CISCO-VIRTUAL-NIC-MIB

This MIB module defines MIB objects which provide
        mechanisms to manage the parameters used by or
        related to Virtual NIC.
        
        Virtual switch extends across one or more
        virtualization servers which host the VM instances.
        Each virtualization server is represented as a line
        card module and is assigned to a unique slot in
        the virtual chassis.
        
        All the ports on the virtual switch which can be
        hooked up to VM VNICs or to special hypervisor ports
        (e.g. vmk or vswif ports) are represented as virtual
        ethernet interfaces.
        
        Virtual ethernet interfaces(veths) represent
        the switching ports on the virtual switch which
        provide networking connectivity to virtual packet
        based interfaces such as the Virtual NIC (VNIC)
        interfaces defined on a Virtual Machine (VM).
        
        These interfaces are configurable and provide
        operational information to the network administrator.
        
        The assignment of virtual ethernet interface ports
        to a VM does not change when the VM is migrated.
