Charter for Working Group

The Alert Management Working Group is chartered with defining and
developing techniques to manage the flow of asynchronously generated
information between a manager (NOC) and its remote managed entities.
The output of this group should be fully compatible with the letter and
spirit of SNMP (RFC 1067) and CMOT (RFC 1095).


Date Milestone
Done Develop, implement, and test protocols and mechanisms to prevent a managed entity from burdening a manager with an unreasonable amount of unexpected network management information. This will focus on controlling mechanisms once the information has been generated by a remote device.
Dec 1990 Write an RFC detailing the above. Since the implementation of these mechanisms is protocol dependent, the goal of this RFC would be to offer guidance only. It would request a status of ``optional''.
Done Write an RFC detailing the above, including examples of its conforment use with both SNMP traps and CMOT events.
May 1990 Develop, implement, and test mechanisms to prevent a managed entity from generating locally an excess of alerts to be controlled. This system will focus on how a protocol or MIB object might internally prevent itself from generating an unreasonable amount of information.
