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 describes managed objects used for managing the bridge Network Control Protocol [10] on subnetwork interfaces using the family of Point-to-Point Protocols.

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.

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

objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

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) [3]

defined in the SMI. In particular, each object type is named by an

OBJECT IDENTIFIER, an administratively assigned name. The object

type together with an object instance serves to uniquely identify a

specifi...
