This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)

In particular, it describes a set of extensions which instrument DNS

resolver functions. This memo was produced by the DNS working group.

With the adoption of the Internet-standard Network Management

Framework [4,5,6,7], and with 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 was previously

available. With the growth in the use of these standards, it has

become possible to consider the management of other elements of the

infrastructure beyond the basic TCP/IP protocols. A key element of

the TCP/IP infrastructure is the DNS.

Up to this point there has been no mechanism to integrate the

management of the DNS with SNMP-b...
