After a walk is completed, the O.I.D returned from . will provide the devices specific OID to be used.

For example the first two lines from a walk show:

. = STRING: "Linux SOCC-CPSG5100-1 2.6.18-92cpx86_64 #1 SMP Fri Apr 7 13:55:39 IDT 2017 x86_64"
. = OID:

By looking under . for any device, the result will be that device's sys Object ID (OID).
