Nortel-Magellan-Passport-AlarmMIB 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.

        the card number of the card from which this alarm originated. 
        The low-order 24 bits contain a sequence number which increases each 
        time an alarm is generated. Thus, this id provides a simple way of 
        uniquely identifying an alarm as well as the order in which alarms 
        are generated on a card. For cross-card ordering, one 
	would have to look at the time stamp (see dateAndTime)."

   DESCRIPTION
      " A pointer to the RowStatus variable of the Logical Processor 
        the component generating the alarm is running on. A component
        generating an Alarm with `activeListStatus = set' can include
        this variable in the Alarm.  If the identified Logical Processor 
        generates a Hierarchical Clear Alarm, then it will clear the

        componentName field. "

-- The following notifications are defined. Note that the structure and content
-- of each notification is identical.

-- The notification types are defined (one for each type of Alarm severity)
-- to accomodate simple Trap monitoring tools which assign severity
-- to a Trap based on the Specific Trap Number as opposed to the value
-- of a variable bind in the trap.

-- A Passport alarm with severity = critical will be mapped into the
-- criticalAlarm notification.  A Passport alarm with severity = cleared
-- will be mapped into the clearedAlarm notification, etc.
-- Note that the Trap number corresponds to the severity variable bind's
-- enumerated value, with the exception of an indeterminateAlarm, which
-- has a number of 6, and a severity variable bind value of 0 to correspond
-- to the OSI-defined value.
