CLNS MIB

for use with

Connectionless Network Protocol (ISO 8473)

and

End System to Intermediate System (ISO 9542)

Status of this Memo

This memo defines an experimental portion of the Management

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

TCP/IP-based internets. This is an Experimental Protocol for the

Internet community. Discussion and suggestions for improvement are

requested. 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. 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 objects.

The Framework permits new objects to be defined for the purpose of

experimentation and evaluation.

2. Objects

Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed

the Management Information Base or MIB. Objects in the MIB are

defined using the subset of Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) [7]

defined in the SMI. In particular, e...
