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 devices which implement the FDDI based on the ANSI FDDI SMT 7.3 draft standard [8], which has been forwarded for publication by the X3T9.5 committee.

1. The Network Management Framework

The Internet-standard Network Management Framework consists of three

components. They are:

o 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.

o STD 17, RFC 1213 defines MIB-II, the core set of managed objects

for the Internet suite of protocols.

o 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.
