1.  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 [7] defines a more concise description mechanism,
      which is wholly consistent with the SMI.

      RFC 1156 [2] which defines MIB-I, the core set of managed objects
      for the Internet suite of protocols.  STD 17/RFC 1213 [4] defines
      MIB-II, an evolution of MIB-I based on implementation experience
      and new operational requirements.

      STD 15/RFC 1157 [3] 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) [5]
   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 [1] 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



McMaster & McCloghrie                                           [Page 2]

RFC 1368                   802.3 Repeater MIB               October 1992


   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 [6],
   subject to the additional requirements imposed by the SNMP.

2.1.  Format of Definitions

   Section 4 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 [7,8].

3.  Overview

   Instances of the object types defined in this memo represent
   attributes of an IEEE 802.3 (Ethernet-like) repeater, as defined by
   Section 9, "Repeater Unit for 10 Mb/s Baseband Networks" in the IEEE
   802.3/ISO 8802-3 CSMA/CD standard [9].

   These Repeater MIB objects may be used to manage non-standard
   repeater-like devices, but defining objects to describe
   implementation-specific properties of non-standard repeater-like
   devices is outside the scope of this memo.

   The definitions presented here are based on the IEEE draft standard
   P802.3K, "Layer Management for 10 Mb/s Baseband Repeaters." [Section 19,"">10]
   Implementors of these MIB objects should note that [Section 19,"">10] explicitly
   describes when, where, and how various repeater attributes are
   measured.  The IEEE document also describes the effects of repeater
   actions that may be invoked by manipulating instances of the MIB
   objects defined here.

   The counters in this document are defined to be the same as those
   counters in the IEEE 802.3 Repeater Management draft, with the
   intention that a single instrumentation can be used to implement both
   the IEEE and IETF management standards.

3.1.  Terminology

3.1.1.  Repeaters, Hubs and Concentrators

   In late 1988, the IEEE 802.3 Hub Management task force was chartered
   to define managed objects for both 802.3 repeaters and the proposed
   10BASE-FA synchronous active stars.  The term "hub" was used to cover
   both repeaters and active stars.

   In March, 1991, the active star proposal was dropped from the
   10BASE-F draft.  Subsequently the 802.3 group changed the name of the



McMaster & McCloghrie                                           [Page 3]

RFC 1368                   802.3 Repeater MIB               October 1992


   task force to be the IEEE 802.3 Repeater Management Task Force, and
   likewise renamed their draft.

   The use of the term "hub" has led to some confusion, as the terms
   "hub," "intelligent hub," and "concentrator" are often used to
   indicate a modular chassis with plug-in modules that provide
   generalized LAN/WAN connectivity, often with a mix of 802.3 repeater,
   token ring, and FDDI connectivity, internetworked by bridges,
   routers, and terminal servers.

   To be clear that this work covers the management of IEEE 802.3
   repeaters only, the editors of this MIB definitions document chose to
   call this a "Repeater MIB" instead of a "Hub MIB."

3.1.2.  Repeaters, Ports, and MAUs

   The following text roughly defines the terms "repeater," "port," and
   "MAU" as used in the context of this memo.  This text is imprecise
   and omits many technical details.  For a more complete and precise
   definition of these terms, refer to Section 9 of [9].

   An IEEE 802.3 repeater connects "Ethernet-like" media segments
   together to extend the network length and topology beyond what can be
   achieved with a single coax segment.  It can be pictured as a star
   structure with two or more input/output ports.  The diagram below
   illustrates a 6-port repeater:

                           ^      ^
                           |      |
                          \ \   / /
                           \ \ / /
                       _____\ v /_____
                    -> ______   ______ ->
                            / ^ \
                           / / \ \
                          / /   \ \
                           |      |
                           v      v

                    Figure 1.  Repeater Unit


   All the stations on the media segments connected to a given
   repeater's ports participate in a single collision domain.  A packet
   transmitted by any of these stations is seen by all of these
   stations.

   Data coming in on any port in the repeater is transmitted out through



McMaster & McCloghrie                                           [Page 4]

RFC 1368                   802.3 Repeater MIB               October 1992


   each of the remaining n-1 ports.  If data comes in to the repeater on
   two or more ports simultaneously or the repeater detects a collision
   on the incoming port, the repeater transmits a jamming signal out on
   all ports for the duration of the collision.

   A repeater is a bit-wise store-and-forward device.  It is
   differentiated from a bridge (a frame store-and-forward device) in
   that it is primarily concerned with carrier sense and data bits, and
   does not make data-handling decisions based on the legality or
   contents of a packet.  A repeater retransmits data bits as they are
   received.  Its data FIFO holds only enough bits to make sure that the
   FIFO does not underflow when the data rate of incoming bits is
   slightly slower than the repeater's transmission rate.

   A repeater is not an end-station on the network, and does not count
   toward the overall limit of 1024 stations.  A repeater has no MAC
   address associated with it, and therefore packets may not be
   addressed to the repeater or to its ports.  (Packets may be addressed
   to the MAC address of a management entity that is monitoring a
   repeater.  This management entity may or may not be connected to the
   network through one of the repeater's ports.  How the management
   entity obtains information about the activity on the repeater is an
   implementation issue, and is not discussed in this memo.)

   A repeater is connected to the network with Medium Attachment Units
   (MAUs), and sometimes through Attachment Unit Interfaces (AUIs) as
   well.  ("MAUs" are also known as transceivers, and an "AUI" is the
   same as a 15-pin Ethernet or DIX connector.)

   The 802.3 standard defines a "repeater set" as the "repeater unit"
   plus its associated MAUs (and AUIs if present).  The "repeater unit"
   is defined as the portion of the repeater set that is inboard of the
   physical media interfaces.  The MAUs may be physically separate from
   the repeater unit, or they may be integrated into the same physical
   package.

McMaster & McCloghrie                                           [Page 5]

RFC 1368                   802.3 Repeater MIB               October 1992


   The most commonly-used MAUs are the 10BASE-5 (AUI to thick "yellow"
   coax), 10BASE-2 (BNC to thin coax), 10BASE-T (unshielded twisted-
   pair), and FOIRL (asynchronous fiber optic inter-repeater link, which
   is being combined into the 10BASE-F standard as 10BASE-FL).  The
   draft 10BASE-F standard also includes the definition for a new
   synchronous fiber optic attachment, known as 10BASE-FB.

   It should be stressed that the repeater MIB being defined by the IEEE
   covers only the repeater unit management - it does not include
   management of the MAUs that form the repeater set.  The IEEE
   recognizes that MAU management should be the same for MAUs connected
   to end-stations (DTEs) as it is for MAUs connected to repeaters.
   This memo follows the same strategy; the definition of management
   information for MAUs is being addressed in a separate memo.

3.1.3.  Ports and Groups

   Repeaters are often implemented in modular "concentrators," where a
   card cage holds several field-replaceable cards.  Several cards may
   form a single repeater unit, with each card containing one or more of
   the repeater's ports.  Because of this modular architecture, users
   typically identify these repeater ports with a card number plus the
   port number relative to the card, e.g., Card 3, Port 11.

   To support this modular numbering scheme, this document follows the
   example of the IEEE Repeater Management draft [Section 19,"">10], allowing an
   implementor to separate the ports in a repeater into "groups", if
   desired.  For example, an implementor might choose to represent
   field-replaceable units as groups of ports so that the port numbering
   would match the modular hardware implementation.

   This group mapping is recommended but optional.  An implementor may
   choose to put all of a modular repeater's ports into a single group,
   or to divide the ports into groups that do not match physical
   divisions.

   The object rptrGroupCapacity, which has a maximum value of 1024,
   indicates the maximum number of groups that a given repeater may
   contain.  The value of rptrGroupCapacity must remain constant from
   one management restart to the next.

   Each group within the repeater is uniquely identified by a group
   number in the range 1..rptrGroupCapacity. Groups may come and go
   without causing a management reset, and may be sparsely numbered
   within the repeater.  For example, in a 12-card cage, cards 3, 5, 6,
   and 7 may together form a single repeater, and the implementor may
   choose to number them as groups 3, 5, 6, and 7, respectively.




McMaster & McCloghrie                                           [Page 6]

RFC 1368                   802.3 Repeater MIB               October 1992


   The object rptrGroupPortCapacity, which also has a maximum value of
   1024, indicates the maximum number of ports that a given group may
   contain. The value of rptrGroupPortCapacity must not change for a
   given group.  However, a group may be deleted from the repeater and
   replaced with a group containing a different number of ports.  The
   value of rptrGroupLastOperStatusChange will indicate that a change
   took place.

   Each port within the repeater is uniquely identified by a combination
   of group number and port number, where port number is an integer in
   the range 1..rptrGroupPortCapacity.  As with groups within a
   repeater, ports within a group may be sparsely numbered.  Likewise,
   ports may come and go within a group without causing a management
   reset.

3.2.  Supporting Functions

   The IEEE 802.3 Hub Management draft [Section 19,"">10] defines the following seven
   functions and seven signals used to describe precisely when port
   counters are incremented.  The relationship between the functions and
   signals is shown in Figure 3.

   The CollisionEvent, ActivityDuration, CarrierEvent, FramingError,
   OctetCount, FCSError, and SourceAddress output signals defined here
   are not retrievable MIB objects, but rather are concepts used in
   defining the MIB objects.  The inputs are defined in Section 9 of the
   IEEE 802.3 standard [9].

             Figure 3.  Port Functions Relationship


   Collision Event Function:  The collision event function asserts the
   CollisionEvent signal when the CollIn(X) variable has the value SQE.
   The CollisionEvent signal remains asserted until the assertion of any
   CarrierEvent signal due to the reception of the following event.

   Carrier Event Function:  The carrier event function asserts the
   CarrierEvent signal when the repeater exits the IDLE state, Fig 9-2
   [9], and the port has been determined to be port N.  It deasserts the
   CarrierEvent signal when, for a duration of at least Carrier Recovery
   Time (Ref: 9.5.6.5 [9]), both the DataIn(N) variable has the value II
   and the CollIn(N) variable has the value -SQE.  The value N is the
   port assigned at the time of transition from the IDLE state.

   Framing Function:  The framing function recognizes the boundaries of
   an incoming frame by monitoring the CarrierEvent signal and the
   decoded data stream.  Data bits are accepted while the CarrierEvent



McMaster & McCloghrie                                           [Page 8]

RFC 1368                   802.3 Repeater MIB               October 1992


   signal is asserted.  The framing function strips preamble and start
   of frame delimiter from the received data stream.  The remaining bits
   are aligned along octet boundaries.  If there is not an integral
   number of octets, then FramingError shall be asserted.  The
   FramingError signal is cleared upon the assertion of the CarrierEvent
   signal due to the reception of the following event.

   Activity Timing Function:  The activity timing function measures the
   duration of the assertion of the CarrierEvent signal.  This duration
   value must be adjusted by removing the value of Carrier Recovery Time
   (Ref: 9.5.6.5 [9]) to obtain the true duration of activity on the
   network.  The output of the Activity Timing function is the
   ActivityDuration value, which represents the duration of the
   CarrierEvent signal as expressed in units of bit times.

   Octet Counting Function:  The octet counting function counts the
   number of complete octets received from the output of the framing
   function.  The output of the octet counting function is the
   OctetCount value.  The OctetCount value is reset to zero upon the
   assertion of the CarrierEvent signal due to the reception of the
   following event.

   Cyclic Redundancy Check Function:  The cyclic redundancy check
   function verifies that the sequence of octets output by the framing
   function contains a valid frame check sequence field.  The frame
   check sequence field is the last four octets received from the output
   of the framing function.  The algorithm for generating an FCS from
   the octet stream is specified in 3.2.8 [9].  If the FCS generated
   according to this algorithm is not the same as the last four octets
   received from the framing function then the FCSError signal is
   asserted.  The FCSError signal is cleared upon the assertion of the
   CarrierEvent signal due to the reception of the following event.

   Source Address Function:  The source address function extracts octets
   from the stream output by the framing function.  The seventh through
   twelfth octets shall be extracted from the octet stream and output as
   the SourceAddress variable.  The SourceAddress variable is set to an
   invalid state upon the assertion of the CarrierEvent signal due to
   the reception of the following event.

3.3.  Structure of MIB

   Objects in this MIB are arranged into MIB groups.  Each MIB group is
   organized as a set of related objects.







McMaster & McCloghrie                                           [Page 9]

RFC 1368                   802.3 Repeater MIB               October 1992


3.3.1.  The Basic Group Definitions

   This mandatory group contains the objects which are applicable to all
   repeaters.  It contains status, parameter and control objects for the
   repeater as a whole, the port groups within the repeater, as well as
   for the individual ports themselves.

3.3.2.  The Monitor Group Definitions

   This optional group contains monitoring statistics for the repeater
   as a whole and for individual ports.

3.3.3.  The Address Tracking Group Definitions

   This optional group contains objects for tracking the MAC addresses
   of the DTEs attached to the ports of the repeater.

3.4.  Relationship to Other MIBs

   It is assumed that a repeater implementing this MIB will also
   implement (at least) the 'system' group defined in MIB-II [4].

3.4.1.  Relationship to the 'system' group

   In MIB-II, the 'system' group is defined as being mandatory for all
   systems such that each managed entity contains one instance of each
   object in the 'system' group.  Thus, those objects apply to the
   entity even if the entity's sole functionality is management of a
   repeater.

3.4.2.  Relationship to the 'interfaces' group

   In MIB-II, the 'interfaces' group is defined as being mandatory for
   all systems and contains information on an entity's interfaces, where
   each interface is thought of as being attached to a 'subnetwork'.
   (Note that this term is not to be confused with 'subnet' which refers
   to an addressing partitioning scheme used in the Internet suite of
   protocols.)

   This Repeater MIB uses the notion of ports on a repeater.  The
   concept of a MIB-II interface has NO specific relationship to a
   repeater's port.  Therefore, the 'interfaces' group applies only to
   the one (or more) network interfaces on which the entity managing the
   repeater sends and receives management protocol operations, and does
   not apply to the repeater's ports.

   This is consistent with the physical-layer nature of a repeater.  A
   repeater is a bitwise store-and-forward device.  It recognizes



McMaster & McCloghrie                                          [Page 10]

RFC 1368                   802.3 Repeater MIB               October 1992


   activity and bits, but does not process incoming data based on any
   packet-related information (such as checksum or addresses).  A
   repeater has no MAC address, no MAC implementation, and does not pass
   packets up to higher-level protocol entities for processing.

   (When a network management entity is observing the repeater, it may
   appear as though the repeater is passing packets to a higher-level
   protocol entity.  However, this is only a means of implementing
   management, and this passing of management information is not part of
   the repeater functionality.)

3.5.  Textual Conventions

   The datatype MacAddress is used 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.

RFC 1368                   802.3 Repeater MIB               October 1992


               related to the operational status of the repeater.
               This trap is sent on completion of a repeater
               reset action.  A repeater reset action is defined
               as an a transition to the START state of Fig 9-2
               in section 9 [IEEE 802.3 Std], when triggered by a
               management command (e.g., an SNMP Set on the
               rptrReset object).

               The agent must throttle the generation of
               consecutive rptrResetEvent traps so that there is
               at least a five-second gap between them.

               The rptrResetEvent trap is not sent when the agent
               restarts and sends an SNMP coldStart or warmStart
               trap.  However, it is recommended that a repeater
               agent send the rptrOperStatus object as an
               optional object with its coldStart and warmStart
               trap PDUs.

               The rptrOperStatus object must be included in the
               varbind list sent with this trap.  The agent may
               optionally include the rptrHealthText object as
               well."
