Abstract

As reported in RFC 1052, IAB Recommendations for the Development of Internet Network Management Standards [1], the Internet Activities Board has directed the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to create two new working groups in the area of network management. One group is charged with the further specification and definition of elements to be included in the Management Information Base. The other is charged with defining the modifications to the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to accommodate the short-term needs of the network vendor and operator communities. The long-term needs of the Internet community are to be met using the ISO CMIS/CMIP [2,3] framework as a basis. An existing IETF working group, the "NETMAN" group, is already engaged in defining the use of CMIS/CMIP in a TCP/IP network, and will continue with responsibility for addressing the longer-term requirements.

1. Status of this Memo

This memo provides the initial version of the Management Information

Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based

internets in the short-term. In particular, together with its

companion memos which describe the structure of management

information 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.

TCP/IP implementations in the Internet which are network manageable

are expected to adopt and implement this specification.

Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

2. IAB POLICY STATEMENT

This MIB specification is the first edition of an evolving document

defining variables needed for monitoring and control of various

components of the Internet. Not all groups of defined variables are

mandatory for all Internet components.

For example, the EGP group is mandatory for gateways using EGP but

not for hosts which should not be running EGP. Similarl...
