I would like to retrieve the list of available SNMP names and/or OIDs for my Windows 7 machine. Is there a command to do this? Is there a common list of SNMP names available for Windows?

Currently the names I have are: cpu mem count

CPU MEM and Count are not OID's. A windows OID will start with ''. You need to find the microsoft MIBs. – Not Kyle stop stalking me Feb 21 '13 at 21:07

There won't be a single list of OIDs/Names for just "Windows"; you'll need a few different ones (some by MS, some by other entities) depending on the machine and options installed.

You could use something like SNMPWalk to get a full list of all detected OID's.

SnmpWalk allows you to detect a set of variables that are available for reading on a certain device. You can obtain a full list or just part. By analyzing the results of a network device scan obtained with SnmpWalk you can develop a list of supported MIBs and, in this way, obtain full descriptions of variables and possible values.

Also, once you install the SNMP service, you should get a set of MIBs in %systemroot%\system32:


Microsoft-defined MIB that contains object types for monitoring the network traffic between remote hosts and DHCP servers


Contains object types for monitoring and managing host resources


Covers workstation and server services


Contains the Management Information Base (MIB-II), which provides a simple, workable architecture and system for managing TCP/IP-based internets


Microsoft-defined MIB for the Windows Internet Name Service (WINS)

More info from Microsoft here and here.
