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 Multiprotocol Interconnect (including IP) traffic carried over X.25. The objects defined here, along with the objects in the "SNMP MIB extension for the Packet Layer of X.25"[8], "SNMP MIB extension for LAPB"[7], and the "Definitions of Managed Objects for RS-232-like Hardware Devices" [6], combine to allow management of the traffic over an X.25 protocol stack.

Abstract

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

1. The Network Management Framework

The Internet-standard Network Management Framework consists of three

components. These components give the rules for defining objects,

the definitions of objects, and the protocol for manipulating

objects.

The network management framework structures objects in an abstract

information tree. The branches of the tree name objects and the

leaves of the tree contain the values manipulated to effect

management. This tree is called the Management Information Base or

MIB. The concepts of this tree are given in STD 16, RFC 1155, "The

Structure of Management Information" or SMI [1]. The SMI defines the

trunk of the tree and th...
