Abstract

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the Internet community. In particular, it describes managed objects used for managing dial-up modems and similar dial-up devices. This MIB module provides a set of objects that are the minimum necessary to provide the ability to monitor and control those devices, and is consistent with the SNMP framework and existing SNMP standards.

1. Introduction

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

for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.

In particular, it describes managed objects used for managing dial-up

modems and similar dial-up devices. This MIB module provides a set

of objects that are the minimum necessary to provide the ability to

monitor and control those devices, and is consistent with the SNMP

framework and existing SNMP standards.

2. The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework consists of four major

components. They are:

o RFC 1442 which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for

describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

o STD 17, RFC 1213 defines MIB-II, the core set of managed objects

for the Internet suite of protocols.

o RFC 1445 which defines the administrative and other

architectural aspects of the framework.

o RFC 1448 which defines the protocol used for network access to

managed objects.
