1. The Network Management Framework

The Internet-standard Network Management Framework consists of three components. They are:

STD 16, RFC 1155 [1] which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the purpose of management. STD 16, RFC 1212 [7] defines a more concise description mechanism, which is wholly consistent with the SMI.

STD 17, RFC 1213 [4] which defines MIB-II, the core set of managed objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

STD 15, RFC 1157 [3] which defines the SNMP, the protocol used for network access to managed objects.

The Framework permits new objects to be defined for the purpose of ex...
