IP Forwarding Table MIB

community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements.

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 routes in the IP

Internet.

It is proposed that the ipRouteTable defined by MIB-II (RFC 1213) be

deprecated and replaced with this table. This adds the ability to

set or display multi-path routes, and varying routes by network

management policy.

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.<...
