    Management Information Base for the User Datagram Protocol (UDP)

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
   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

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 implementations
   of the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) in an IP version independent
   manner.  This memo obsoletes RFCs 2013 and 2454.

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].

2.  Overview

   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 implementations
   of the User Datagram Protocol (UDP), as defined in RFC 768 [RFC0768],
   in an IP version independent manner.

   The current UDP-MIB defined in this memo consists of one table and a
   group of scalars:

   o  The udp group of scalars reports parameters and statistics of a
      UDP protocol engine.  Two scalars, udpHCInDatagrams and
      udpHCOutDatagrams, have been added to this group since the
      publication of RFC 2013 [RFC2013] in order to provide high-
      capacity counters for fast networks.  Discontinuities in the
      values of the counters in this group are indicated by
      discontinuities in the value of the sysUpTime object, which is
      defined in RFC 3418 [RFC3418].

   o  The udpEndpointTable provides access to status information for all
      UDP endpoints handled by a UDP protocol engine.  The table
      provides for strictly listening endpoints, as with the historical
      udpTable, and also for "connected" UDP endpoints, which only
      accept packets from a given remote system.  It also reports
      identification of the operating system level processes that handle
      UDP connections.  Addresses and ports of UDP endpoints in this
      table are represented using the InetAddressType, InetAddress, and
      InetPortNumber textual conventions defined in RFC 4001 [RFC4001].
