Protocol Action: Remote Network Monitoring Management Information Base for High Capacity Networks to Proposed Standard
The IESG has approved the Internet-Draft 'Remote Network Monitoring
Management Information Base for High Capacity Networks'
<draft-ietf-rmonmib-hcrmon-10.txt> as a Proposed Standard. This
document is the product of the Remote Network Monitoring Working
Group. The IESG contact persons are Bert Wijnen and Randy Bush.
This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base
(MIB) for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based
internets. In particular, it defines objects for managing
remote network monitoring devices for use on high speed networks.
This document contains a MIB Module that defines these new
objects and also contains definitions of some updated objects
from the RMON-MIB [RFC 2819] and the RMON2-MIB [RFC 2021].
Working Group Summary
The working group basically has had rough consensus on this
document as Proposed Standard for more than a year.
A problem during the process through IETF Last Call and IESG
approval turned out to be that this memo depends on updates
to a few enumerations in the RMON-MIB and the RMON2-MIB. This
caused confusion as to standard status of the original MIBs
(RFC 2819 and RFC 2021). The status of those MIBs does not
change because of these new enumerations that are needed for
The solution that has been adopted and approved is that this
memo defines the new enumerations and these new definitions
will go along with this memo on the standards track. By the
time that this memo reaches (full) standard, the original
MIB documents can be updated.
In the mean time, as a service to users of the MIB, the RFC
Editor will host the latest versions of the RMON1 and RMON2
During IETF Last Call, an issue was raised w.r.t. the
compliance statements in the latest versions of the RMON1
and RMON2 mibs (to be provided on the RFC-Editor web pages).
This issue has been resolved by updating the compliance
statement to make sure that old implementations are still
