Abstract

This memo defines OBJECT IDENTIFIER values for use with network management protocols in the Internet community. In particular, it contains registered OID values for use with the dot3StatsEtherChipSet object in the EtherLike-MIB [16]. These registrations have been split from [16] into a separate document for maintenance purposes.

1. Introduction

This memo defines OBJECT IDENTIFIER values for use with network

management protocols in the Internet community. In particular, it

contains registered OID values for use with the dot3StatsEtherChipSet

object in the EtherLike-MIB [16]. These registrations have been

split from [16] into a separate document for maintenance purposes.

The dot3StatsEtherChipSet object has recently been deprecated. The

purpose of this document is to capture historic assignments made by

the various IETF working groups that have been responsible for

maintaining the EtherLike-MIB. Implementations which support the

dot3StatsEtherChipSet object for backwards compatability may continue

to use the OBJECT IDENTIFIER values assigned in this document.

For those chipsets not represented in this document, implementors

should assign OBJECT IDENTIFIER values within that part of the

registration tree delegated to individual enterprises.

2. The SNMP Management Framework

The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five major
