Maybe someone will correct me if I am wrong, but I have done some work
with F5 MIBS and if you load the MIB:
export MIBS=+LOAD-BAL-SYSTEM-MIB #The F5 Mib Name
And then run the snmpwalk the OID will be translated (if that is the
right term) into the "plain english" version of the OID:
That should be a little more descriptive as to what the reported values
Thus spake Chris Kirby (ckirbyIZZATstreetviews.com):
