The mib provider makes available probes that correspond to counters in the
Solaris management information bases (MIBs). MIB counters are used by the simple
network management protocol (SNMP) that allow remote monitoring of heterogeneous networking entities.
You can also view the counters with the kstat(1M) and netstat(1M) commands.
The mib provider facilitates quick exploration of aberrant networking behavior that is
observed using either remote or local networking monitors.
