RFC 2932 IPv4 Multicast Routing MIB October 2000

1. Introduction

This MIB describes objects used for managing IP Multicast Routing [16], independent of the specific multicast routing protocol [17-21] in use. Managed objects specific to particular multicast routing protocols are specified elsewhere. Similarly, this MIB does not support management of multicast routing for other address families, including IPv6. Such management may be supported by other MIBs.

2. The SNMP Management Framework

The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five major components:

o An overall architecture, described in RFC 2571 [1].

o Mechanisms for describing and naming objects and events for the purpose of management. The first version of this Structure of Management Information (SMI) is called SMIv1 and described in STD 16, RFC 1155 [2], STD 16, RFC 1212 [3] and RFC 1215 [4]. The second version, called SMIv2, is described in STD 58, RFC 2578 [5], STD 58, RFC 2579 [6] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [7].

o Message protocols for transferring management information. The first version of the SNMP message protoco...
