Technical Summary
 
  This is a set of three inter-related documents, which between
  them contain 5 MIB modules.

   draft-ietf-ccamp-gmpls-tc-mib
     The GMPLS-TC-STD-MIB defines common Textual Conventions for
     use in the other two documents, and for potential future use
     in other MIB modules. These Textual Conventions supplement
     those defined for MPLS-TE in RFC 3811.


   draft-ietf-ccamp-gmpls-te-mib
     This document defines two MIB modules.

     GMPLS-TE-STD-MIB can be used to model and manage GMPLS
       LSPs in packet or non-packet networks. LSPs may be
       configured for signaling at ingress LSRs, and monitored
       at transit and egress LSRs.

       This MIB module extends the MPLS-TE MIB module,
       MPLS-TE-STD-MIB, defined in RFC 3812.

     IANA-GMPLS-TC-MIB exists to place certain enumerations
       within the control of IANA for flexible future-proofing

   draft-ietf-ccamp-gmpls-te-mib
     This document defines two MIB modules.

     GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB can be used to model and manage a GMPLS
       LSR. If signaling is used, the module is used to
       examine the cross-connects resources that have been put
       in place. If signaling is not used, the module can be
       used to manually configure the LSR to establish a data
       plane LSP.

       This MIB module extends the MPLS LSR MIB module,
       MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB, defined in RFC 3813.

     GMPLS-LABEL-STD-MIB is used to represent labels and their
       encoding for configuration and inspection, and for
       reference by other MIB modules. Thus, entries in the
       MIB module can be referenced from the GMPLS TE and LSR
       MIB modules.

       Additionally, the MPLS-TE LSR MIB (RFC 3813) includes
       the option to point to an external label definition
       using a rowPointer, and this can now reference entries
       in the GMPLS-LABEL-STD-MIB.
 
Working Group Summary

     The WG process did not identify any controversial
     issues.

     There was some discussion about indexing, but this was
     satisfactorily resolved.

     The decision to split IANA-GMPLS-TC-MIB out from
     GMPLS-TC-STD-MIB was taken quite late and as the result
     of discussions and review.
 
Protocol Quality
 
      Bill Fenner reviewed the spec for the IESG.

      Significant SNMP review came from Tom Petch and
      Joan Cucchiara. Bert Wijnen provided some helpful
      supervision of the review.
