1. The Network Management Framework
The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five major components:
- An overall architecture, described in RFC 2571 .
- Mechanisms for describing and naming objects and events for the purpose of management. The first version of this Structure of Management Information (SMI) is called SMIv1 and described in STD 16, RFC 1155 , STD 16, RFC 1212  and RFC 1215 . The second version, called SMIv2, is described in STD 58, RFC 2578 , RFC 2579  and RFC 2580 .
- Message protocols for transferring management information. The first version of the SNMP message protocol is called SNMPv1 and described in STD 15, RFC 1157 . A second version of the SNMP message protocol, which is not an Internet standards track protocol, is called SNMPv2c and described in RFC 1901  and RFC 1906 . The third version of the message protocol is called SNMPv3 and described in RFC 1906 , RFC 2572  and RFC 2574 .
- Protocol operations for accessing management information. The first set of protocol operations and associated PDU formats is described in STD 15, RFC 1157 . A second set of protocol operations and associat...
