Technical Summary

The iSNS protocol provides storage name service functionality on 
an IP network that is being used for iSCSI or iFCP storage. This 
draft provides a mechanism to monitor multiple iSNS Servers, 
including information about registered objects in an iSNS 

Working Group Summary

This MIB was originally undertaken as a MIB for monitoring and
configuration of both iSNS servers and clients, but ran into
significant complexity and structural issues. The scope of the
MIB was reduced to server monitoring in order, as that comprised
most of the interest in (and perceived value of) the MIB.

Protocol Quality

The document has been reviewed for the WG by Keith McCloghrie.


David Black was the document shepherd for this document. Bert
Wijnen was the MIB doctor. Lars Eggert has reviewed this
