                    Asynchronous Management Protocol
                        draft-birrane-dtn-amp-05

Abstract

   This document describes a binary encoding of the Asynchronous
   Management Model (AMM) and a protocol for the exchange of these
   encoded items over a network.  This Asynchronous Management Protocol
   (AMP) does not require transport-layer sessions, operates over
   unidirectional links, and seeks to reduce the energy and compute
   power necessary for performing network management on resource
   constrained devices.
