Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP based internets.
   In particular, it defines two MIB modules for managing the new
   capabilities of MAC bridges defined by the IEEE 802.1D-1998 MAC
   Bridges and the IEEE 802.1Q-1998 Virtual LAN (VLAN) standards for
   bridging between Local Area Network (LAN) segments.  One MIB module
   defines objects for managing the 'Traffic Classes' and 'Enhanced
   Multicast Filtering' components of IEEE 802.1D-1998.  The other MIB
   module defines objects for managing IEEE 802.1Q VLANs.

   Provisions are made for support of transparent bridging.  Provisions
   are also made so that these objects apply to bridges connected by
   subnetworks other than LAN segments.  This memo also includes several
   MIB modules in a manner that is compliant to the SMIv2 [V2SMI].

   This memo supplements RFC 1493 [BRIDGEMIB] and (to a lesser extent)
   RFC 1525 [SBRIDGEMIB].
