An MIB is a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) structure that describes the particular device being monitored. Cisco provides many standards-based MIBs for use in monitoring the status of devices on a network.
Advanced network management products, such as CiscoWorks QPM, use these MIBs to generate statistics about the performance of the network. Specialized QoS MIBs enable QPM to graphically display key QoS information to aid in the management of QoS policies on the network.
