Operations Manager 2012 as example.  Or Cisco Prime possibly. Is it dependent on what NMS you are using?

Is the MIB downloaded and installed on Operations Manager - or is a MIB something pushed out to the device you are monitoring

I use Cisco Prime, the MIB is installed on the device for which you are performing, let's say, an SNMP walk.

Here is an article for CentOS:

The MIB is installed on the server or monitoring software.  The device has embedded OIDs that match the definitions in the MIB file - thus why you need to install the file into the management software so that the OIDs are resolved to human readable events.
