1. The Network Management Framework

The Internet-standard Network Management Framework consists of three

components. They are:

STD 16/RFC 1155 [2] which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for

describing and naming objects for the purpose of management. STD

16/RFC 1212 [3] defines a more concise description mechanism,

which is wholly consistent with the SMI.

STD 17/RFC 1213 [4] which defines MIB-II, the core set of managed

objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

STD 15/RFC 1157 [5] 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.

Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed

the Management Information Base or MIB. Within a given MIB module,

objects are defined using RFC 1212's OBJECT-TYPE macro. At a

minimum, each object has a name, a syntax, an access-level, and an

implementation-status.

The name is an object identifier, an administratively assigned name,

which specifies an object type. The object type together with an

object instance serves to uniquely identify a specific instantiation

of the object. For human convenience, we often use a ...
