The goal of this document is to fill in missing pieces necessary
to enable an enterprise class storage network. One of the more
important features of an enterprise class storage network is
management; this document gives a framework MIB that will provide
an integrated management environment for the enterprise customer.
An enterprise class storage network is comprised of elements
(i.e., hubs, switches, converters, gateways, and HBAs) that are
developed by many different vendors. The large number of vendors

to enable interoperability among the various vendors involved in
the Fibre Channel marketplace.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with

up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
