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

Abstract

   This memo defines extensions to the Protocol Identifier Reference
   document for the identification of application verb information.  It
   updates the Protocol Identifier Reference document but does not
   obsolete any portion of that document.  In particular, it describes
   the algorithms required to identify protocol operations (verbs)
   within the protocol encapsulations managed with MIBs such as the
   Remote Network Monitoring MIB Version 2, RFC 2021.
