1. Introduction

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the Internet community. In particular, it defines objects for managing ethernet-like objects.

This memo also includes a MIB module. This MIB module corrects minor errors in the earlier version of this MIB: RFC 1398 [15] and also re-specifies that MIB in a manner which is both compliant to the SNMPv2 SMI and semantically-identical to the existing SNMPv1-based definitions.

2. The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework consists of four major components. They are:

o RFC 1442 [16] which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

o STD 17, RFC 1213 [6] defines MIB-II, the core set of managed objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

o RFC 1445 [17] which defines the administrative and other architectural aspects of the framework.

o RFC 1448 [18] which defines the protocol used for network access to managed objects.

The Framework permits new objects to be defined for the purpose of experimentation and evaluation.

2.1. Object Definitions

Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed the Management Inf...
