Abstract

This document is one in the series of documents that provide MIB definitions for for IP Version 6. Specifically, the IPv6 MIB textual conventions as well as the IPv6 MIB General group is defined in this document.

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the IPv6-based internets.

This document specifies a MIB module in a manner that is both compliant to the SNMPv2 SMI, and semantically identical to the peer SNMPv1 definitions.

1. The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

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

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

o the MIB-II, described in RFC 1213/STD 17 [3] - the core set of managed objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

o RFC 1157/STD 15 [4] and RFC 1905 [5] which define two versions of the protocol used for network access to managed objects.

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, 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 object instance serves to uniquely identify a specific instantiation of the object. For human c...
