1. Abstract

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)

for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets.

In particular, it defines objects for managing devices which

implement the FDDI.

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.
