     Asynchronous Management Protocol Agent Application Data Model
                     draft-birrane-dtn-adm-agent-04

Abstract

   This document describes an Application Data Model (ADM) for an
   Asynchronous Management Protocol (AMP) Agent.  The AMP Agent
   represents a managed device in the Asynchronous Management
   Architecture.  This document is in compliance with the template
   provided by [I-D.birrane-dtn-adm].

1.  Introduction

   An Application Data Model (ADM) provides a guaranteed interface for
   the management of an application or protocol in accordance with the
   Asynchronous Management Architecture (AMA) defined in
   [I-D.birrane-dtn-ama].  The ADM described in this document complies
   with the ADM Template provided in [I-D.birrane-dtn-adm] as encoded
   using the JSON syntax.

   The AMP Agent ADM provides the set of information necessary to
   remotely manage agents in accordance with the Asynchronous Management
   Protocol (AMP) defined in [I-D.birrane-dtn-amp].  AMP provides a
   compact binary encoding of ADM objects and specifies a protocol for
   the exchange of those objects.

1.1.  Technical Notes

   o  This document describes Version 3.0 of the Agent ADM.

   o  The namespace associated with this ADM has not been finalized and,
      therefore, any namespace references and associated encodings are
      subject to change until the moderated namespace for this ADM has
      been published.

   o  Agent applications MAY choose to ignore the name, description, or
      other annotative information associated with the component
      definitions within this ADM where such items are only used to
      provide human-readable information or are otherwise not necessary
      to manage a device.

1.2.  Scope

   This ADM specifies those components of the Asynchronous Management
   Model (AMM) common to the management of any instance of any AMP
   Agent.
