1. The Network Management Framework

The Internet-standard Network Management Framework consists of three components. They are:

STD 16, RFC 1155 [1] which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

STD 16, RFC 1212 [2] defines a more concise description mechanism, which is wholly consistent with the SMI.

STD 17, RFC 1213 [3] which defines MIB-II, the core set of managed objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

STD 15, RFC 1157 [4] which defines the SNMP, the protocol used for network access to managed objects.
