About Management Information Bases (MIBs)

Fireware XTM supports two types of Management Information Bases (MIBs).

Standard MIBs

Standard MIBs are definitions of network and hardware events used by many different devices. Your Firebox or XTM device supports these standard MIBs:

These MIBs include information about standard network information, such as IP addresses and network interface settings.

Enterprise MIBs

Enterprise MIBs are used to give information about events that are specific to a single manufacturer. Your Firebox or XTM device supports these enterprise MIBs:

These MIBs include more specific information about device hardware.

For detailed information about the content of the MIB files for Firebox or XTM devices, see Enterprise MIB File Details.

When you install the Fireware OS on your management computer, Enterprise MIBs are installed in this location:

Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Vista

C:\Users\Public\Shared WatchGuard\SNMP

Windows XP

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared WatchGuard\SNMP

If you want to install all MIBs, you must run the Fireware OS installer for all Firebox or XTM device models you use. You can find the Fireware OS installer on the WatchGuard Portal.
