Where is a MIB actually installed on the NMS (server eg ops manager) or on the device to be monitored

I think on NMS ? - Is any part of a MIB installed on the device to be monitored.

thanks

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.

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:
