Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   In particular, it describes two MIB modules that will be used by
   other MIB modules for monitoring and/or configuring Layer 2 and Layer
   3 Virtual Private Networks that support multicast.

1.  Introduction

   In BGP/MPLS Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), the Border Gateway
   Protocol (BGP) is used for distributing routes and Multiprotocol
   Label Switching (MPLS) is used for forwarding packets across service
   provider networks.

   The procedures for supporting multicast in a BGP/MPLS Layer 3 (L3)
   VPN are specified in [RFC6513].  The procedures for supporting
   multicast in a BGP/MPLS Layer 2 (L2) VPN are specified in [RFC7117].
   Throughout this document, we will use the term "L2L3VpnMCast network"
   to mean a BGP/MPLS L2 and L3 VPN that supports multicast.

   L2L3VpnMCast networks use various transport mechanisms for forwarding
   a packet to all or a subset of Provider Edge (PE) routers across
   service provider networks.  These transport mechanisms are abstracted
   as provider tunnels (P-tunnels).  The type of P-tunnel indicates the
   type of tunneling technology used to establish the P-tunnel.  The
   syntax and semantics of a Tunnel Identifier are determined by the
   corresponding P-tunnel type [RFC6514].  The P-tunnel type and
   P-tunnel identifier together identify a P-tunnel.

   A BGP attribute that specifies information of a P-tunnel is called a
   Provider Multicast Service Interface (PMSI) Tunnel attribute.  The
   PMSI Tunnel attribute is advertised/received by PEs in BGP auto-
   discovery (A-D) routes.  [RFC6514] defines the format of a PMSI
   Tunnel attribute.  The P-tunnel type and the P-tunnel identifier are
   included in the corresponding PMSI Tunnel attribute.
