Abstract

This specification defines an extension to the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with SNMP-based network management. In particular, it defines objects for configuring, monitoring, and controlling Data Link Switches (DLSw) [1].

This memo specifies a MIB module in a manner that is both compliant to the SNMPv2 SMI [2], and semantically identical to the SNMPv1 definitions [3].

1.0 The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

The SNMP Network Management Framework presently consists of three major components. They are:

RFC 1902 [2] which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

STD 17, RFC 1213 [4] defines MIB-II, the core set of managed objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

STD 15, RFC 1157 [5] and RFC 1905 [6] which define two versions of the protocol used for network access to managed objects.

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

1.1 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,...
