RFC 2021 Remote Network Monitoring MIB January 1997

1. The Network Management Framework

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

RFC 1902 [1] which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

RFC 1213, STD 17, [3] which defines MIB-II, the core set of managed objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

RFC 1905 [4] 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 experimentation and evaluation.

Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed the Management Information Base or MIB. Within a given MIB module, objects are defined using the SMI’s OBJECT-TYPE macro. At a minimum, each object has a name, a syntax, an access-level, and an implementation-status.

The name is an object identifier, an administratively assigned name, which specifies an object type. The object type together with an object i...
