1. Abstract

This memo defines an experimental portion of the Management

Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in

TCP/IP-based internets. In particular, it defines managed object

types as experimental extensions to the generic interfaces structure

of MIB-II.

2. The Network Management Framework

The Internet-standard Network Management Framework consists of three

components. They are:

RFC 1155 which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for describing

and naming objects for the purpose of management. RFC 1212

defines a more concise description mechanism, which is wholly

consistent with the SMI.

RFC 1156 which defines MIB-I, the core set of managed objects for

the Internet suite of protocols. RFC 1213, defines MIB-II, an

evolution of MIB-I based on implementation experience and new

operational requirements.

RFC 1157 which defines the SNMP, the protocol used for network

access to managed objec...
