CISCO-ENTITY-EXT-MIB by vendor Cisco

CISCO-ENTITY-EXT-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
		"This MIB is an extension of the ENTITY-MIB
		 specified in RFC2737.

		 This MIB module contains  Cisco-defined  extensions 
		 to the  entityPhysicalTable to represent information
		 related to entities of class module(entPhysicalClass
		 = 'module') which have a Processor.

                 A processor module is defined as a physical entity
                 that has a CPU, RAM and NVRAM  so that
                 it can independently
                    - load a bootable image
                    - save configuration.
		 This module is the entry point for external
		 applications like SNMP Manager, CLI, FTP etc.

		 Line card is an interface card	 with at least a 
		 Processor and RAM. This might be referred to as 
		 Service Module in some cisco products.
		
		 A configuration register is  a 16 bit 
		 software register.
		 The configuration register is mainly used to 
		 check for instructions on where to find the Cisco 
		 Operating System software.
		 Some other functions of configuration register are:
		  - To select a boot source and default boot filename.
		  - To enable or disable the Break function.
		  - To control broadcast addresses.
		  - To set the console terminal baud rate.
		  - To load operating software from Flash memory.
		  - To allow us to manually boot the system using the 
		    boot command at the bootstrap program prompt.
		 
		 Booting is the process of initializing the
		 hardware and starting the Operating System."

	     would be exceeded.

        The first serial number string of the physical
        entity is represented in the value of corresponding 
        instance of the 'entPhysicalSerialNum' object.

        On the first instantiation of an physical entity, the value
        of this object is the correct vendor-assigned second 
        serial number, if this information is available to the agent. 

        If the second serial number is unknown or non-existent, then 
        the value of this object will be a zero-length string instead.

        Note that implementations which can correctly identify the
        second serial numbers of all installed physical entities do 
        not need to provide write access to this object. 
        Agents which cannot provide non-volatile storage for the 
        second serial number strings are not required to implement 
        write access for this object.

        Not every physical component will have a serial number, or
        even need one.  Physical entities for which the associated
        value of the entPhysicalIsFRU object is equal to 'false(2)'
        (e.g., the repeater ports within a repeater module), do not
        need their own unique serial number. An agent does not have
        to provide write access for such entities, and may return a
        zero-length string.

        If write access is implemented for an instance of
        'ceEntPhysicalSecondSerialNum', and a value is written into 
        the instance, the agent must retain the supplied value in the
        'ceEntPhysicalSecondSerialNum' instance associated with the 
        same physical entity for as long as that entity remains
        instantiated. This includes instantiations across all re-
        initializations/reboots of the network management system,
        including those which result in a change of the physical
        entity's entPhysicalIndex value."
