Abstract

   This document, the Structure of Policy Provisioning Information
   (SPPI), defines the adapted subset of SNMP's Structure of Management
   Information (SMI) used to write Policy Information Base (PIB)
   modules.

   RFC 2748 defines the COPS protocol, and RFC 2749 describes how the
   COPS protocol is used to provide for the outsourcing of policy
   decisions for RSVP.  Another usage of the COPS protocol, for the
   provisioning of policy, is introduced in RFC 3084.  In this
   provisioning model, the policy information is viewed as a collection
   of Provisioning Classes (PRCs) and Provisioning Instances (PRIs)
   residing in a virtual information store, termed the Policy
   Information Base (PIB).  Collections of related Provisioning Classes
   are defined in a PIB module.
