MIB Structure (SNMP) RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello,

    I am developing a sample snmp extension agent. I have gone through the toaster example.

    I guess the MIB structure should be prepared from the "xxxx.mib" file within SnmpExtensionInit function. In the Toaster example they have made the MIB structre like this :

    MIB_ENTRY Mib[] = {

          { { OID_SIZEOF(MIB_toasterManufacturer), MIB_toasterManufacturer },

            &MIB_toasterManStor, ASN_RFC1213_DISPSTRING,

            MIB_ACCESS_READ, MIB_leaf_func, &Mib[1] },


          { { OID_SIZEOF(MIB_toasterModelNumber), MIB_toasterModelNumber },

            &MIB_toasterModelStor, ASN_RFC1213_DISPSTRING,

            MIB_ACCESS_READ, MIB_leaf_func, &Mib[2] },


          { { OID_SIZEOF(MIB_toasterControl), MIB_toasterControl },

            &MIB_toasterControlStor, ASN_INTEGER,

            MIB_ACCESS_READWRITE, MIB_control_func, &Mib[3] },


          { { OID_SIZEOF(MIB_toasterDoneness), MIB_toasterDoneness },

            &MIB_toasterDonenessStor, ASN_INTEGER,

            MIB_ACCESS_READWRITE, MIB_doneness_func, &Mib[4] },


          { { OID_SIZEOF(MIB_toasterToastType), MIB_toasterToastType },

            &MIB_toasterToastTypeStor, ASN_INTEGER,

            MIB_ACCESS_READWRITE, MIB_toasttype_func, NULL }



    I want to know if this the right way to make the structure or there should be a module which reads the "xxx.mib" file and prepares the structure.

    If it is to be read from file then please help provide an example.

    Hi Utsav Agarwal


    I think your issue is about the development of Windows Networking. So I will move this one to Winsock Kernel (WSK) Forum. I think that forum will know more information about this topic than us.


    Thanks for your understanding,


    Best regards,
