Linux SNMP MIB Browser

An SNMP MIB browser is an indispensable tool for engineers and system administrators to manage SNMP enabled network devices such as routers, switches, servers and workstations. The information provided by SNMP includes uptime, interface traffic data, routing information, TCP and UDP connection information, installed software, and much more.

In this tutorial, I introduce qtmib, an easy-to-use SNMP browser available for Linux and published under GPLv2 license. The program is build as a front-end for net-snmp tools using QT4 library.

qtmib features

qtmib offers a number of powerful features:

  • SNMP v1 and v2c support.
  • OID translation.
  • MIB search capabilities.
  • A huge number of built-in MIBs.
  • Support for adding private MIBs.
  • Network discovery.
  • Easy-to-read reports: system, interfaces, routing table, TCP/UDP connections, running process, and installed software,


Installation follows the regular ./configure && make && sudo make install Unix pattern. You would need net-snmp tools and QT4 development libraries as dependencies. Generic Debian/Ubuntu and openSUSE/Fedora packages are provieded.
