Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   In particular, it describes managed objects for modeling the Link
   Management Protocol (LMP).

1.  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].

2.  Introduction

   Current work is under way in the IETF to specify a suite of protocols
   to be used as a common control plane and a separate common
   measurement plane.  Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) [RFC3471] and the Link
   Management Protocol [RFC4204] are key components of this
   standardization activity.  The primary purpose of LMP is to manage
   traffic engineering (TE) links.  Primary goals of LMP are the
   maintenance of the control channel connectivity, correlation of link
   properties, verification of data-bearing links, and detection and
   isolation of link faults.
