Abstract

This memo describes the common structures and identification scheme for the definition of management information used in managing TCP/IP-based internets. Included are descriptions of an object information model for network management along with a set of generic types used to describe management information. Formal descriptions of the structure are given using Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) [1].

This text was extracted from a ASCII Text document.

1. Status of this Memo

This memo provides the common definitions for the structure and

identification of management information for TCP/IP-based internets.

In particular, together with its companion memos which describe the

initial management information base along with the initial network

management protocol, these documents provide a simple, workable

architecture and system for managing TCP/IP-based internets and in

particular, the Internet.

This memo specifies a draft standard for the Internet community.
