Network Working Group F. Kastenholz Request for Comments: 1398 FTP Software, Inc. Obsoletes: 1284 January 1993 Definitions of Managed Objects for the Ethernet-like Interface Types Status of this Memo This RFC specifies an IAB standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "IAB Official Protocol Standards" for the standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. Abstract This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets. In particular, it defines objects for managing ethernet-like objects. Table of Contents 1. The Network Management Framework ...................... 1 2.

Security Considerations ............................... 17 9. Author's Address ...................................... 17 1. The Network Management Framework The Internet-standard Network Management Framework consists of three components. They are: STD 16/RFC 1155 [3] which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the purpose of management. STD 16/RFC 1212 [13] defines a more concise description mechanism, which is wholly consistent with the SMI. Kastenholz [Page 1]
RFC 1398 Ethernet-Like MIB January 1993 RFC 1156 [4] which defines MIB-I, the core set of managed objects for the Internet suite of protocols. STD 17/RFC 1213 [6] defines MIB-II, an evolution of MIB-I based on implementation experience and new operational requirements. STD 15/RFC 1157 [5] 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. 2. 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. 2.1. Format of Definitions Section 4 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 [13]. Kastenholz [Page 2]
RFC 1398 Ethernet-Like MIB January 1993 3. Overview Instances of these object types represent attributes of an interface to an ethernet-like communications medium. At present, ethernet-like media are identified by three values of the ifType object in the Internet-standard MIB: ethernet-csmacd(6) iso88023-csmacd(7) starLan(11) For these interfaces, the value of the ifSpecific variable in the MIB-II [6] has the OBJECT IDENTIFIER value: dot3 OBJECT IDENTIFER ::= { transmission 7 } The definitions presented here are based on the IEEE 802.3 Layer Management Specification [9], as originally interpreted by Frank Kastenholz of Interlan in [10]. Implementors of these MIB objects should note that the IEEE document explicitly describes (in the form of Pascal pseudocode) when, where, and how various MAC attributes are measured. The IEEE document also describes the effects of MAC actions that may be invoked by manipulating instances of the MIB objects defined here. To the extent that some of the attributes defined in [9] are represented by previously defined objects in the Internet- standard MIB or in the Generic Interface Extensions MIB [11], such attributes are not redundantly represented by objects defined in this memo. Among the attributes represented by objects defined in other memos are the number of octets transmitted or received on a particular interface, the number of frames transmitted or received on a particular interface, the promiscuous status of an interface, the MAC address of an interface, and multicast information associated with an interface. The relationship between an ethernet-like interface and an interface in the context of the Internet-standard MIB is one-to-one. As such, the value of an ifIndex object instance can be directly used to identify corresponding instances of the objects defined herein. Kastenholz [Page 3]

END 5. Change Log (1) Replace old "Historical Perspective" boilerplate with the new "The Network Management Framework" boilerplate. (2) Remove the "slime text". (3) Updated the reference to the Interface Extensions mib to reflect its new RFC status. Kastenholz [Page 14]
RFC 1398 Ethernet-Like MIB January 1993 (4) Change the status of the memo section to hold the new suggested text. (5) References in ASN.1 comments were changed from the [#] form to name the actual document being referred to. These references are now meaningful when the ASN.1 is read outside of the RFC. (6) The IMPORTS section of the ASN.1 has been updated to reflect that the OBJECT-TYPE macro is imported from RFC- 1212. (7) The the Generic Ethernet-like group, containing dot3Index, dot3InitializeMac, dot3MacSubLayerStatus, dot3MulticastReceiveStatus, dot3TxEnabled, and dot3TestTdrValue has been deprecated as a result of the implementation experience presented at the San Diego IETF meeting. (8) dot3StatsInRangeLengthErrors and dot3StatsOutOfRangeLengthFields have been deprecated as a result of the implementation experience presented at the San Diego IETF meeting. (9) Update the acknowledgements section to reflect this document's history, etc. (10) REFERENCE clauses have been added to all of the MIB objects which are being retained. 12 August 1992 (1) Removed all deprecated objects. (2) Rephrased the description of the TDR test OID to reflect the fact that dot3TestTdrValue is no more. ifExtnsTestResult still points to the object containing the result, the text simply does not refer to dot3TestTdrValue. I could have deleted the Test, but the OID should then remain reserved. I figured that it would be just as easy to rephrase the definition of the test. 13 august 1992 (1) Add fuji. 86960 Kastenholz [Page 15]
RFC 1398 Ethernet-Like MIB January 1993 6. Acknowledgements This document was produced by the Ethernet MIB Working Group. This document is based on the Proposed Standard Ethernet MIB, RFC 1284 [14], of which John Cook of Chipcom was the editor. The Ethernet MIB Working Group gathered implementation experience of the variables specified in RFC 1284 and used that information to develop this revised MIB. RFC 1284, in turn, is based on a document written by Frank Kastenholz of Interlan entitled IEEE 802.3 Layer Management Draft M compatible MIB for TCP/IP Networks [10]. This document has been modestly reworked, initially by the SNMP Working Group, and then by the Transmission Working Group, to reflect the current conventions for defining objects for MIB interfaces. James Davin, of the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science, and Keith McCloghrie of Hughes LAN Systems, contributed to later drafts of this memo. Marshall Rose of Performance Systems International, Inc. converted the document into its current concise format. Anil Rijsinghani of DEC contributed text that more adequately describes the TDR test. Thanks to Frank Kastenholz of Interlan and Louis Steinberg of IBM for their experimentation. 7.
