An included MIB is used to enable you to use the name of the OID instead of
the number in the target line.

A snippet from the reference.html doc...

# ------------[snip]
Load the MIB file(s) specified and make its OIDs available as symbolic
names. For better efficiancy (Tobi: shouldn't this be efficiency :-)  ), a
cache of MIBs is maintained in the WorkDir.


 LoadMIBs: /dept/net/mibs/netapp.mib,/usr/local/lib/ft100m.mib
# ------------[snip]

I could have just said RTFM, but I'm in a good mood today :-)
