1. Introduction

   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 for the General Switch
   Management Protocol (GSMP).

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

2. The SNMP Management Framework

   The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five major
   components:

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

   *  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].

   *  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]
      and RFC 1906 [RFC1906].  The third version of the message protocol
      is called SNMPv3 and is described in RFC 1906 [RFC1906], RFC 2572
      [RFC2572], and RFC 2574 [RFC2574].

   *  Protocol operations for accessing management information.  The
      first set of protocol operations and associated PDU formats are
      described in STD 15, RFC 1157 [RFC1157].  A second set of
      operations and associated PDU formats are described in 1905
      [RFC1905].
