1. Introduction

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the Internet community. Specifically, this memo extends the basic Network Services Monitoring MIB [8] to allow monitoring of Message Transfer Agents (MTAs). It may also be used to monitor MTA components within gateways.

3. The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework consists of seven major components. They are:

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

o RFC 1903 [2] defines textual conventions for SNMPv2.

o RFC 1904 [3] defines conformance statements for SNMPv2.

o RFC 1905 [4] defines transport mappings for SNMPv2.

o RFC 1906 [5] defines the protocol operations used for network access to managed objects.

o RFC 1907 [6] defines the Management Information Base for SNMPv2.

o RFC 1908 [7] specifies coexistance between SNMP and SNMPv2.

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

3.1. 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, each object type is named by an OBJECT IDENTIFIER, an administratively assigned name. The object type together with an o...
