                       Energy Object Context MIB

Abstract

   This document defines a subset of a Management Information Base (MIB)
   for energy management of devices.  The module addresses device
   identification, context information, and the energy relationships
   between devices.

1.  Introduction

   The Energy Management (EMAN) standards provide a specification for
   Energy Management.  This document defines a subset of a Management
   Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols for
   Energy monitoring of network devices and devices attached to the
   network and possibly extending to devices in the industrial
   automation setting with a network interface.

   The focus of the MIB module specified in this document is on the
   identification of Energy Objects and reporting the context and
   relationships of Energy Objects as defined in [RFC7326].  The module
   addresses Energy Object identification, Energy Object context, and
   Energy Object relationships.

1.1.  Energy Management Document Overview

   This document specifies the Energy Object Context (ENERGY-OBJECT-
   CONTEXT-MIB) and IANA Energy Relationship (IANA-ENERGY-RELATION-MIB)
   modules.  The Energy Object Context MIB module specifies MIB objects
   for identification of Energy Objects, and reporting context and
   relationship of an Energy Object.  The IANA Energy Relationship MIB
   module specifies the first version of the IANA-maintained definitions
   of relationships between Energy Objects.
