1. The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

The major components of the SNMPv2 Network Management framework are

described in the documents listed below.

o RFC 1442 [1] defines the Structure of Management Information

(SMI), the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects

for the purpose of management.

o STD 17, RFC 1213 [2] defines MIB-II, the core set of managed

objects (MO) for the Internet suite of protocols.

o RFC 1445 [3] defines the administrative and other

architectural aspects of the management framework.

o RFC 1448 [4] defines the protocol used for network access to

managed objects.

The framework is adaptable/extensible by defining new MIBs to suit

the requirements of specific applications/protocols/situations.

Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, the

MIB. Objects in the MIB are defined using the subset of Abstract

Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) defined in the SMI. In particular, each

object type is named by an OBJECT IDENTIFIER, which is an

administratively assigned name. The object type together with an

object instance serves to uniquely identify a specific instantiation

of the object. For human convenience, often a textual string, termed

the desc...
