                   Definitions of Managed Objects for
             Multicast over UNI 3.0/3.1 based ATM Networks

Status of this Memo

   This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the
   Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
   improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet
   Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state
   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   In particular, it describes managed objects for IP hosts and routers
   that use a Multicast Address Resolution Server (MARS) to support IP
   multicast over ATM, as described in 'Support for Multicast over UNI
   3.0/3.1 based ATM Networks' [1].

   This memo specifies a MIB module in a manner that is both compliant
   to the SNMPv2 SMI, and semantically identical to the peer SNMPv1
   definitions.

   This memo does not specify a standard for the Internet community.

1.  The SNMP Network Management Framework

   The SNMP Network Management Framework presently consists of these
   components.  They are:

   o    the SMI, described in RFC 1902 [2] - the mechanisms used for
        describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

   o    the Textual Conventions, described in RFC 1903 [3] for SNMPv2.

   o    the Conformance Statements, described in RFC 1904 [4] for
        SNMPv2.

   o    the Simple Network Management Protocol, described in
        RFC 1157 [5].

   o    the Protocol Operations, described in RFC 1905 [6] for
        SNMPv2.

   o    the MIB-II, STD 17, RFC 1213 [7] - the core set of managed
        objects for the Internet suite of protocols for SNMPv2.

   The Framework permits new objects to be defined for the purpose of
   experimentation and evaluation.

1.1.  Object Definitions

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  Objects in the MIB are
   defined using the subset of Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1)
   defined in the SMI.  In particular, each object type is named by an
   OBJECT IDENTIFIER, an administratively assigned name.  The object
   type together with an object instance serves to uniquely identify a
   specific instantiation of the object.  For human convenience, we
   often use a textual string, termed the descriptor, to also refer to
   the object type.

2.  Overview

   This MARS MIB is designed to define managed objects that can be used
   to manage the MARS clients, servers, and the multicast servers (MCS),
   as described in the RFC2022[1].  The MIB is supposed to be used on a
   system where one or more MARS clients are running, or where one or
   more MARS servers are running, or where one or more MARS multicast
   servers are running.

   An understanding of MARS, as defined in [1] is assumed in this MIB
   module definition. However, the following terms are used frequently
   and are included here for reference:

   Multicast Group

   A group of endpoints that communicate with each other such that
   packets sent from one endpoint are received by all other members of
