 Definition of Managed Objects for the Neighborhood Discovery Protocol

Abstract

   This document replaces RFC 6779; it contains revisions and extensions
   to the original document.  It defines a portion of the Management
   Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in
   the Internet community.  In particular, it describes objects for
   configuring parameters of the Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP)
   process on a router.  The extensions described in this document add
   objects and values to support the NHDP optimization specified in RFC
   7466.  The MIB module defined in this document, denoted NHDP-MIB,
   also reports state, performance information, and notifications about
   NHDP.  This additional state and performance information is useful to
   troubleshoot problems and performance issues during neighbor
   discovery.
