Using MIB Browser for SNMP Walk/Query

This could be done using open/free snmp tools available on the internet. I found the Ireasoning mib browser quick helpful and easy.

Install the Mib Browser and add your managed device using v2/v3.

Configured the MIB browser as following: Tools > Options > Agent > Add > Add the managed device ip address and the community string.

Get the correct MIB file for your managed device. I am using Cisco WLC as the managed device and got the MIB downloaded from the Cisco support Site.

Load the correct MIB file on the Mib Browser. File > Load Mibs > Choose the file location.

Browse and poll for the related OID.

I am polling for the AP native vlan Id as follows:

 

If you know the OID, you can directly use the OID and do get to get the related information:

 

Hope this would be helpful.
