The MIBBrowser class is used to parse SNMP MIB Module definitions.

Class Name


Procedural Interface

 ipworkssnmp_mibbrowser_register_callback($res, $id, $function);
 ipworkssnmp_mibbrowser_set($res, $id, $index, $value);
 ipworkssnmp_mibbrowser_get($res, $id, $index);
 ipworkssnmp_mibbrowser_do_config($res, $configurationstring);
 ipworkssnmp_mibbrowser_do_loadmib($res, $filename);
 ipworkssnmp_mibbrowser_do_selectnode($res, $selector);


The MIBBrowser class allows easy loading and querying of definitions in the SNMP Management Information Base (MIB) specifications.

The LoadMib method allows loading of MIB modules, which get stored in an internal tree structure for further queries.

If modules reference (import) other modules, recursive loading of modules is performed automatically and/or controlled by the ImportSymbols event.

The MIB tree is navigated through the SelectNode method, which enables pointing to a node in the tree specified by NodeOid and NodeLabel. Other node information is provided through the NodeModuleName, NodeFileName, NodeSyntax, NodeType, and NodeAccess properties.

The node selector parameter in SelectNode can be a label such as "internet", an OID such as "", a combination of the two: "iso.3.dod.internet", or a label in a particular module such as "RFC1213-MIB!interfaces".

Node children and successors are provided by the ListChildren and ListSuccessors methods. The individual node information is provided via the MibNode event.

Module traps are listed via the ListTraps method. The individual trap information is provided through the TrapNode event.

ConfigSets or retrieves a configuration setting.
ListChildrenLists the immediate children of the selected node.

Event List

The following is the full list of the events fired by the class with short descriptions. Click on the links for further details.

ErrorErrors that occur while loading/parsing MIB modules are fired through this event.
ImportSymbolsList of imported symbols and the respective modules where they are declared.
MibNodeThis event fires once for every child or successor of the currently selected node when invoking ListChildren or ListSuccessors .
TrapNodeLists module trap information.

Configuration Settings
