RFC 2006 Mobile IP MIB Definition using SMIv2 October 1996

1. The SNMP Network Management Framework

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

The SMI, described in RFC 1902 [1] - the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

The MIB-II, STD 17, RFC 1213 [2] - the core set of managed objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

The protocol, RFC 1157 [3] and/or RFC 1905 [4], - the protocol for accessing managed objects.

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

2. Objects

2.1. Object Definitions

Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed the Management Information Base or 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, 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, we often use a textual string, termed the descriptor, to refer to the object type.
