RFC 3144 Remote Monitoring MIB Extensions August 2001

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 defines a method of sorting the interfaces of a monitored device according to values of parameters specific to this interface.

This memo also includes a MIB module. This MIB module extends the list of managed objects specified in [RFC2819] and [RFC2613].

The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMEND", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

2. The SNMP Management Framework

The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five major components:

o An overall architecture, described in RFC 2571 [RFC2571].

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 [RFC1155], STD 16, RFC 1212 [RFC1212] and RFC 1215 [RFC1215]. The second version, called SMIv2, is described in STD 58, RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [RFC2580].

o Message protocols for transferring management informatio...
