Abstract

A management system contains: several (potentially many) nodes, each with a processing entity, termed an agent, which has access to management instrumentation; at least one management station; and, a management protocol, used to convey management information between the agents and management stations. Operations of the protocol are carried out under an administrative framework which defines authentication, authorization, access control, and privacy policies.

SNMPv2 Management Information Base

for the User Datagram Protocol using SMIv2

Status of this Memo

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the

Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for

improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet

Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state

and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

IESG Note:

The IP, UDP, and TCP MIB modules currently support only IPv4. These

three modules use the IpAddress type defined as an OCTET STRING of

length 4 to represent the IPv4 32-bit internet addresses. (See RFC

1902, SMI for SNMPv2.) They do not support the new 128-bit IPv6

internet addresses.

1. Introduction

A management system contains: several (potentially many) nodes, each

with a processing entity, termed an agent, which has access to

management instrumentation; at least one management station; and, a

management protocol, used to convey management information between

the agents and management stations. Operations of the protocol are

carried out under an administrative framework which defines

authentication, authorization, access control, and privacy policies.

Management stations execute management applications which monitor and

control managed elements. Managed elements are devices such as

hosts, routers, terminal servers, etc., which are monitored and

controlled via access to their management information.

Management information is viewed as a collection of managed objects,

residing in a virtual information store, termed the Management
