       Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) Bootstrap Router MIB

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 document 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 used for
   managing the Bootstrap Router (BSR) mechanism for PIM (Protocol
   Independent Multicast).

RFC 5240                      PIM BSR MIB                      June 2008

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 used for managing the
   Bootstrap Router (BSR) mechanism for PIM [RFC4601], [RFC5059].

   This document was created by moving some of the PIM BSR-specific MIB
   tables from one of the earlier versions of PIM MIB [RFC5060].

2.  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].

3.  Conventions

   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 RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

4.  Overview

   This MIB module contains four tables.  The tables are:

   1.  The Candidate-RP Table, which contains one row for each multicast
       group address prefix for which the local router is configured to
       advertise itself as a Candidate-RP (C-RP).  This table exists on
       routers that are configured as Candidate-RP.

   2.  The Elected BSR RP-Set Table, which contains one row for each
       Group-to-RP mapping that was received in C-RP advertisements.
       This table exists on a router that is an elected BSR (E-BSR).

   3.  The Candidate-BSR Table, which contains one row for each
       Candidate-BSR configuration for the local router.  This table
       exists on routers that are configured as Candidate-BSR.

   4.  The Elected-BSR Table, which contains one row for each elected
       BSR.  This table exists on a router that is an elected BSR.

   This MIB module uses textual conventions defined in the INET-ADDRESS-
   MIB [RFC4001].
