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 to configure and/or
   monitor Multiprotocol Label Switching Layer-3 Virtual Private
   Networks on a Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switching
   Router (LSR) supporting this feature.

1.  Introduction

   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 to configure and/or
   monitor Multiprotocol Label Switching Layer-3 Virtual Private
   Networks on a Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switching
   Router (LSR) supporting this feature.

   This document adopts the definitions, acronyms, and mechanisms
   described in [RFC4364].  Unless otherwise stated, the mechanisms of
   [RFC4364] apply and will not be re-described here.

   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 [RFC2119].

2.  Terminology

   This document uses terminology from the document describing the MPLS
   architecture [RFC3031] and from the document describing MPLS Layer-3
   VPNs (L3VPN) [RFC4364], as well as the MPLS architecture [RFC3031].

   Throughout this document, the use of the terms "Provider Edge (PE)
   and Customer Edge (CE)" or "PE/CE" will be replaced by "PE" in all
   cases except when a network device is a CE when used in the carrier's
   carrier model.

3.  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
