Status of this Memo

   This memo defines a MIB for 805.5 networks for use with the SNMP
   protocol.  This memo is a product of the Transmission Working Group
   of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).  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.

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.

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.

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

   necessary to accommodate this textual convention which is adopted
   merely for the convenience of readers.
