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 source routing and source routing transparent bridges. These bridges are also required to implement relevant groups in the Bridge MIB.

RFC 1525 Source Routing Bridge MIB September 1993

1. Introduction

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 source routing and source routing transparent bridges. These bridges are also required to implement relevant groups in the Bridge MIB [6].

This MIB supersedes the dot1dSr group of objects published in an earlier version of the Bridge MIB, RFC 1286. Changes have primarily been made to track changes in the IEEE 802.5M SRT Addendum to the IEEE 802.1D Standard for MAC Bridges.

2. The Network Management Framework

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

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

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

o STD 15, RFC 1157 wh...
