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

Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   The document proposes an extension to the Remote Monitoring MIB, RFC
   2819.  In particular, it describes managed objects used for real-time
   application Quality of Service (QoS) monitoring.

1.  Introduction

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   In particular, it extends [RFC2819] with managed objects used for
   real-time application QoS monitoring.

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

2.  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].

3.  RAQMON Framework

   As outlined in [RFC4710], the RAQMON framework is based on three
   entities:

      - RAQMON Data Source (RDS)

      - RAQMON Report Collector (RRC)

      - RAQMON MIB Structure

   The RAQMON MIB describes information passed between RRCs and a RAQMON
   Application ("RAQMON manager").

4.  Structure of the RAQMON MIB

   The RAQMON MIB module is composed of three MIB groups:
   raqmonSession, raqmonException, and raqmonConfig.

   The raqmonSession MIB group incorporates the following tables:

      - The raqmonParticpantTable contains information about
        participants in open and closed (terminated) sessions, including
        parameters of the sessions they are involved in, aggregated
        since the beginning of the session.

      - The raqmonQosTable contains historical information about QoS
        during sessions.  The set of parameters represented in this
        table is more restricted, but it includes historical per-
        RAQMON-report information.

      - The raqmonParticpantAddrTable maps participant addresses into
