MIB Variable

MIB Variable

A managed object that is defined in a Management Information Base (MIB). The object is defined by a textual name and a corresponding object identifier, a syntax, an access mode, a status, and a description of the semantics of the managed object. The MIB Variable contains pertinent management information that is accessible as defined by the access mode.
