2. 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 HPR (High Performance Routing) capabilities.

This memo identifies managed objects for the HPR protocol.

3. The SNMP 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.

4. Overview

This document identifies objects for monitoring the configuration and

active characteristics of devices with HPR capabilities. HPR is an

enhancement to the Advanced Peer-to-Peer Network (APPN) architecture

that provides fast data routing and improved session reliability.

APPN is one of the protocols that can use the HPR transport

mechanism. See the SNANAU APPN MIB [4] for management of APPN and

APPN use of the HPR transport.

The HPR terms and overall archite...
