Monitoring your system : SNMP traps & queries : MIB support
MIB support
The FortiADC SNMP agent supports a few management information blocks (MIBs).
Table 10: Supported MIBs
Fortinet Core MIB
This Fortinet-proprietary MIB enables your SNMP manager to query for system information and to receive traps that are common to multiple Fortinet devices.
This Fortinet-proprietary MIB enables your SNMP manager to query for FortiADC-specific information and to receive FortiADC-specific traps.
RFC 1213 (MIB II)
The FortiADC SNMP agent supports MIB II groups, except:
There is no support for the EGP group from MIB II (RFC 1213, section 3.11 and 6.10).
Protocol statistics returned for MIB II groups (IP, ICMP, TCP, UDP, and so on.) do not accurately capture all FortiADC traffic activity. More accurate information can be obtained from the information reported by the FortiADC MIB.
RFC 2665 (Ethernet-like MIB)
The FortiADC SNMP agent supports Ethernet-like MIB information, except the dot3Tests and dot3Errors groups.
RFC 3411
SNMP v4 Architecture for SNMP Frameworks
RFC 3414
Partial support for User-based Security Model
You can obtain these MIB files from the Fortinet Technical Support web site,
To communicate with your FortiADC appliance’s SNMP agent, you must first compile these MIBs into your SNMP manager. If the standard MIBs used by the SNMP agent are already compiled into your SNMP manager, you do not have to compile them again. The FortiADC SNMP implementation is read-only.
To view a trap or query’s name, object identifier (OID), and description, open its MIB file in a plain text editor.
All traps sent include the message, the FortiADC appliance’s serial number, and host name.
For instructions on how to configure traps and queries, see “SNMP traps & queries”.
