SNMP MIB for HP Procurve switches?

Is there a MIB that will correlate interface names with interface IDs? I am using The Dude network management software and it's only showing me the interface number like:


1 (1)




25 (25)


I've been looking around for a bit and can't find it. Any help would be appreicated, thanks!

Re: SNMP MIB for HP Procurve switches?

If you want the MIBs, you start at the support home page http://h17007.www1.hp.com/uk/en/support/converter/index.aspx , enter your product code, and go to the download pages.


Having said that, you don't need it because it's all in the standard IF-MIB (RFC 2233) . The only problem is that ifDescr for the physical interfaces are fairly boring.


 snmpwalk -m ALL <redacted> ifDescr
IF-MIB::ifDescr.1 = STRING: 1
IF-MIB::ifDescr.2 = STRING: 2
IF-MIB::ifDescr.3 = STRING: 3
IF-MIB::ifDescr.4 = STRING: 4

IF-MIB::ifDescr.4152 = STRING: HP ProCurve Switch software loopback interface


If you tag the ports with names you can use ifAlias but that defaults to null.
