packet were accounted for. [Rose 1994] shows Case Diagrams for all the groups in the MIB. 25.6 Instance Identification
Every variable in the MIB must be identified when SNMP is referencing it, to fetch or set its value.
First, only leaf nodes are referenced. SNMP does not manipulate entire rows or columns of tables.
Returning to Figure 25.7, the leaf nodes are the four that we described in Figure 25.8 and the two in
Figure 25.9. mib, udp, udpTabie, and udpEntry are not leaf nodes.
Simple variables are referenced by appending ".0" to the variable's object identifier. For example,
the counter udpInDatagrams from Figure 25.8, whose object identifier is 220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168, is
referenced as 22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.0. The textual name of this reference is
Although references to this variable are normally abbreviated as just udpInDatagrams.0, we
reiterate that the name of the variable that appears in the SNMP message (Figure 25.2) is the object
Instance identification of table entries is more detailed. Let's return to the UDP listener table (Figure
One or more indexes are specified in the MIB for each table. For the UDP listener table, the MIB
defines the index as the combination of the two variables udpLocalAddress, which is an IP
address, and udpLocalPort, which is an integer. (We showed this index in the top row in Figure
Assume there are three rows in the UDP listener table: the first row is for IP address 0.0.0.0 and
port 67, the second for 0.0.0.0 and port 161, and the third for 0.0.0.0 and port 520. Figure 25.11
shows this table.
