Abstract

   This document defines a MIB module for the management of printer
   finishing device subunits.  The finishing device subunits applicable
   to this MIB are an integral part of the Printer System.  This MIB
   applies only to a Finisher Device that is connected to a Printer
   System.

1.  Introduction

   This document describes an SNMP Management Information Base (MIB) to
   provide for the management of in-line post-processing in a fashion
   that is currently provided for printers, using the Printer MIB
   [RFC3805].  The Printer Finishing MIB includes the following
   features:

   -  Provides the status of the finishing device.
   -  Queries and controls the features and configuration of the
      finishing device.
   -  Enables and disables the finishing processes.
   -  Allows unsolicited status from the finishing device.

   The Finisher MIB is defined as an extension of the Printer MIB
