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 describes managed objects used for monitoring
   Differentiated Services (DS) Codepoint usage in packets which contain
   a DS field, utilizing the monitoring framework defined in the RMON-2
   (Remote Network Monitoring Management Version 2) MIB.

1.  The SNMP Network Management Framework

   The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five major
   components:

   o  An overall architecture, described in RFC 2571 [RFC2571].

   o  Mechanisms for describing and naming objects and events for the
      purpose of management.  The first version of this Structure of
      Management Information (SMI) is called SMIv1 and is described in
      STD 16, RFC 1155 [RFC1155], STD 16, RFC 1212 [RFC1212] and RFC
      1215 [RFC1215].  The second version, called SMIv2, is described in
      STD 58, RFC 2578 [RFC2578], RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and RFC 2580
      [RFC2580].

   o  Message protocols for transferring management information.  The
      first version of the SNMP message protocol is called SNMPv1 and is
      described in STD 15, RFC 1157 [RFC1157].  A second version of the
      SNMP message protocol, which is not an Internet standards track
      protocol, is called SNMPv2c and is described in RFC 1901 [RFC1901]
