1. The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

The major components of the SNMPv2 Network Management framework are described in the documents listed below.

o RFC 1442 [1] defines the Structure of Management Information (SMI), the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

o STD 17, RFC 1213 [2] defines MIB-II, the core set of managed objects (MO) for the Internet suite of protocols.

RFC 1567 X.500 Directory Monitoring MIB January 1994

o RFC 1445 [3] defines the administrative and other architectural aspects of the management framework.

o RFC 1448 [4] defines the protocol used for network access to managed objects.

The framework is adaptable/extensible by defining new MIBs to suit the requirements of specific applications/protocols/situations.

Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, the MIB. Objects in the MIB are defined using the subset of Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) defined in the SMI. In particular, each object type is named by an OBJECT IDENTIFIER, which is an administratively assigned name. The object type together with an object instance serves to uniquely identify a specific instantiation of the object. For human convenience, often a textual string, termed the descriptor, is used to refer to the object type.

2. MIB Model for DSA Management

A DSA-manager may wish to monitor several aspects of the operational DSA. He/she may want to know the process related aspects-the resource utilization of the operational DSA; the network service ...
