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 bridges based on the IEEE 802.1d draft standard between Local Area Network (LAN) segments. Provisions are made for support of transparent and source route bridging. Provisions are also made so that these objects apply to bridges connected by subnetworks other than LAN segments.
