3. 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 [1, 2, 3], 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.

4. Overview

This document identifies objects for monitoring the configuration and active characteristics of devices with HPR capabilities. HPR is an enhancement to the Advanced Peer-to-Peer Network (APPN) architecture that provides fast data routing and improved session reliability. APPN is one of the protocols that can use the HPR transport mechanism. See the SNANAU APPN MIB [4] for management of APPN and APPN use of the HPR transport.

The HPR terms and overall architecture [5] are available at http://www.networking.ibm.com/app/aiwdoc/aiwsrc.htm.

Automatic Network Routing (ANR) is a fast low-level routing technique. Each node assigns a unique (within that node) ANR label for each out-bound link as it is activated. The label size is defined by th...
