Abstract

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the Internet community. This memo obsoletes RFC 2239, "Definitions of Managed Objects for IEEE 802.3 Medium Attachment Units (MAUs) using SMIv2". This memo extends that specification by including management information useful for the management of 1000 Mb/s MAUs.

Abstract

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)

for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.

This memo obsoletes RFC 2239, "Definitions of Managed Objects for

IEEE 802.3 Medium Attachment Units (MAUs) using SMIv2". This memo

extends that specification by including management information useful

for the management of 1000 Mb/s MAUs.

Ethernet technology, as defined by the 802.3 Working Group of the

IEEE, continues to evolve, with scalable increases in speed, new

types of cabling and interfaces, and new features. This evolution

may require changes in the managed objects in order to reflect this

new functionality. This document, as with other documents issued by

this working group, reflects a certain stage in the evolution of

Ethernet technology. In the future, this document might be revised,

or new documents might be issued by the Ethernet Interfaces and Hub

MIB Working Group, in order to reflect the evolution of Ethernet

technology.
