Abstract

Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) [1] termed the Structure of Management Information (SMI) [2]. In particular, each object type is named by an OBJECT IDENTIFIER, 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, we often use a textual string, termed the descriptor, to refer to the object type.

This text was extracted from a ASCII document.
This is the abbreviated version, containing approximately 4% of the total text.

1. Introduction

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

for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets.

In particular, it defines objects for managing network interfaces

based on IEEE 802.12.

2. Object Definitions

Management information is viewed as a collection of managed objects,

residing in a virtual information store, termed the M...
