Technical Summary This memo defines an SMIv2 MIB module for managing the Rapid Spanning Tree capability defined by the IEEE P802.1t and P802.1w amendments to IEEE Std 802.1D-1998 for bridging between Local Area Network (LAN) segments. The objects in this MIB are defined to apply both to transparent bridging and to bridges connected by subnetworks other than LAN segments. Working Group Summary The Bridge MIB Working Group discussed this document and approved its content in a Working Group Last Call process. All issues raised during the WG Last Call have been resolved, maintained in the RT system, and a summary of the resolutions was published to the mailing list for comment. The WG recommends that this document be forwarded to the IESG for consideration as a Proposed Standard. It is the intention of the WG that subsequent mib module work for IEEE 802.1 technologies will be done by the IEEE 802.1 WG. There are some concerns about the quality of work likely to result from SNMP non-experts, but the IETF is providing MIB Doctor review of their mib module work during the transition. Protocol Quality The document was reviewed in detail by John Flick, and discussed by several other MIB experts. A number of IEEE 802.1 WG members, including the vice chair, were involved in discussions. The discussions and clarifications resulted in editorial changes in the document. It is our belief that the document is at the appropriate quality for consideration as proposed standard. Bert Wijnen has reviewed the document for the IESG.
