Internet-Draft              PCE-DISC-STD-MIB                October 2008


1.  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 describes objects used for managing Path
   Computation Elements Discovery.

   For an introduction to the concepts of PCE, see [RFC4655].


2.  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].


3.  Conventions

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL", when they appear in this document, are to be interpreted
   as described in BCP 14, RFC 2119 [RFC2119].


4.  Terminology

   The terminology used in this document is built on notions introduced
   and discussed in PCE WG documents.  The reader should be familiar
   with these documents

   Domain:
      any collection of network elements within a common sphere of
      address management or path computational responsibility.

   IGP Area:
      OSPF Area or ISIS level.

   PCC:

Internet-Draft              PCE-DISC-STD-MIB                October 2008


      Path Computation Client: any client application requesting a path
      computation to be performed by a Path Computation Element.

   PCE:
      Path Computation Element: an entity (component, application, or
      network node) that is capable of computing a network path or route
      based on a network graph, and applying computational constraints.


5.  Overview

   [RFC4655] describes the architecture for a PCE-based path computation
   model for MPLS and GMPLS TE LSPs.  The architecture allows the
   separation of PCE from PCC.  It requires that a PCC be aware of the
   location of one or more PCEs.  This relies on a communication
   protocol between PCC and PCE for automatic and dynamic PCE discovery.

   [RFC4674] defines the PCE discovery mechanism and information
   elements which are derived as an extension for OSPF in [RFC5089] and
   as an extension for ISIS in [RFC5089] .

   The current MIB module defines the objects the section "6.10.2.1.
   PCC MIB module " of [RFC4674] identifies as to be disclosed on the
   management interface of the PCC.


6.  Structure of the MIB Module

   This MIB module is arranged into groups.  Each group is organized as
   a set of related objects.  The overall structure and assignment of
   objects to their groups, and the intended purpose of each group, is
   shown below.

6.1.  The Discovery objects

   Objects of pceDiscoveryObjects provide general information on the
   PCEs discovered and on their status.

   This includes:
      - A control to disable the automatic discovery mechanism;
      - The number of known PCEs;
      - The number of discovered PCEs;
      - The pceDiscoveryTable which details information per PCE:
         - Addresses, discovery Mechanism type;
         - Discovery time, last activity time;
         - Congestion and congestion duration.

Internet-Draft              PCE-DISC-STD-MIB                October 2008


6.2.  PCEs capabilities objects

   These objects report on computation capabilities per PCE as defined
   in PCE-PATHSCOPE, PCE-DOMAINS and PCE-NEIG-DOMAINS information
   elements.

   Objects of pceDiscPathScopeTable collect the computation capabilities
   and preferences fo the PCEs discovered.

   Objects of pceDiscDomainTable list the domains for which the PCE
   discovered have topology visibility and path computation facilities.

   Objects of pceDiscNeighborDomainTable define domains toward which a
   PCE can compute path.

6.3.  PCEs options capabilities objects

   Objects of pceDiscOptionalCapabilitiesTable provides computation
   options per PCE as defined in The PCE-CAP-FLAGS information elements.

6.4.  PCEs Activity Objects

   The objects of pceDiscActivityTable monitor the activity of the
   discovery mechanism of each PCE to enable effective analysis of the
   operation of the protocols.

   pceDiscActivityTable reports on the activity of the discovery
   protocol per PCE:
   o  Modification of PCE discovery;
   o  The average and maximum rates of arrival, departure of PCE
      discovery information;
   o  The number of unacceptable and incomprehensible discovery
      information exchanges.

6.5.  The Notification Group

   This group defines notifications to inform of important events
   related to the monitoring of the PCE Discovery sessions such as the
   ending of all the sessions and abnormal rate of unacceptable
   messages.


7.  Relationship to Other MIB Modules

Internet-Draft              PCE-DISC-STD-MIB                October 2008


7.1.  Relationship to  IGP MIB modules

   PCE Discovery relies on existing protocols which have specialized MIB
   objects to monitor their own activities.  Consequently this document
   considers that monitoring underlying protocols in out of the scope of
   the current MIB module.

7.2.  MIB modules required for IMPORTS

   The following MIB module IMPORTS objects from SNMPv2-SMI [RFC2578],
   SNMPv2-TC [RFC2579], SNMPv2-CONF [RFC2580], and IF-MIB [RFC2863] and
   also REFERENCEs document RFC0768 [RFC0768]

9.  Security Considerations

   There are a number of management objects defined in this MIB module
   with a MAX-ACCESS clause of read-write and/or read-create.  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
   network operations.  These are the tables and objects and their
   sensitivity/vulnerability:
   o  on/off of discovery : Unauthorized changes to
      pceDiscoveryAdminStatus could result in a temporary interruption
      of the discovery ;

   Some of the readable objects in this MIB module (i.e., objects with a
   MAX-ACCESS other than not-accessible) may be considered sensitive or
   vulnerable in some network environments.  It is thus important to
   control even GET and/or NOTIFY access to these objects and possibly
   to even encrypt the values of these objects when sending them over
   the network via SNMP.  These are the tables and objects and their

   sensitivity/vulnerability:
   o  IP addresses of PCE.

   SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 did not include adequate security.
   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 module.

   It is RECOMMENDED that implementers consider the security features as
   provided by the SNMPv3 framework (see [RFC3410], section 8),
   including full support for the SNMPv3 cryptographic mechanisms (for
   authentication and privacy).

   Further, deployment of SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 is NOT
   RECOMMENDED.  Instead, it is RECOMMENDED to deploy SNMPv3 and to
   enable cryptographic security.  It is then a customer/operator
   responsibility to ensure that the SNMP entity giving access to an
   instance of this MIB module 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.
