     Definitions of Managed Objects for Routing Bridges (RBridges)

Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols.  In particular, it defines
   objects for managing a Routing Bridge (RBridge), also known as a
   TRILL Switch, based on the IETF TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of
   Lots of Links) protocol.

1.  Introduction

   This document describes a model for managing Routing Bridges
   (RBridges), also known as TRILL Switches, as defined in [RFC6325].
   RBridges provide optimal pair-wise forwarding without configuration
   using IS-IS routing and encapsulation of traffic.  RBridges are
   compatible with previous IEEE 802.1 customer bridges as well as IPv4
