RFC 4275            BGP-4 MIB Implementation Survey         January 2006

1.  Introduction

   This document provides a survey of BGP-4 v1 MIB [RFC4274]
   implementations.  After a brief summary, each response is listed.
   The authors make no claim as to the accuracy of the information
   provided.

   The following organizations reported having BGP-4 MIB
   implementations:  Cisco Systems, Redback Networks, and NextHop
   Technologies.

2.  Survey Summary

   This survey asked for information about the implementations of the
   BGP-4 [RFC4271] that support MIB agents [RFC1657] according to the
   BGP-4 v1 MIB [RFC4274].

   Two or more of the implementations of BGP-4 v1 MIB [RFC4274] each
   implement all the objects.  None of the implementations that
   responded to the survey implemented the read-write variables (Section
   2.2).  The two TRAPs as specified are not implemented by two
   implementations (Section 2.3).  The counters' initialized state is
   zeroed in all implementations, but a reset peer is only reset by the
   Redback implementation (Section 2.4).

   There are 3 agent implementations for the 3 surveyed (Section 2.5).
   The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) managers used to test
   the implementations are: Net-SNMP (www.net-snmp.org), Multi Router
   Traffic Grapher (www.mrtg.org), and the internal Cisco manager.

   No interoperability issues related to the Manager specification were
   found.
