But it isn't true. The semantics of SNMP's SET command itself
are simply changing the value of a MIB object (attribute). If an
SNMP SET is going to have side effects, these *must* be specified
in the MIB definition of the object being SET.
The *protocol* operation that embodies the concept of an action is
(not surprisingly) CMIS/CMIP's M-ACTION operation.
