Data Link Switching MIB (dlswmib) Charter

NOTE: This charter is accurate as of the 37th IETF Meeting in San Jose. It may now be out-of-date. (Consider this a "snapshot" of the working group from that meeting.) Up-to-date charters for all active working groups can be found elsewhere in this Web server.

Description of Working Group

The DLSw MIB Working Group is chartered to define a set of managed objects for devices that support Data Link Switching (DLSw) version 1. DLSw is a method for encapsulating SNA (System Network Architecture) or NetBIOS (Network Basic Input Output Services) traffic in TCP/IP. DLSw is intended to aid in the transport of SNA and NetBIOS traffic across WANs. The objects will be the minimum necessary to provide the ability to monitor and control DLSw devices, supporting fault isolation, configuration and performance management. The set of objects will be consistent with the SNMP framework and existing SNMP standards.

The working group will consider existing enterprise-specific MIB modules that define objects which support management of these devices.

The working group recognizes that managed objects for later versions of DLSw may need to be identified in the future. These objects are out of scope for the current (i.e., 1995) charter; however, once the working group completes its charter, a new charter identifying some or all of these components may be considered.
