      Definitions of Managed Objects for the DS3/E3 Interface Type

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 a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   In particular, it describes objects used for managing DS3 and E3
   interfaces.  This document is a companion to the documents that
   define Managed Objects for the DS0, DS1/E1/DS2/E2 and Synchronous
   Optical Network/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SONET/SDH) Interface
   Types.  This document obsoletes RFC 2496.

1.  The Internet Standard Management Framework

   For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current
   Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of
   RFC 3410 [RFC3410].

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  MIB objects are generally
   accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
   Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the
   Structure of Management Information (SMI).  This memo specifies a MIB
   module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD 58,
   RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580
   [RFC2580].

1.1.  Changes from RFC 2496

   The changes from [RFC2496] are the following:

      (1) The dsx3FracIfIndex SYNTAX matches the description range.

      (2) Reference was added to Circuit Identifier object.

      (3) Usage of ifStackTable section was updated.

      (4) Align the DESCRIPTION clauses of few statistic objects with
          the near end definition, the far end definition and with
          [RFC3593].

      (5) Add new value, dsx3M13, to dsx3LineType.
