1. The Network Management Framework

The Internet-standard Network Management Framework consists of three

components. They are:

STD 16/RFC 1155 which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for

describing and naming objects for the purpose of management. STD

16/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. STD 17/RFC 1213 defines MIB-II,

an evolution of MIB-I based on implementation experience and new

operational requirements.

STD 15/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, each objec...
