

The Translate/Browse page displays the OID tree by default. In addition, you can view object details by rolling your mouse over objects in the OID tree.

Visit the SNMP Object Navigator today and take advantage of this helpful online tool:

CCIE Central - UPDATE:
Change to Routing and Switching Lab Equipment and IOS

Effective November 13, 2006, CCIE Routing and Switching labs will begin replacing the Catalyst 3550 with the Cisco Catalyst 3560 Series enterprise-class switches.

All CCIE Routing and Switching candidates taking exams on or after that date should be familiar with the new switches and associated IOS. No changes are being made to the lab exam blueprint at this time and candidates should continue to refer to the existing CCIE Routing and Switching Lab Exam Blueprint for exam topics.

Note: Some candidates may not see the new equipment in their exams right away as installation of the new equipment will take place over several months.

For additional details, see the Routing and Switching Lab Equipment and IOS Versions at:
