Abstract

This memo contains various protocol identifier examples, which can be used to produce valid protocolDirTable INDEX encodings, as defined by the Remote Network Monitoring MIB (Management Information Base) Version 2 [RFC2021] and the RMON Protocol Identifier Reference [RFC2895].

This document contains protocol identifier macros for well-known protocols. A conformant implementation of the RMON-2 MIB [RFC2021] can be accomplished without the use of these protocol identifiers, and accordingly, this document does not specify any IETF standard. It is published to encourage better interoperability between RMON-2 agent implementations, by providing a great deal of RMON related protocol information in one document.

The first version of the RMON Protocol Identifiers Document [RFC2074] has been split into a standards-track Reference portion [RFC2895], and an "RMON Protocol Identifier Macros", document (this document) which contains the non-normative portion of that specification.
