mib table

As an example, let’s take the ifinoctets.1 object in the above display, the software will ask you to use the OID instead of the name.

mib oid

If your choose No, the following window will be displayed.

mib graph
This option uses a plug-in described later on.

Warning: The LoriotgraphCounter2.slp plug-in is automatically displayed and shows the selected host interface network traffic.

graph plugin

Warning: If you use the object name and if the object name is not registered in LoriotPro the SNMP request will fail. MIB object registration is done only after a compilation and restart of LoriotPro.

This option uses the same concept as the previous one but displays a VU-meter

graph gauge

The LoriotgraphGauge3.slp plug-in is detailed in the plug-in chapter

Warning: The plug-in is automatically attached to the default host.

This option allows you to do an SNMP set command on any SNMP read-write object.

Warning: Negative values are not supported and the ReadWrite community must be valid for the selected host.

mib set

This option opens the MIB file where the object is defined  in the editor tool.

This option shows the current MIB Tree object OID string.


This option copies the object name to the clipboard

Remark: It is very useful when you write scripts with object names


This option copies the object SNMP OID to the clipboard

Remark: It is very useful when you write scripts with object names

This option forces the creation of a report with the Report Generator tool by using the MIB file.

Remark: If the script file doesn’t exist LoriotPro can generate it for you.

At this point the Report Generator tool is started.
The script interpreter performs its job and the results appear in a dedicated Navigator

Various OID informational messages are displayed in a dedicated window:
