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

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 Internet Protocol (IP) in an IP version independent manner.
   This memo obsoletes RFCs 2011, 2465, and 2466.

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 [9].

   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 [1], STD 58, RFC 2579 [2] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [3].

2.  Revision History

   One of the primary purposes of this revision of the IP MIB is to
   create a single set of objects to describe and manage IP modules in
   an IP version independent manner.  Where RFCs 2465 and 2466 created a
   set of objects independent from RFC 2011, this document merges those
   three documents into a single unified set of objects.  The
   ipSystemStatsTable and ipIfStatsTable tables are examples of updating
   objects to be independent of IP version.  Both of these tables
   contain counters to reflect IP traffic statistics that originated in
   much earlier MIBs and both include an IP address type in order to
