Abstract

This RFC provides the initial version of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets in the short-term. In particular, together with its companion memos which describe the structure of management information along with the initial network management protocol, these documents provide a simple, workable architecture and system for managing TCP/IP-based internets, and in particular, the Internet. This memo specifies a draft standard for the Internet community. TCP/IP implementations in the Internet which are network manageable are expected to adopt and implement this specification.

RFC 1066 MIB August 1988

This memo specifies a draft standard for the Internet community. TCP/IP implementations in the Internet which are network manageable are expected to adopt and implement this specification.

Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

2. IAB POLICY STATEMENT

This MIB specification is the first edition of an evolving document defining variables needed for monitoring and control of various components of the Internet. Not all groups of defined variables are mandatory for all Internet components.

For example, the EGP group is mandatory for gateways using EGP but not for hosts which should not be running EGP. Similarly, the TCP group is mandatory for hosts running TCP but not for gateways which aren’t running it. What IS mandatory, however, is that all variables of a group be supported if any element of the group is supported.

It is expected that additional MIB groups and variables will be defined over time to accommodate...
