Currently we can ask our CMTS with sh cable modem XXXX.YYYY.ZZZZ to get the following information:

MAC Address

IP Address

Prim Sid



Upstream Power

Downstream Power

Timing Offset

Initial Timing Offset

Received Power

MAC Version

QoS Provisioned Mode

Enable DOCSIS2.0 Mode

Phy Operating Mode


Sid/Said Limit

Optional Filtering Support

Transmit Equalizer Support

Number of CPE IPs




Stn Mtn Failures

Total US Flows

Total DS Flows

Total US Data

Total US Throughput

Total DS Data

Total DS Throughput

Active Classifiers

DSA/DSX messages

Dynamic Secret

Total Time Online

Is it possible for me to use SNMP instead and get the same data back, either from the CMTS or directly from the Cable modem. If yes, where can I find the correct SNMP OIDs?

A Management Information Base (MIB) is a collection of information that can be managed by the SNMP manager.

The objects in a MIB are organized and identified by object identifiers (OID) that are defined by the IETF and other organizations.

Here is the link for the Admission Control MIB Specifications for the Cisco CMTS :

Also refer the below link which will helps you for the CMTS :

Thanks for your reply.

What I am actually after is some kind of mapping from the sh cable modem command to a corresponding SNMP OID.

For example, this link shows us some details, but doesn't give mapping for all sh cable modem commands.

Anyone who know if/where more detailed information can be gathered?
