Abstract

This memo defines an experimental portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the Internet community. In particular, it describes the algorithms required to identify different protocol encapsulations managed with the Remote Network Monitoring MIB Version 2 [RMON2]. Although related to the original Remote Network Monitoring MIB [RFC1757], this document refers only to objects found in the RMON-2 MIB.
