The VMWARE-ENV-MIB.mib defines variables and trap types used to report on the state of physical components of the host computer.

VMWARE-ENV-MIB.mib defines two traps:

vmwEnvHardwareEvent, which is sent when an ESXi host has detected a material change in the physical condition of the hardware.

vmwESXEnvHardwareEvent, which is sent when an ESX host has detected a material change in the physical condition of the hardware.

Variable Definitions in VMWARE-ENV-MIB lists the variables defined in VMWARE-ENV-MIB.mib.

Description

vmwEnv

vmwProductSpecific 20

Defines the OID root for this MIB module.

vmwEnvNumber

vmwEnv 1

Number of conceptual rows in vmwEnvTable.

vmwEnvLastChange

vmwEnv 2

The value of sysUptime when a conceptual row was last added to or deleted from vmwEnvTable.

vmwEnvTable

vmwEnv 3

This table is populated by monitoring subsystems such as IPMI.

vmwEnvEntry

vmwEnvTable 1

One entry is created in the table for each physical component reporting its status to ESX/ESXi.

vmwEnvIndex

vmwEnvEntry 1

A unique identifier for the physical component. This identifier does not persist across management restarts.

vmwSubsystemType

vmwEnvEntry 2

The type of hardware component that is reporting its environmental state.

vmwHardwareStatus

vmwEnvEntry 3

The last reported status of the component.

vmwEventDescription

vmwEnvEntry 4

A description of the last reported event for this hardware component.

vmwHardwareTime

vmwEnvEntry 5

The value of sysUptime when vmwHardwareStatus was reported.
