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]. It is the purpose of this document to define managed objects which describe the behavior of an SNMP entity, as defined in the SNMP architecture STD 62, [RFC3411]. 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 BCP 14, RFC 2119 [RFC2119]. 2.

This value is allocated within the SMI enterprises subtree (1.3.6.1.4.1) and provides an easy and unambiguous means for determining `what kind of box' is being managed. For example, if vendor `Flintstones, Inc.' was assigned the subtree 1.3.6.1.4.1.424242, it could assign the identifier 1.3.6.1.4.1.424242.1.1 to its `Fred Router'." ::= { system 2 } sysUpTime OBJECT-TYPE Presuhn, et al.

The value is a sum. Presuhn, et al. Standards Track [Page 5]
RFC 3418 MIB for SNMP December 2002 This sum initially takes the value zero. Then, for each layer, L, in the range 1 through 7, that this node performs transactions for, 2 raised to (L - 1) is added to the sum. For example, a node which performs only routing functions would have a value of 4 (2^(3-1)). In contrast, a node which is a host offering application services would have a value of 72 (2^(4-1) + 2^(7-1)). Note that in the context of the Internet suite of protocols, values should be calculated accordingly: layer functionality 1 physical (e.g., repeaters) 2 datalink/subnetwork (e.g., bridges) 3 internet (e.g., supports the IP) 4 end-to-end (e.g., supports the TCP) 7 applications (e.g., supports the SMTP) For systems including OSI protocols, layers 5 and 6 may also be counted." ::= { system 7 } -- object resource information -- -- a collection of objects which describe the SNMP entity's -- (statically and dynamically configurable) support of -- various MIB modules. sysORLastChange OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX TimeStamp MAX-ACCESS read-only STATUS current DESCRIPTION "The value of sysUpTime at the time of the most recent change in state or value of any instance of sysORID." ::= { system 8 } sysORTable OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX SEQUENCE OF SysOREntry MAX-ACCESS not-accessible STATUS current DESCRIPTION "The (conceptual) table listing the capabilities of the local SNMP application acting as a command responder with respect to various MIB modules.

Also, implementations which authenticate community-based SNMP messages using check(s) in addition to matching the community name (for example, by also checking whether the message originated from a transport address allowed to use a specified community name) MAY include in this value the number of messages which failed the additional check(s). It is strongly RECOMMENDED that Presuhn, et al. Standards Track [Page 8]

Some special thanks are in order to the following Working Group members: Randy Bush Jeffrey D. Case Mike Daniele Rob Frye Lauren Heintz Keith McCloghrie Russ Mundy David T. Perkins Randy Presuhn Aleksey Romanov Juergen Schoenwaelder Bert Wijnen This version of the document, edited by Randy Presuhn, was initially based on the work of a design team whose members were: Jeffrey D. Case Keith McCloghrie David T. Perkins Randy Presuhn Juergen Schoenwaelder The previous versions of this document, edited by Keith McCloghrie, was the result of significant work by four major contributors: Jeffrey D. Case Keith McCloghrie Marshall T. Rose Steven Waldbusser Presuhn, et al. Standards Track [Page 21]
RFC 3418 MIB for SNMP December 2002 Additionally, the contributions of the SNMPv2 Working Group to the previous versions are also acknowledged. In particular, a special thanks is extended for the contributions of: Alexander I. Alten Dave Arneson Uri Blumenthal Doug Book Kim Curran Jim Galvin Maria Greene Iain Hanson Dave Harrington Nguyen Hien Jeff Johnson Michael Kornegay Deirdre Kostick David Levi Daniel Mahoney Bob Natale Brian O'Keefe Andrew Pearson Dave Perkins Randy Presuhn Aleksey Romanov Shawn Routhier Jon Saperia Juergen Schoenwaelder Bob Stewart Kaj Tesink Glenn Waters Bert Wijnen 5. 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 network operations. 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) the objects in this MIB. Presuhn, et al. Standards Track [Page 22]
RFC 3418 MIB for SNMP December 2002 It is recommended that the implementors consider the security features as provided by the SNMPv3 framework. Specifically, the use of the User-based Security Model STD 62, RFC 3414 [RFC3414] and the View-based Access Control Model STD 62, RFC 3415 [RFC3415] is recommended. 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) them. 6.
