PI uses a combination of SNMP

PI uses a combination of SNMP MIB-gathered information as well as the retrieved configuration and correlates it in a local database for presentation and retrieval by the end user as shown n the screenshot you attached. There's no one special MIB that gives you all the information.

Part of the value of an enterprise network management system such as PI is the presentation of that information from disparate sources in a useful manner.
