1. Introduction

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

for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.

In particular, it describes managed objects used for managing

subnetworks which use the IEEE 802.5 Token Ring technology described

in 802.5 Token Ring Access Method and Physical Layer Specifications,

IEEE Standard 802.5-1989 [7]. This memo is a replacement for RFC

1231.

2. The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework consists of four major

components. They are:

o RFC 1442 [1] which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for

describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

o STD 17, RFC 1213 [2] defines MIB-II, the core set of managed

objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

o RFC 1445 [3] which defines the administrative and other

architectural aspects of the framework.
