Here's another example:

MIB . ipsoProcessUtilization percent GAUGE s
C 60 80 100 A s 58720263 ALL -
C nokia.blah.foo.com 60 80 100 A s 58720263 ALL -

The example above shows two devices--one specificified by IP address, and another specified by name nokia.blah.foo.com. 

Add a .C. line for each firewall to monitor. The format above
indicates, the OID, a label, the type of variable. For each host to
query, the format indicates the host address, the collection interval
in seconds (60), the trigger threshold (80%) release threshold
(100%-no hysteresis--send event every polling interval if alarmed) ,
absolute versus relative thresholding (A), as well as the specific
trap number associated with Threshold trigger events. 

Also, here's the header of the unix file comments...
