CTRON-TX-QUEUE-ARBITRATION-MIB by vendor Enterasys Networks Inc

CTRON-TX-QUEUE-ARBITRATION-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
      "Indicates the transmit queue port group to which the interface
       claims membership.  The specific interface is indicated
       by the instancing information."

    DESCRIPTION
      "The number of transmit queues for each port in this port group."
    ::= { ctTxQArbEntry 2 }
 
ctTxQArbNumSlices OBJECT-TYPE
    SYNTAX INTEGER
    ACCESS read-only
    STATUS mandatory
    DESCRIPTION
      "The number of 'slices' into which transmit resources are divided.  This
       determines the resolution with which transmit priority can be allocated
       to each of the transmit queues.  For example, if the number of slices
       is 16, then transmit resources may be allocated to each transmit queue
       in units of 1/16 (6.25% of the total).  The numbers of slices allocated
       to all queues must add up to the value of this object (i.e., 100%)."
    ::= { ctTxQArbEntry 3 }

ctTxQArbSetting OBJECT-TYPE
    SYNTAX OCTET STRING
    ACCESS read-write
    STATUS mandatory
    DESCRIPTION
      "The approximate percentage of a port's transmit resources to
       be allocated to each transmit queue.  This allows for fine-tuning
       of the 'strict priority' configuration.

       Under strict priority, the highest queue (ctTxQArbNumQueues - 1)
       has the highest priority, followed by (ctTxQArbNumQueues - 2), etc.
       Queue 0 always has the lowest priority.  All entries in a higher
       priority queue will be transmitted before any entries from the lower
       priority queues.  This object allows the modification of the strict 
       priority scheme so that lower priority queues can be guaranteed some
       access to the transmitter.

       This object is an octet string in which the number of octets corresponds
       to the number of transmit queues for each port in this port group,
       as indicated by ctTxQArbNumQueues.  The value of the first octet 
       represents the number of 'slices' of transmit resources to allocate to 
       Queue 0, the second octet represents the number for Queue 1, and so
       forth.  The sum of all the octets in the octet string must add up to 
       the total number of slices available for the port.

       For example, on a port having 4 transmit queues and where transmit 
       resources are divided into 16 slices, writing an octet string of 
       {0x00, 0x04, 0x04, 0x08} would have the following effect:

           At least 50% of the frames transmitted are from Queue 3
           At least 25% of the frames transmitted are from Queue 2
           At least 25% of the frames transmitted are from Queue 1
           No frames will be transmitted from Queue 0 until Queues 1, 2 and 3
           are empty."
    ::= { ctTxQArbEntry 4 }
