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 a Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Label
   Switching Router (LSR).

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 for modeling a
   Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) [RFC3945] Label
   Switching Router (LSR).

   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 BCP 14, RFC 2119
   [RFC2119].

1.1.  Migration Strategy

   MPLS LSRs may be modeled and managed using the MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB
   module [RFC3813].

   LSRs may be migrated to be modeled and managed using the MIB modules
   in this document in order to migrate the LSRs to GMPLS support, or to
   take advantage of additional MIB objects defined in these MIB modules
   that are applicable to MPLS-TE.

Nadeau & Farrel             Standards Track                     [Page 2]
RFC 4803                     GMPLS LSR MIB                 February 2007

   The GMPLS LSR MIB module (GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB), defined in this
   document, extends the MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module [RFC3813] through a
   series of sparse augmentations of the MIB tables.  The only additions
   are for support of GMPLS or to support the increased complexity of
   MPLS and GMPLS systems.

   In order to migrate from MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB support to GMPLS-LSR-STD-
   MIB support, an implementation needs only to add support for the
   additional tables and objects defined in GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB.  The
   gmplsInterfaceSignalingCaps object allows an implementation to use
   the objects and tables of GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB without supporting the
   GMPLS protocols.

   The GMPLS Label MIB module (GMPLS-LABEL-STD-MIB), also defined in
   this document, allows labels to be configured and examined, and it
