                           Host Resources MIB

Status of this Memo

   This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the
   Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
   improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet
   Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) 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 the Internet community.
   This memo obsoletes RFC 1514, the "Host Resources MIB". This memo
   extends that specification by clarifying changes based on
   implementation and deployment experience and documenting the Host
   Resources MIB in SMIv2 format while remaining semantically identical
   to the existing SMIv1-based MIB.

   This memo defines a MIB for use with managing host systems.  The term
   "host" is construed to mean any computer that communicates with other
   similar computers attached to the internet and that is directly used
   by one or more human beings. Although this MIB does not necessarily
   apply to devices whose primary function is communications services
   (e.g., terminal servers, routers, bridges, monitoring equipment),
   such relevance is not explicitly precluded.  This MIB instruments
   attributes common to all internet hosts including, for example, both
   personal computers and systems that run variants of Unix.

1.  The SNMP Management Framework

   The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five major
   components:

   o   An overall architecture, described in RFC 2571 [RFC2571].

   o   Mechanisms for describing and naming objects and events for the
       purpose of management. The first version of this Structure of
       Management Information (SMI) is called SMIv1 and described in STD
       16, RFC 1155 [RFC1155], STD 16, RFC 1212 [RFC1212] and RFC 1215
       [RFC1215]. The second version, called SMIv2, is described in STD
       58, RFC 2578 [RFC2578], RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and RFC 2580
       [RFC2580].

   o   Message protocols for transferring management information. The
       first version of the SNMP message protocol is called SNMPv1 and
       described in STD 15, RFC 1157 [RFC1157]. A second version of the
       SNMP message protocol, which is not an Internet standards track
       protocol, is called SNMPv2c and described in RFC 1901 [RFC1901]
       and RFC 1906 [RFC1906]. The third version of the message protocol
       is called SNMPv3 and described in RFC 1906 [RFC1906], RFC 2572
       [RFC2572] and RFC 2574 [RFC2574].




Waldbusser & Grillo         Standards Track                     [Page 2]

RFC 2790                   Host Resources MIB                 March 2000


   o   Protocol operations for accessing management information. The
       first set of protocol operations and associated PDU formats is
       described in STD 15, RFC 1157 [RFC1157]. A second set of protocol
       operations and associated PDU formats is described in RFC 1905
       [RFC1905].

   o   A set of fundamental applications described in RFC 2573 [RFC2573]
       and the view-based access control mechanism described in RFC 2575
       [RFC2575].

   A more detailed introduction to the current SNMP Management Framework
   can be found in RFC 2570 [RFC2570].

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  Objects in the MIB are
   defined using the mechanisms defined in the SMI.

   This memo specifies a MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2. A
   MIB conforming to the SMIv1 can be produced through the appropriate
   translations. The resulting translated MIB must be semantically
   equivalent, except where objects or events are omitted because no
   translation is possible (use of Counter64). Some machine readable
   information in SMIv2 will be converted into textual descriptions in
   SMIv1 during the translation process.  However, this loss of machine
   readable information is not considered to change the semantics of the
   MIB.

2.  Host Resources MIB

   The Host Resources MIB defines a uniform set of objects useful for
   the management of host computers.  Host computers are independent of
   the operating system, network services, or any software application.

   The Host Resources MIB defines objects which are common across many
   computer system architectures.

   In addition, there are objects in the SNMPv2-MIB [RFC1907] and IF-MIB
   [RFC2233] which also provide host management functionality.
   Implementation of the System and Interfaces groups is mandatory for
   implementors of the Host Resources MIB.

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED","MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

3.  IANA Considerations

   This MIB contains type definitions for storage types, device types,
   and file system types for use as values for the hrStorageType,
   hrDeviceType, and hrFSType objects, respectively. As new computing
   technologies are developed, new types need to be registered for these
   technologies. The IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) is
   designated as the registration authority for new registrations beyond
   those published in this document. The IANA will maintain the HOST-
   RESOURCES-TYPES module as new registrations are added and publish new
   versions of this module.

   Given the large number of such technologies and potential confusion
   in naming of these technologies (such as a technology known by two
   names or a name and an acronym), there is a real danger that more
   than one registration might be created for what is essentially the
   same technology. In order to ensure that future type registrations
   are performed correctly, applications for new types will be reviewed
   by a Designated Expert appointed by the IESG.

      DESCRIPTION
          "Clarifications and bug fixes based on implementation
          experience.  This revision was also reformatted in the SMIv2
          format. The revisions made were:

          New RFC document standards:
             Added Copyright notice, updated introduction to SNMP
             Framework, updated references section, added reference to
             RFC 2119, and added a meaningful Security Considerations
             section.

          New IANA considerations section for registration of new types

          Conversion to new SMIv2 syntax for the following types and
          macros:
              Counter32, Integer32, Gauge32, MODULE-IDENTITY,
              OBJECT-TYPE, TEXTUAL-CONVENTION, OBJECT-IDENTITY,
              MODULE-COMPLIANCE, OBJECT-GROUP

          Used new Textual Conventions:
              TruthValue, DateAndTime, AutonomousType,
              InterfaceIndexOrZero

          Fixed typo in hrPrinterStatus.

          Added missing error bits to hrPrinterDetectedErrorState and
          clarified confusion resulting from suggested mappings to
          hrPrinterStatus.

           hardware or software product.  It is suggested that
           these OBJECT IDENTIFIERs are allocated such that all
           products from a particular manufacturer are registered
           under a subtree distinct to that manufacturer.  In
           addition, all versions of a product should be
           registered under a subtree distinct to that product.
           With this strategy, a management station may uniquely
           determine the manufacturer and/or model of a product
           whose productID is unknown to the management station.
           Objects of this type may be useful for inventory
           purposes or for automatically detecting
           incompatibilities or version mismatches between
           various hardware and software components on a system.

           For example, the product ID for the ACME 4860 66MHz
           clock doubled processor might be:
           enterprises.acme.acmeProcessors.a4860DX2.MHz66

           An entry shall be placed in the storage table for each
           logical area of storage that is allocated and has
           fixed resource limits.  The amount of storage
           represented in an entity is the amount actually usable
           by the requesting entity, and excludes loss due to
           formatting or file system reference information.

           These entries are associated with logical storage
           areas, as might be seen by an application, rather than
           physical storage entities which are typically seen by
           an operating system.  Storage such as tapes and
           floppies without file systems on them are typically
           not allocated in chunks by the operating system to
           requesting applications, and therefore shouldn't
           appear in this table.  Examples of valid storage for
           this table include disk partitions, file systems, ram
           (for some architectures this is further segmented into
           regular memory, extended memory, and so on), backing
           store for virtual memory (`swap space').

           This table is intended to be a useful diagnostic for
           `out of memory' and `out of buffers' types of
           failures.  In addition, it can be a useful performance

6.  Internationalization Considerations

   This MIB has many objects that identify file-system pathnames on the
   managed host. Many file systems allow pathnames to be encoded in a
   variety of character sets (other than ASCII), but do not support the
   encoding of the actual character set used with the pathname. The
   implementation strategy is that user interfaces (i.e. character-based
   shells or graphical applications) will have configuration options
   that control with which character set they will interpret and display
   all pathnames. This is often a per-user configuration (e.g. an
   environment variable), so that users using different languages and
   character sets on a multi-user system may each work effectively with
   their preferred character set. A human usually controls this
   configuration. If an application is not configured or is configured
   incorrectly, it will often have trouble displaying pathnames in the
   intended character set.

   This situation made it important for this MIB to handle two issues:

   1) Pathname objects must be able to transfer a variety of character
      sets with potentially multi-byte encodings; and,







Waldbusser & Grillo         Standards Track                    [Page 44]

RFC 2790                   Host Resources MIB                 March 2000


   2) HostMIB agents will generally not be correctly configured for the
      appropriate character set to be used for all files on the system,
      particularly on a system with multiple users using different
      character sets. It was thus impossible to mandate that the agent
      tag pathnames with the character set in use.

   These issues were solved with the introduction of the
   InternationalDisplayString textual convention, which supports multi-
   byte encodings. Network management stations should use a local
   algorithm to determine which character set is in use and how it
   should be displayed. It is expected that network management station
   applications will rely on human configuration to choose which
   character set in which to interpret InternationalDisplayString
   objects, much like an application running locally on that host.

7.  Security Considerations

   There are a number of management objects defined in this MIB that
   have a MAX-ACCESS clause of read-write.  Such objects may be
   considered sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments.  The
   support for SET operations in a non-secure environment without proper
   protection can have a negative effect on system operations.

   There are a number of managed objects in this MIB that may contain
   sensitive information. The objects in the Running Software Group list
   information about running software on the system (including the
   operating system software and version).  Some may wish not to
   disclose to others what software they are running. Further, an
   inventory of the running software and versions may be helpful to an
   attacker who hopes to exploit software bugs in certain applications.
   The same issues exist for the objects in the Installed Software
   Group.

   It is thus important to control even GET access to these objects and
   possibly to even encrypt the values of these object when sending them
   over the network via SNMP.  Not all versions of SNMP provide features
   for such a secure environment.

   SNMPv1 by itself is not a secure environment.  Even if the network
   itself is secure (for example by using IPSec), even then, there is no
   control as to who on the secure network is allowed to access and
   GET/SET (read/change/create/delete) the objects in this MIB.

   It is recommended that the implementers consider the security
   features as provided by the SNMPv3 framework.  Specifically, the use
   of the User-based Security Model RFC 2574 [RFC2574] and the View-
   based Access Control Model RFC 2575 [RFC2575] is recommended.

RFC 2790                   Host Resources MIB                 March 2000


   It is then a customer/user responsibility to ensure that the SNMP
   entity giving access to an instance of this MIB, is properly
   configured to give access to the objects only to those principals
   (users) that have legitimate rights to indeed GET or SET
   (change/create/delete) them.
