FW: Updating the MIB boilerplate
OK, I have seen a number of supportive statements for the
text (new MIB Boiler plate) below.
I have not heard any objections yet. If there are any,
please speak up ASAP. Sooner is better than later.
------------- proposed new boiler plate for MIBs -----------
1. The SNMP Management Framework
For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current
Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7
of RFC2570bis [rfc2570bis].
Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store,
termed the Management Information Base or MIB. MIB objects are
generally accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol
(SNMP). Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms
defined in the Structure of Management Information (SMI). This
memo specifies a MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which
is described in STD 58, RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579
[RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [RFC2580].
