3. The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework consists of seven major

components. They are:

o RFC 1902 [1] which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for

describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

o RFC 1903 [2] defines textual conventions for SNMPv2.

o RFC 1904 [3] defines conformance statements for SNMPv2.

o RFC 1905 [4] defines transport mappings for SNMPv2.

o RFC 1906 [5] defines the protocol operations used for network

access to managed objects.

o RFC 1907 [6] defines the Management Information Base for SNMPv2.

o RFC 1908 [7] specifies coexistance between SNMP and SNMPv2.

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

experimentation and evaluation.
