1. The Internet-Standard Management Framework

For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current

Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of

RFC 3410 [8].

Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed

the Management Information Base or MIB. MIB objects are generally

accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the

Structure of Management Information (SMI). This memo specifies a MIB

module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD 58,

RFC 2578 [1], STD 58, RFC 2579 [2] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [3].
