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 Multiprotocol Interconnect (including IP) traffic carried over X.25. The objects defined here, along with the objects in the "SNMP MIB extension for the Packet Layer of X.25"[8], "SNMP MIB extension for LAPB"[7], and the "Definitions of Managed Objects for RS-232-like Hardware Devices" [6], combine to allow management of the traffic over an X.25 protocol stack.

1. The Network Management Framework

The Internet-standard Network Management Framework consists of three components. These components give the rules for defining objects, the definitions of objects, and the protocol for manipulating objects.

RFC 1461 Multiprotocol Interconnect on X.25 MIB May 1993

The network management framework structures objects in an abstract information tree. The branches of the tree name objects and the leaves of the tree contain the values manipulated to effect management. This tree is called the Management Information Base or MIB. The concepts of this tree are given in STD 16, RFC 1155, "The Structure of Management Information" or SMI [1]. The SMI defines the trunk of the tree and the types of objects used when defining the leaves. STD 16, RFC 1212, "Towards Concise MIB Definitions" [3], defines a more concise description mechanism that preserves all the principals of the SMI.

The core MIB definitions for the Internet suite of protocols can be found in STD 17, RFC 1213 [4], "Management Information Base for Network Management of TCP/IP-based internets".

STD 15, RFC 1157 [2] defines the SNMP protocol itself. The protocol defines how to manipulate the objects in a remo...
