Abstract

This specification defines an extension to the Management Information

Base (MIB) for use with SNMP-based network management. In

particular, it defines objects for configuring, monitoring, and

controlling Data Link Switches (DLSw) [1].

This memo specifies a MIB module in a manner that is both compliant

to the SNMPv2 SMI [2], and semantically identical to the SNMPv1

definitions [3].

1.0 The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

The SNMP Network Management Framework presently consists of three

major components. They are:

RFC 1902 [2] which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for

describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

STD 17, RFC 1213 [4] defines MIB-II, the core set of managed

objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

STD 15, RFC 1157 [5] and RFC 1905 [6] which define two vers...
