CTRON-DCM-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.

            "A value which indicates whether this module supports
            a view chassis-wide of management information, accessed
            via chassis-ip. This MIB view is actually composed of
            information which is distributed between modules within
            the chassis but is able to be viewed as a collective whole.
            When a module is in standalone mode, it only supports
            original, module-level mibs. In distributed mode, the
            module will operate in conjunction with other distributed
            modules to share management information and present it to
            management clients through the chassis ip.
