1.  Introduction

   This document specifies how Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
   messages can be transmitted directly over IEEE 802 networks.  For a
   detailed overview of the documents that describe the Internet-
   Standard management framework, please refer to section 7 of RFC 3410
   [RFC3410].  This document supplements the standard SNMP transport
   mappings defined in RFC 3417 [RFC3417].

   This document obsoletes RFC 1089.

   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].

1.1.  Key Words

   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 RFC 2119 [RFC2119].
