Abstract

   This document defines a basic set of managed objects for SNMP-based
   management of extended QoS features of Cable Modems (CMs) and Cable
   Modem Termination Systems (CMTSs) conforming to the Data over Cable
   System (DOCSIS) specifications versions 1.1 and 2.0.

1.  Introduction

   This memo is a product of the IP over Cable Data Network (IPCDN)
   working group within the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

1.1.  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 [15].

   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].

1.2.  Glossary

   Active QPS      Active QoS Parameter Set (QPS).  The set of QoS
                   parameters that describe the current level of service
                   provided to a Service Flow (SF).

   Active SF       Active Service Flow.  An SF with a non-empty Active
                   QPS.

   Admitted QPS    Admitted QoS Parameter Set.  The set of QoS
                   parameters that describe a level of service that the
                   Service Flow is not currently using, but that it is
