     Asynchronous Management Protocol Agent Application Data Model
                     draft-birrane-dtn-adm-agent-01

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 ADM identifies the Primitive Values, Computed
   values, Reports, Controls, Macros, Literals, Operators, and meta-data
   associated with an Agent.  The information outlined in this document
   MUST be supported by any software claiming to act as a managed device
   within the AMP.
