The first branch describes managed objects at a set of ENRP servers. The first branch describes managed objects at a set of ENRP servers.
Any given ENRP server of this set will, at a certain moment in time, Any given ENRP server of this set will, at a certain moment in time,
have registration information for a set of active pools. Each of have registration information for a set of active pools. Each of
these pools in turn may have a list of pool elements that are these pools in turn may have a list of pool elements that are
registered under that pool. To allow this information to be registered under that pool. To allow this information to be
retrieved via SNMP, the ERNP server branch of the RSerPool MIB uses retrieved via SNMP, the ERNP server branch of the RSerPool MIB uses
the table-in-table technique described in [21]. Specifically, the the table-in-table technique described in [24]. Specifically, the
ENRP servers branch creates four levels of nesting, as indicated in ENRP servers branch creates four levels of nesting, as indicated in
the following diagram: the following diagram:
