Abstract

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) as defined in [1] is now used as an integral part of the network management framework for TCP/IP-based internets. Together, with its companions standards, which define the Structure of Management Information (SMI) [2], and the Management Information Base (MIB) [3], the SNMP has received widespread deployment in many operational networks running the Internet suite of protocols.

1. Status of this Memo

This memo defines an experimental means for running the Simple

Network Management Protocol (SNMP) over OSI transports.

This memo does not specify a standard for the Internet community,

However, after experimentation, if sufficient consensus is reached in

the Internet community, then a subsequent revision of this document

might be made an Internet standard for those systems choosing to

implement the SNMP over OSI transport services.

Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

2. Background

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) as defined in [1] is

now used as an integral part of the network management framework for

TCP/IP-based internets. Together, with its companions standards,

which define the Structure of Management Information (SMI) [2], and

the Management Information Base (MIB) [3], the SNMP has received

widespread deployment in many operational networks running the

Internet suite of protocols.

It should not be surprising that many of these sites might acquire

OSI capabilities and may wish to leverage their investment in SNMP

technology towards managing those OSI components. This memo

addresses these concerns by defining a framework for running the SNMP

in an environment which supports the OSI transport services.
