Check Point MIB chkpnt.mib and CHECKPOINT-MIB

How to find the correct MIB for your Check Point products ?
Which version to choose among all CHECKPOINT-MIB files available on the Internet ?

Well the best MIB is the one that came with your product!
You'll be able to find it in the directory: /opt/CPshrd-R<VERSION>/lib/snmp/ and it's called: chkpnt.mib.

Check Point version<VERSION>
R65 HFA_xxR65
R75 GA / R75.10R75
R75.20 / R75.30R75.20
R75.40 / R75.45 / R75.46R75.40

For example, on a R75.40, the following files are:
# ls -la /opt/CPshrd-R75.40/lib/snmp/
total 876
drwxrwx---    2 root     root         4096 Nov 14  2012 .
drwxrwx--x    3 root     root        12288 Nov 14  2012 ..
-rwxrwx---    1 root     root        25184 Nov 14  2012 chkpnt-trap.mib
-rwxrwx---    1 root     root       295284 Nov 14  2012 chkpnt.mib
-rwxrwx---    1 root     root       542821 Nov 14  2012 mib.txt

If you can, with your current version, use one or another new feature, the MIB that you'll find will allow you to monitor it.
