Re: Is some variables in MIB of switches?

Usually if its Cisco IOS we look at the object sysObjectID to determine what type of device it is.

Peter,

NNM decides on types of devices by doing the following:

1. If it answers the bridge mib - its a bridge/switch

2. If it says ipForwarding=forwarding and multiple IP interfaces - its a router

3. If the device OID is listed in oid_to_type - according to the type defined there.

HTH,

Yigal
