1. Introduction

This memo defines a set of DECnet Phase IV extensions that have been

created for the Internet MIB. It reflects changes which are the

result of operational experience based on RFC 1289.

When used in conjunction with the structure of management information

(STD 16, RFC 1155), the management information base for network

management of TCP/IP-based internets (STD 17, RFC 1213) and the

Simple Network Management Protocol (STD 15, RFC 1157), it will be

possible to provide integrated network management of combined TCP/IP

and DECnet Phase IV based internets. This document was produced by

the DECnet Phase IV MIB working group of the Internet Engineering

Task Force (IETF).

With the adoption of The Simple Network Management Protocol (STD 15,

RFC 1157), the management information base for network management of

TCP/IP-based internets (STD 17, RFC 1213), and the structure of

management information (STD 16, RFC 1155), by the Internet, and a

large number of vendor implementations of these standards in

commercially available products, it became possible to provide a

higher level of effective network management in TCP/IP-based

internets than previously available. With the growth in the use of

these standards, network managers desired to use this environment as

a base for providing integrated network management of multi-protocol

networks.

DECnet Phase IV is one widely used protocol which often coexists in

IP-based internets. This memo provides the mechanisms by which IP-

based mana...
