This memo is intended to provide a lock mechanism to SNMP for protecting SET operations from being interrupted by any other network management operations such as NETCONF <edit-config> or CLI writes. This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols. In particular, it extends LOCK-MIB defined in [I-D.meng-fan-lock-mib] to define objects for managing SNMP locks. The lock acquisition and release can be achieved through manipulating those objects.
