Please Whitelist This Site?

I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)

If you like The TCP/IP Guide, please consider the download version. It's priced very economically and you can read all of it in a convenient format without ads.

If you want to use this site for free, I'd be grateful if you could add the site to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on tcpipguide.com". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||tcpipguide.com^$document". Then just click OK.

Thanks for your understanding!

Sincerely, Charles Kozierok

MIB Module Format

The format for MIB modules is described in the Structure of Management Information standard, version 2 (SMIv2). The document specifies how modules are to be defined in a way very similar to how objects themselves are defined, by listing a set of characteristics that must be included in each module description. The module fields are:

  • Module Name: The name of the module. Remember that modules are really objects, syntactically, so like regular objects they have a textual object descriptor (like tcpMIB) and an object identifier (in the case of tcpMIB, the number 50).

  • Last Updated: The date and time that the module was last revised.

  • Organization: The name of the organization that is managing the development of the module.

  • Contact Information: The name, address, telephone number and e-mail address of the “point person” for this module.

  • Description: A description of the module.

  • Revision and Revision Description: One Revision entry is placed for each revision of the module to show its history. Each entry has a description associated with it.

After the definition of the module itself, the objects in the module are described. For an example, see RFC 2012, which defines the SNMPv2 TCP MIB we've been discussing in this example.
