I need to tweak some SNMP Views and I'm having a hard time finding something like a best practice document. I've found plenty of references to the usual ip.21 and ip.22 exclusions to block the routing table and ARP. I'd like to locate something with a comprehensive and detailed list of what's available.
Do I need to do MIB walks and parse the info myself or is there somewhere I can go for summaries?
You can take each object returned by that command, and plug them in to the MIB Object Navigator at http://www.cisco.com/go/mib or my SNMP Search & Translate tool at http://jaguar.ir.miami.edu/~marcus/snmptrans.html . That will give you specific MIB information as well as the object descriptions.
That said, there is really no need to exclude certain MIB branches unless you're seeing a performance or functional problem. You might want to limit certain branches to certain community string/users, but this would depend on what tasks those users or the applications using those credentials need to perform.
