Configuring the MIB Profile

The MIB profile collects MIB statistics and logs them to a file. The MIB profile specifies the SNMP operation and MIB object names for which statistics are collected.

To configure a MIB profile, include the mib-profile statement at the [edit accounting-options] hierarchy level:

[edit accounting-options]mib-profile profile-name {file filename;interval minutes;object-names {mib-object-name;}operation operation-name;}

To configure a MIB profile, perform the tasks described in the following sections:

Configuring the File Information

Each accounting profile logs its statistics to a file in the /var/log directory.

To configure which file to use, include the file statement at the [edit accounting-options mib-profile profile-name] hierarchy level:

[edit accounting-options mib-profile profile-name]file filename;

You must specify a filename for the MIB profile that has already been configured at the [edit accounting-options] hierarchy level.

Configuring the Interval

A MIB profile has statistics collected once per interval time specified for the profile. Statistics collection time is scheduled evenly over the configured interval. To configure the interval, include the interval statement at the [edit accounting-options mib-profile profile-name] hierarchy level:

[edit accounting-options mib-profile profile-name]interval;

The range for the interval statement is 1 through 2880 minutes. The default is 30 minutes.

Configuring the MIB Operation

A MIB profile must specify the operation that is used to collect MIB statistics. To configure which operation is used to collect MIB statistics, include the operation statement at the [edit accounting-options mib-profile profile-name] hierarchy level:

[edit accounting-options mib-profile profile-name]operation operation-name;

You can configure a get, get-next, or walk operation. The default operation is walk.

Configuring MIB Object Names

A MIB profile must specify the MIB objects for which statistics are to be collected. To configure the MIB objects for which statistics are collected, include the objects-names statement at the [edit accounting-options mib-profile profile-name] hierarchy level:

[edit accounting-options mib-profile profile-name]object-names {mib-object-name;}

You can include multiple MIB object names in the configuration.

Example: Configuring a MIB Profile

Configure a MIB profile:

[edit accounting-options]mib-profile mstatistics {file stats;interval 60;operation walk;objects-names {ipCidrRouteStatus;ifOutOctets;}}
