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 defines objects for monitoring and controlling

network devices with APPN (Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking)

capabilities. This memo identifies managed objects for the APPN

protocol.

2. The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

The SNMP Network Management Framework consists of several components.

For the purpose of this specification, the applicable components of

the Framework are the SMI and related documents [1, 2, 3], which

define the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the

purpose of management.

The Framework permits new objects to be defined for the purpose of

experimentation and evaluation.

3. Overview

This document identifies a set of objects for monitoring the

configuration and active characteristics of devices with APPN

capabilities, and for controlling certain characteristics. APPN is

the aspect of Systems Network Architecture (SNA) that supports peer-

to-peer networking. These networks transport both independent and

dependent LU ...
