Abstract

This memo defines a notation describing protocol layers in a protocol encapsulation, specifically for use in encoding INDEX values for the protocolDirTable, found in the RMON-2 MIB (Remote Network Monitoring Management Information Base) [RFC2021]. The definitions for the standard protocol directory base layer identifiers are also included.

Abstract

This memo defines a notation describing protocol layers in a protocol encapsulation, specifically for use in encoding INDEX values for the protocolDirTable, found in the RMON-2 MIB (Remote Network Monitoring Management Information Base) [RFC2021]. The definitions for the standard protocol directory base layer identifiers are also included.

The first version of the RMON Protocol Identifiers Document [RFC2074] has been split into a standards-track Reference portion (this document), and an Informational document. The RMON Protocol Identifier Macros document [RFC2896] now contains the non-normative portion of that specification.

This document obsoletes RFC 2074.
