Technical Summary 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 objects used for managing multicast function, independent of the specific multicast protocol(s) in use. This document obsoletes RFC 2932. Working Group Summary There was strong support in the MBONED WG for the adoption of this document. There was a general consensus that this MIB addition was overdue. Protocol Quality This document is largely based on RFC2932 and will make it obsolete. There are many implementations of RFC2932 and there are implementations of earlier versions of this draft. Cisco Systems has implemented an earlier version of this draft and Data Connection Ltd has implemented a version of this draft. The document has been reviewed by MIB Doctors Keith McCloghrie and Bert Wijnen and by Area Director Dan Romascanu. Note to RFC Editor 1.
