      Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Management

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
   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

   This document defines a Management Information Base (MIB) module that
   contains textual conventions (TCs) to represent commonly used
   Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) management
   information.  The intent is that these textual conventions will be
   imported and used in GMPLS-related MIB modules that would otherwise
   define their own representations.

1.  Introduction

   This document defines a MIB module that contains textual conventions
   (TCs) for Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) networks.
   These textual conventions should be imported by MIB modules that
   manage GMPLS networks.

   This MIB module supplements the MIB module in [RFC3811] that defines
   textual conventions for Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
   management.  [RFC3811] may continue to be used without this MIB
   module in networks that support only MPLS.

   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 BCP 14, RFC 2119
   [RFC2119].

   For an introduction to the concepts of GMPLS, see [RFC3945].

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.  GMPLS Textual Conventions MIB Definitions

   This MIB module makes reference to the following documents:
