Normally you will have an interface number, most likely your 3001. But,
depending on the system 3001 may or may not by slot 3 port 1. I would
download getif and do a walk of the OID you have. Of course I would also
download the MIB file and add it to GETIF in the mibs directory, so you
have the definitions.
