I wanting to setup SNMP monitoring in network and need help. We have a commercial NMS to play the role of the manager in the network. We have several SNMP capable devices (Agents).
Do the MIs from the Agent vendor get loaded on both the Agent and the Manager (NMS)?
Do the MIBs determine what the NMS asks for when polling the Agent?
I guess I am confused at what role the MIBs play, as well if the OIDs are needed or inate to both devices?
