RFC 2934 Protocol Independent Multicast MIB for IPv4 October 2000

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 the Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) protocol [16,17,18,19]. This MIB module is applicable to IPv4 multicast routers which implement PIM. This MIB does not support management of PIM for other address families, including IPv6. Such management may be supported by other MIBs.

2. The SNMP Network Management Framework

The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five major components:

o An overall architecture, described in RFC 2271 [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 protocol is called SNMPv1 and described in STD 15, RFC 1157 [8]. A second version of the SNMP message protocol, which is not an Internet standards track protocol, is called SNMPv2c and described in RFC 1901 [9] and RFC 1906 [10]. The third version of the message pr...
