Abstract

This memo defines a set of DECnet Phase IV extensions that have been created for the Internet MIB. When used in conjunction with the structure of management information (RFC 1155), the management information base for network management of TCP/IP-based internets (RFC 1213) and the Simple Network Management Protocol (RFC 1157), it will be possible to provide integrated network management of combined TCP/IP and DECnet Phase IV based internets. This document was produced by the DECnet Phase IV MIB working group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

1. Introduction

With the adoption of The Simple Network Management Protocol (RFC 1157), the management information base for network management of TCP/IP-based internets (RFC 1213), and the structure of management information (RFC 1155), by the Internet, and a large number of vendor

implementations of these standards in commercially available products, it became possible to provide a higher level of effective network management in TCP/IP-based internets than previously available. With the growth in the use of these standards, network managers desired to use this environment as a base for providing integrated network management of multi-protocol networks.

DECnet Phase IV is one widely used protocol which often coexists in IP-based internets. This memo provides the mechanisms by which IP- based management stations can effectively manage DECnet Phase IV based systems (especially router products) in an integrated fashion through the use of the standard Internet SMI, MIB and Simple Network Management Protocol.
