A new Request for Comments is now available in online RFC libraries. RFC 3444 Title: On the Difference between Information Models and Data Models Author(s): A. Pras, J. Schoenwaelder Status: Informational Date: January 2003 Mailbox: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org Pages: 8 Characters: 18596 Updates/Obsoletes/SeeAlso: None I-D Tag: draft-irtf-nmrg-im-dm-02.txt URL: ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc3444.txt There has been ongoing confusion about the differences between Information Models and Data Models for defining managed objects in network management. This document explains the differences between these terms by analyzing how existing network management model specifications (from the IETF and other bodies such as the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) or the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF)) fit into the universe of Information Models and Data Models. This memo documents the main results of the 8th workshop of the Network Management Research Group (NMRG) of the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) hosted by the University of Texas at Austin.
