Abstract

This memo defines extensions to the Remote Network Monitoring MIB for

managing 802.5 Token Ring networks.

The Remote Network Monitoring MIB, RFC 1271, defines a framework for

remote monitoring functions implemented on a network probe. That MIB

defines objects broken down into nine functional groups. Some of

those functional groups, the statistics and the history groups, have

a view of the data-link layer that is specific to the media type and

require specific objects to be defined for each media type. RFC 1271

defined those specific objects necessary for Ethernet. This

companion memo defines those specific objects necessary for Token

Ring LANs.

In addition, this memo defines some additional monitoring functions

specifically for Token Ring. These are defined in the Ring Station

Group, the Ring Station Order Group, the Ring Station Configuration

Group, and the Source Routing Statistics Group.
