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 monitoring and controlling network devices with APPN (Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking) capabilities. This memo identifies managed objects for the APPN protocol.

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 monitoring and controlling network devices with APPN (Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking) capabilities. This memo identifies managed objects for the APPN protocol.

2. The SNMPv2 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 [1, 2, 3], which define the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

RFC 2155 Definitions of Managed Objects for APPN June 1997

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

3. Overview

This document identifies a set of objects for monitoring the configuration and active characteristics of devices with APPN capabilities, and for controlling certain characteristics. APPN is the aspect of Systems Network Architecture (SNA) that supports peer- to-peer networking. These networks transport both independent and dependent LU session traffic. See the SNANAU APPC MIB [7] and the SNA NAU MIB [8] for management of these sessions. See also the DLUR MIB[9], and the HPR MIB[10] for management of extensions to the APPN architecture. In this document, we describe APPN managed objects.

An APPN network comprises various types of nodes, and transmission groups (TGs) that connect the nodes. Network nodes (NNs) provide directory and routing functions for session establishment. NNs may be session end points or intermediate nodes in a session. A border node is a type of network node that connects networks together for session establishment without fully m...
