Well, yes.  Sort of.  Read up on SNMP, that should give you a good 
understanding of what a MIB is versus what an OID is.  

In my tiny mind, a MIB is a set of OIDs.  Usually a text file that can be "compiled" to make up the OIDs.  I know it's not the full explanation, 
but it's close enough for a general understanding.  

Protocol based traffic is generally not available via snmp.  There are some (like ftp and http) that may be available, but you are better off using a sniffer or protocol analyzer of some sort to get that info (like ntop or flowscan).

I am not actually sure if its the MIBs i am talking about.

This gives me the output for my eth traffic
# snmpget -Ov public interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifInOctets.1
interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifInOctets.1Counter32: 18369766

is this: "interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifInOctets.1" the MIB?

Anyway, i want to capture different stuff, like CPU usage, used Memory,

where can i find a list of that, which command gives me that list?

Thanks a lot!!!


p.s. Can i also monitor my tcp traffic, and see how much traffic was created
by the protocolls (http, ftp, etc..)
