There are a number of types of community strings, the most commonly used ones are the Read Only or "get" community string that only provides access for viewing statistics and system parameters.In many cases the Read Only community string or password is set to the word "public;" you should change it from this easy-to-guess value whenever possible.The OID path for enterprises is, therefore, 188.8.131.52.4.1.Management Information Bases (MIBs) are text definitions of each of the OID branches.
For example, the SMI org MIB defines all the topmost OIDs found at the next layer, which is named dod; the internet MIB under dod defines the function of the topmost OIDs in the directory, mgmt, experimental, and private branches.
The Linux snmpget command outputs the value of a single leaf, and the snmpwalk command provides the values of all leaves under a branch.
I'll discuss these commands later; for now, all you need to know is that the command output frequently doesn't list the entire OID, just the MIB file in which it was found and the alias within the MIB.
This chapter focuses on Fedora / Cent OS / Red Hat for simplicity of explanation.
Whenever there is a difference in the required commands for Debian / Ubuntu variations of Linux it will be [email protected]:~$ ls -l /var/lib/mysql/mysql ls: cannot access /var/lib/mysql/mysql: Permission denied [email protected]:~$ sudo ls -l /var/lib/mysql/mysql [sudo] password for peter: total 964 -rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 8820 2010-12-19 columns_-rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 0 2010-12-19 columns_priv. Most servers, routers and firewalls keep their operational statistics in object identifiers (OIDs) that you can remotely retrieve via the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
