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, this memo defines managed objects used for managing subnetworks which use the IEEE 802.5 Token Ring technology described in 802.5 Token Ring Access Method and Physical Layer Specifications, IEEE Standard 802.5-1989.

IEEE 802.5 Token Ring MIB

Status of this Memo

This memo defines a MIB for 805.5 networks for use with the SNMP

protocol. This memo is a product of the Transmission Working Group

of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). This RFC specifies an

IAB standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests

discussion and suggestions for improvements. Please refer to the

current edition of the "IAB Official Protocol Standards" for the

standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution of

this memo is unlimited.

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, this memo defines managed

objects used for managing subnetworks which use the IEEE 802.5 Token

Ring technology described in 802.5 Token Ring Access Method and

Physical Layer Specifications, IEEE Standard 802.5-1989.

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...
