MIB files

The FortiGate SNMP agent supports Fortinet proprietary MIBs, as well as the parts of RFC 2665 and RFC 1213 that apply to FortiGate unit configuration.

Your SNMP manager may already include standard and private MIBs in a compiled database that is ready to use. You must add the Fortinet proprietary MIBs to this database to have access to Fortinet specific information.

MIB file or RFC

Description

FORTINET-CORE-MIB.mib

The Fortinet core MIB includes all system configuration and trap information that is common to all Fortinet products.

Your SNMP manager requires this information to monitor Fortinet device settings and receive traps from the FortiGate SNMP agent.

FORTINET-FORTIGATE-MIB.mib

The FortiGate MIB includes all system configuration information and trap information that is specific to FortiGate units.

Your SNMP manager requires this information to monitor FortiGate settings and receive traps from the FortiGate SNMP agent.

RFC-1213 (MIB II)

The FortiGate SNMP agent supports MIB II groups with the following exceptions:

  • 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/etc.) do not accurately capture all Fortinet traffic activity. More accurate information can be obtained from the information reported by the Fortinet MIB.

RFC-2665 (Ethernet-like MIB)

The FortiGate SNMP agent supports Ethernet-like MIB information.

FortiGate SNMP does not support for the dot3Tests and dot3Errors groups.

To download the MIB files:
