Management Information Base

A management information base (MIB) is a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) flat-file, nonrelational database that describes devices being monitored. Network management platforms monitor nodes by reading the value of the managed resources in the MIB. Management platforms can affect changes in managed resources by altering MIB values (e.g., by establishing thresholds beyond which alerts are created).
