Abstract

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets. In particular, it defines objects for managing remote network monitoring (RMON) devices for use on high speed networks. This document contains a MIB Module that defines these new objects and also contains definitions of some updated objects from the RMON-MIB in RFC 2819 and the RMON2-MIB in RFC 2021.

RFC 3273          Remote Network Monitoring Management         July 2002

1.  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].
