interface MIBEdit

Of SNMP MIB-2 variables, interface(2) has two child OIDs: ifNumber(1) and ifTable(2)

As depicted in the image, ifNumber(1) has no other child OID, however ifTable(2) has 22 child OIDs.

The information related to each of these blocks, are provided below:

Description:

Reference to MIB definitions specific to the particular media being used to realize the interface. For example, if the interface is realized by an ethernet, then the value of this object refers to a document defining objects specific to ethernet. If this information is not present, its value should be set to the OBJECT IDENTIFIER {0 0}, which is a syntatically valid object identifier, and any conformant implementation of ASN.1 and BER must be able to generate and recognize this value.
