I should have asked this when the Charter was out for review, but I somehow missed the opportunity. It is not too late however, to ask now for clarification. I am confused by the need to select or define a new protocol. Should the same protocol be used for packet selection, report, and export? Is this sampler MIB an SMIv2 MIB?
