Internet Draft               IPOVERIB TC MIB            November 2001

1. Abstract

   This memo describes Textual Conventions and OBJECT-IDENTITIES
   used for managing IPOVERIB networks.


2. Introduction

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information
   Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the
   Internet community. In particular, it defines Textual
   Conventions used in IETF IPOVERIB and IPOVERIB-related MIBs.

   Comments should be made directly to the IPOVERIB mailing list
   at ipoverib@ietf.org.

   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 RFC 2119, reference [RFC2119].

   For an introduction to the concepts of InfiniBand, see [INFINIV1].


3. The SNMP Management Framework

   The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five
   major components:

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

   -  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], STD 58, RFC
      2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [RFC2580].

   -  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].

Internet Draft               IPOVERIB TC MIB            November 2001

   -  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].

   -  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.

         "200111131200Z"  -- 13 November 2001 12:00:00 GMT
    DESCRIPTION
         "Separated TCs from InfiniBand Interface MIB. Added IANA
          experimental number for MIB. Made TC names more consistent.
          Added Intellectual Property and Acknowledgment sections."

    DESCRIPTION
         "Initial version of this MIB."
   ::= { infinibandMIB 1 }

-- The IANA has defined the InfiniBand MIB on the experimental branch.

infinibandMIB OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { experimental 117 }

-- Textual Conventions.

-- Note that the InfiniBand Architecture (IBA) Port and Virtual Lane
-- TCs are 1-based. Making the port TCs 1-based allows for IBA port
-- numbers to possibly parallel ifIndex numbering that is also defined
-- to start at 1. Also, if these TCs are used as indexes, the SNMP
-- convention is to start the index values at 1. The SNMP responder must
-- make appropriate conversions to IBA numbering scheme.

IbVirtualLane ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION
    DISPLAY-HINT "d"
    STATUS      current
    DESCRIPTION
       "Identifies a Virtual Lane (VL) instance on a given interface
        (i.e., IBA port). VLs provide a mechanism for creating multiple
        virtual links within a physical link. IBA defines VL 0 through
        VL 14 for data and VL 15 exclusively for subnet management.
        The actual data VLs that a port uses is configured by the
        Subnet Manager. The default data VL is always VL 0. Remember,
        the SNMP TC is 1-based."

5. Security Considerations

   This memo defines textual conventions and object identities
   for use in IPOVERIB MIB modules. Security issues for these MIB
   modules are addressed in the memos defining those modules.

   Anderson and Bill Strahm.
