              OSPF Version 2 Management Information Base

Status of This Memo

   This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the
   Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
   improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet
   Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state
   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

 Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets.
   In particular, it defines objects for managing version 2 of the Open
   Shortest Path First Routing Protocol.  Version 2 of the OSPF protocol
   is specific to the IPv4 address family.  Version 3 of the OSPF
   protocol is specific to the IPv6 address family.

   This memo obsoletes RFC 1850; however, it is designed to be backwards
   compatible.  The functional differences between this memo and RFC
   1850 are explained in Appendix B.
