Appendix A: Fortinet MIBs
FortiADC MIBs lists the management information bases (MIBs) used with FortiADC.
|MIB or RFC||Description|
|Fortinet Core MIB||This Fortinet-proprietary MIB enables your SNMP manager to query for system information and to receive traps that are common to multiple Fortinet devices.|
|FortiADC MIB||This Fortinet-proprietary MIB enables your SNMP manager to query for FortiADC-specific information and to receive FortiADC-specific traps.|
|RFC 1213 (MIB II)||The FortiADC SNMP agent supports MIB II groups, except: There is no support for the EGP group from MIB II (RFC 1213, section 3.11 and 6.10). Protocol statistics returned for MIB II groups (IP, ICMP, TCP, UDP, and so on) do not accurately capture all FortiADC traffic activity. More accurate information can be obtained from the information reported by the FortiADC MIB.|
|RFC 3635 (Ethernet-like MIB)||The FortiADC SNMP agent uses any of the objects in the Ethernet-like interface types specification (dot3StatsIndex).|
You can download the Fortinet MIB files from the Fortinet Customer Service & Support website, https://support.fortinet.com/. See FortiADC MIB download.
To view a trap or query’s name, object identifier (OID), and description, open its MIB file in a plain text editor.
To communicate with the FortiADC SNMP agent, you must first compile these MIBs into your SNMP manager. If the standard MIBs used by the SNMP agent are already compiled into your SNMP manager, you do not have to compile them again. The FortiADC SNMP implementation is read-only.
All traps sent include the message, the FortiADC appliance’s serial number, and hostname.
