RFC 3055 PINT MIB February 2001

1. Introduction

PINT services are an emerging set of new Internet based applications where voice (and fax) requests to the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) are carried over the Internet. RFC 2458 [1] gives a good introduction to the (pre-standard) PINT architecture and services. It also has examples of some of the early implementations of pre- PINT.

This document defines a MIB which contains the elements for monitoring the performance of a PINT based service. The MIB consists of details of the four basic PINT services and their performance statistics measured under various criteria.

It is not the purpose of this MIB to enable management of the PINT networking elements. We are concerned only with the PINT specific performance parameters. While it is understood that PINT service performance is closely related to host and network performance, they are not addressed here.

2. The SNMP Management Framework

The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five major components:

o An overall architecture, described in RFC 2571 [2].

o Mechanisms for describing and naming objects and events for the purpose of manageme...
