1.  Abstract

   This memo defines an experimental portion of the Management
   Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in
   TCP/IP-based internets.  In particular, this memo defines managed
   objects used for managing subnetworks which use the IEEE 802.5 Token
   Ring technology described in 802.5 Token Ring Access Method and
   Physical Layer Specifications, IEEE Standard 802.5-1989.

RFC 1231 IEEE 802.5 MIB May 1991 2. The Network Management Framework The Internet-standard Network Management Framework consists of three components. They are: RFC 1155 which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the purpose of management. RFC 1212 defines a more concise description mechanism, which is wholly consistent with the SMI. RFC 1156 which defines MIB-I, the core set of managed objects for the Internet suite of protocols. RFC 1213, defines MIB-II, an evolution of MIB-I based on implementation experience and new operational requirements. RFC 1157 which defines the SNMP, the protocol used for network access to managed objects. The Framework permits new objects to be defined for the purpose of experimentation and evaluation. 3. Objects 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) [7] defined in the SMI. In particular, each object has a name, a syntax, and an encoding. The name is an object identifier, an administratively assigned name, which specifies an object type. The object type together with an object instance serves to uniquely identify a specific instantiation of the object. For human convenience, we often use a textual string, termed the OBJECT DESCRIPTOR, to also refer to the object type. The syntax of an object type defines the abstract data structure corresponding to that object type. The ASN.1 language is used for this purpose. However, the SMI [3] purposely restricts the ASN.1 constructs which may be used. These restrictions are explicitly made for simplicity. The encoding of an object type is simply how that object type is represented using the object type's syntax. Implicitly tied to the notion of an object type's syntax and encoding is how the object type is represented when being transmitted on the network. The SMI specifies the use of the basic encoding rules of ASN.1 [8], subject to the additional requirements imposed by the SNMP. Transmission Working Group [Page 2]
RFC 1231 IEEE 802.5 MIB May 1991 3.1. Format of Definitions Section 5 contains contains the specification of all object types contained in this MIB module. The object types are defined using the conventions defined in the SMI, as amended by the extensions specified in [9,10]. 4. Overview This memo defines three tables: the 802.5 Interface Table, which contains state and parameter information which is specific to 802.5 interfaces, the 802.5 Statistics Table, which contains 802.5 interface statistics, and the 802.5 Timer Table, which contains the values of 802.5-defined timers. A managed system will have one entry in the 802.5 Interface Table and one entry in the 802.5 Statistics Table for each of its 802.5 interfaces. Implementation of the 802.5 Timer Table is optional. This memo also defines OBJECT IDENTIFIERs, some to identify 802.5 tests, for use with the ifExtnsTestTable defined in [11], and some to identify Token Ring interface Chip Sets, for use with the ifExtnsChipSet object defined in [11]. 4.1. Scope of Definitions All objects defined in this memo are registered in a single subtree within the experimental namespace [3], and are for use with every interface which conforms to the IEEE 802.5 Token Ring Access Method and Physical Layer Specifications [10]. At present, this applies to interfaces for which the ifType variable in the Internet-standard MIB [4,6] has the value: iso88025-tokenRing(9) For these interfaces, the value of the ifSpecific variable in the MIB-II [6] has the OBJECT IDENTIFIER value: dot5 OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { experimental 4 } as defined below. 4.2. Textual Conventions A new datatype, MacAddress, is introduced as a textual convention in this document. This textual convention has NO effect on either the syntax nor the semantics of any managed object. Objects defined using this convention are always encoded by means of the rules that define their primitive type. Hence, no changes to the SMI or the SNMP are Transmission Working Group [Page 3]
RFC 1231 IEEE 802.5 MIB May 1991 necessary to accommodate this textual convention which is adopted merely for the convenience of readers. 5.
