sysctlview is a graphical sysctl MIB explorer for FreeBSD, each object represents a parameter of the kernel, sysctlview can show the properties of an object and get or set its value.

New version improvements:

Click a column title to sort, example with "Name" column:

Added Handler entry (kernel function pointer to get or set a value) can be Defined or Undefined. It is useful to know if an object has a value and because the OID of a node with a Defined handler can be extended to pass an input.

And...
