Charter for Working Group
The Alert Management Working Group is chartered with defining and
developing techniques to manage the flow of asynchronously generated
information between a manager (NOC) and its remote managed entities.
The output of this group should be fully compatible with the letter and
spirit of SNMP (RFC 1067) and CMOT (RFC 1095).
|Done||Develop, implement, and test protocols and mechanisms to prevent a managed entity from burdening a manager with an unreasonable amount of unexpected network management information. This will focus on controlling mechanisms once the information has been generated by a remote device.|
|Dec 1990||Write an RFC detailing the above. Since the implementation of these mechanisms is protocol dependent, the goal of this RFC would be to offer guidance only. It would request a status of ``optional''.|
|Done||Write an RFC detailing the above, including examples of its conforment use with both SNMP traps and CMOT events.|
|May 1990||Develop, implement, and test mechanisms to prevent a managed entity from generating locally an excess of alerts to be controlled. This system will focus on how a protocol or MIB object might internally prevent itself from generating an unreasonable amount of information.|
