CISCO-CAR-MIB file content

The SNMP protocol is used to for conveying information and commands between agents and managing entities. SNMP uses the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) as the transport protocol for passing data between managers and agents. The reasons for using UDP for SNMP are, firstly it has low overheads in comparison to TCP, which uses a 3-way hand shake for connection. Secondly, in congested networks, SNMP over TCP is a bad idea because TCP in order to maintain reliability will flood the network with retransmissions.

Management information (MIB) is represented as a collection of managed objects. These objects together form a virtual information base called MIB. An agent may implement many MIBs, but all agents must implement a particular MIB called MIB-II [16]. This standard defines variables for things such as interface statistics (interface speeds, MTU, octets sent, octets received, etc.) as well as various other things pertaining to the system itself (system location, system contact, etc.). The main goal of MIB-II is to provide general TCP/IP management information.

	DESCRIPTION
		"Cisco CAR MIB - Overview

    Cisco Weighted Rate-limit, known as Commited Access Rate (CAR),
    is a traffic control method which uses a set of rate limits
    to be applied to an interface for packet switching purpose.
    Each rate limit has a configurable action to be taken
    when a condition suffices.

    This MIB incorporates objects from the Cisco Rate-limit line interfaces.
    Its purpose is to provide Weighted Rate-Limit packet filtering information.
