Abstract

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 the configuration, monitoring and controlling of network devices with APPC (Advanced Program-to-Program Communications) capabilities. This memo identifies managed objects for the SNA LU6.2 protocols. [STANDARDS-TRACK]

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 the configuration, monitoring and controlling of network devices with APPC (Advanced Program-to-Program Communications) capabilities. This memo identifies managed objects for the SNA LU6.2 protocols.

2. The SNMP Network Management Framework

The SNMP Network Management Framework consists of several components. For the purpose of this specification, the applicable components of the Framework are the SMI and related documents [2, 3, 4], which define the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the

purpose of management.

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

3. Overview

This document identifies the proposed set of objects for managing the configuration, monitoring and controlling devices with APPC capabilities. APPC is the aspect of SNA which supports peer-to-peer communication, and provides the interface for applications to communicate. In this document, we will describe LU6.2 protocol- specific managed objects.

This document describes both dependent and independent LU 6.2 protocols.

A dependent LU requires assistance from an SSCP in order to activate an LU 6.2 session. An independent LU is able to activate an LU 6.2 session without assistance from the SSCP. If the agent supports dependent LU 6.2 only, the SNA NAU MIB, RFC 1666 [7] is used instead to represent those objects.

Local LUs and partner LUs connect with each other using sessions. Multiple different sessions can be established between LUs with characteristics...
