Technical Summary This document 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 related to the forwarding of Internet Protocol (IP) packets in an IP version-independent manner. It accomplishes this by utilizing the InetAddress TC to provide IP address-independence on the management objects. This allows a single MIB to provide the same level of management for IPv4 and IPv6. Working Group Summary There was strong WG consensus for this document in both the IPv6 working group and the IPv6 MIB design team. Protocol Quality This document has undergone significant review by management experts. In particular, Mike Heard performed a thorough MIB Doctor review on this MIB. It has been reviewed for the IESG by Thomas Narten.
