IANA-MALLOC-MIB by vendor IANA

IANA-MALLOC-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 module defines the IANAscopeSource and
            IANAmallocRangeSource textual conventions for use in MIBs
            which need to identify ways of learning multicast scope and
            range information.

            Any additions or changes to the contents of this MIB module
            require either publication of an RFC, or Designated Expert
            Review as defined in the Guidelines for Writing IANA
            Considerations Section document.  The Designated Expert will
            be selected by the IESG Area Director(s) of the Transport
            Area."
