1. 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.

1.1. Object Definitions

Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store,...
