   This document specifies a way to complement IP Flow Information    Export (IPFIX) Data Records with Management Information Base (MIB)    objects, avoiding the need to define new IPFIX Information Elements    for existing MIB objects that are already fully specified.

   Two IPFIX Options Templates, as well as a method for creating IPFIX    Options Templates that are used to export the extra data required to    fully describe Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) MIB objects    in IPFIX, are specified herein.
