Abstract

There are a wide range of networked applications for which it is appropriate to provide SNMP Monitoring. This includes both TCP/IP and OSI applications. This document defines a MIB which contains the elements common to the monitoring of any network service application. This information includes a table of all monitorable network service applications, a count of the associations (connections) to each application, and basic information about the parameters and status of each application-related association.

1. Introduction

There are a wide range of networked applications for which it is

appropriate to provide SNMP Monitoring. This includes both TCP/IP

and OSI applications. This document defines a MIB which contains the

elements common to the monitoring of any network service application.

This information includes a table of all monitorable network service

applications, a count of the associations (connections) to each

application, and basic information about the parameters and status of

each application-related association.

This MIB may be used on its own for any application, and for most

simple applications this will suffice. This MIB is also designed to

serve as a building block which can be used in conjunction with

application-specific monitoring and management. Two examples of this

are MIBs defining additional variables for monitoring a Message

Transfer Agent (MTA) service or a Directory Service Agent (DSA)

service. It...
