1. The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework consists of four major

components. They are:

o RFC 1441 which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for

describing and naming objects for the purpose of

management.

o STD 17, RFC 1213 defines MIB-II, the core set of managed

objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

o RFC 1445 which defines the administrative and other

architectural aspects of the framework.

o RFC 1448 which defines the protocol used for network

access to managed objects.

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

experimentation and evaluation.

1.1. Object Definitions

Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed

the Management Information Base or MIB. Objects in the MIB are

defined using the subset of Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1)

defined in the SMI. In particular, each objec...
