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 192.168.1.11 public interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifInOctets.1
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..)
