mib compiler alternative

I am fed up compiling mibs using the resource mib manager in IMC 7.2. I have used freeware programs with better mib compilers than this "enterprise" system. Is it possible to copy mib files so that the compiler can find the required dependencies and complie them as needed? Or at least select several required mibs togther.

I have been using this purchased software for a few weeks and find it disappointing so far. It seems incomplete and it looks like previous versions were more polished. Is it the change to html5 that is the problem?

 

Any tips welcome.

 

Thanks

Re: mib compiler alternative

You can import zip files with multiple MIB files. That helps if you've got a lot of dependencies.

What are you importing MIB files for?

Thanks that is very useful.

I will look into the zip import. The compiler seems kind of fussy and will only take .mib as the file extension. Hope that is different with the zip import. A lot of cisco mibs come with .my as the extension. I can always rename them and rezip  guess.

 

Cisco WLC, Prime, Fortigate, Bluecoat, etc.

Re: mib compiler alternative

I can't remember if you need to rename the files within a zip or not. Probably. Easy enough to script though.

Why are you importing the MIBs though - what are you planning on doing with them?

With a system that is easier to use I would graph authenticated users per SSID, connections per AP fro the WLC.

I would also graph the traffic per class on the shaper. 

With this bloatware I am not even going to make the attempt. Getting a headache from banging my head againt the wall just tring to get it to do simple things like creating a home page which shows graphs of traffic on my core switch. LOL.
