Status of this Memo

   This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the
   Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
   improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet
   Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state
   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   In particular, it defines objects for managing IEEE 802.3 10 and 100
   Mb/second baseband repeaters based on IEEE Std 802.3 Section 30, "10
   & 100 Mb/s Management," October 26, 1995.

1.  The SNMP Network Management Framework

   The SNMP Network Management Framework presently consists of three
   major components.  They are:

   o    the SMI, described in RFC 1902 [6] - the mechanisms used
        for describing and naming objects for the purpose of
        management.

   o    the MIB-II, STD 17, RFC 1213 [5] - the core set of
        managed objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

   o    the protocol, STD 15, RFC 1157 [10] and/or RFC 1905
        [9] - the protocol used for accessing managed information.

   Textual conventions are defined in RFC 1903 [7], and conformance
   statements are defined in RFC 1904 [8].

   The Framework permits new objects to be defined for the purpose of
   experimentation and evaluation.

1.1.  Object Definitions

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  Objects in the MIB are
   defined using the subset of Abstract Syntax Notation one (ASN.1)
   defined in the SMI.  In particular, each object type is named by an
   OBJECT IDENTIFIER, an administratively assigned name.  The object
   type together with an object instance serves to uniquely identify a
   specific instantiation of the object.  For human convenience, we
   often use a textual string, termed the descriptor, to refer to the
   object type.

2.  Overview

2.1.  Relationship to RFC 1516

   This MIB is intended as a superset of that defined by RFC 1516 [11],
   which will go to historic status.  This MIB includes all of the
   objects contained in that MIB, plus several new ones which provide
