Boilerplate for IETF MIB Documents

This page defines the "standard" introductionary text to be used in IETF MIB documents. The text should be used in all new IETF standards-track MIB documents. This text may need changes if new RFCs are published, but the SMIv2 and SNMPv3 are now at STD level, so we do not expect changes in the near future. In general, if you think this text needs changes, please send an email message to the ietfmibs@ietf.org mailing list or to the responsible Area Director, bclaise@cisco.com.

Formatted Text

  1. The Internet-Standard Management Framework

For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of RFC 3410 [RFC3410].

Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed the Management Information Base or MIB. MIB objects are generally accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the Structure of Management Information (SMI). This memo specifies a MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD 58, RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [RFC2580].
