Most servers, routers and firewalls keep their operational statistics in object identifiers (OIDs) that you can remotely retrieve via the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). For ease of use, equipment vendors provide Management Information Base (MIB) files for their devices that define the functions of the OIDs they contain. That's a lot of new terms to digest in two sentences, so take a moment to look more closely.
