Technical Summary This document defines Management Information Base (MIB) objects to allow a network management protocol to be used to monitor and manage local iFCP gateway instances, including the configuration of iFCP sessions between gateways. This document updates, and obsoletes, RFC4369. Working Group Summary The WG process to create this document went very smoothly, in large part owing to the existing publication of RFC4369. Comments were constructive and were easily addressed with minor changes to the draft version. The document was well-received and Working Group consensus was easily reached. Document Quality The document is of high quality, and while written to support iFCP, has architectural relevance to other current Internet protocols supporting the SCSI family. The iFCP protocol, now largely historical, is deployed in numerous products. The MIB objects in the document are therefore expected to be relevant to iFCP management, as well as to provide a basis for additional related efforts. The area director is a MIB Doctor, and he found the module to be in good shape. The document went through an independent MIB Doctor review, and certain SMIv2 requirements were addressed. It passes libsmi syntax checks, id-nits, and RFC4181 guidelines. Personnel Document Shepherd: Tom Talpey (STORM WG co-chair), Responsible Area Director: David Harrington This document defines no new IANA registries. RFC Editor Note The authors of RFC 4369 are listed in the Authors' Addresses, but did not work on this update. They were added to ensure they got credit for the original published version of this document. They should not need to be contacted during auth48.
