Abstract

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP based internets. In particular, it defines two MIB modules for managing the new capabilities of MAC bridges defined by the IEEE 802.1D-1998 MAC Bridges and the IEEE 802.1Q-1998 Virtual LAN (VLAN) standards for bridging between Local Area Network (LAN) segments. One MIB module defines objects for managing the 'Traffic Classes' and 'Enhanced Multicast Filtering' components of IEEE 802.1D-1998. The other MIB module defines objects for managing IEEE 802.1Q VLANs.

Abstract

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

for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP based internets.

In particular, it defines two MIB modules for managing the new

capabilities of MAC bridges defined by the IEEE 802.1D-1998 MAC

Bridges and the IEEE 802.1Q-1998 Virtual LAN (VLAN) standards for

bridging between Local Area Network (LAN) segments. One MIB module

defines objects for managing the 'Traffic Classes' and 'Enhanced

Multicast Filtering' components of IEEE 802.1D-1998. The other MIB

module defines objects for managing IEEE 802.1Q VLANs.

Provisions are made for support of transparent bridging. Provisions

are also made so that these objects apply to bridges connected by

subnetworks other than LAN segments. This memo also includes several

MIB modules in a manner that is compliant to the SMIv2 [V2SMI].

This memo supplements RFC 1493 [BRIDGEMIB] and (to a lesser extent)

RFC 1525 [SBRIDGEMIB].
