Abstract

The IETF Script MIB defines an interface for the delegation of management functions based on the Internet management framework. A management script is a set of instructions that are executed by a language specific runtime system. The Script MIB extensibility protocol (SMX) defined in this memo separates language specific runtime systems from language independent Script MIB implementations.
