The Internet-Standard Management Framework For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of RFC 3410 [RFC3410]. Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed the Management Information Base or MIB. MIB objects are generally accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the Structure of Management Information (SMI). This memo specifies a MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD 58, RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [RFC2580]. 2. Overview The RMON2 MIB defines objects that provide RMON analysis up to the application layer. Remote network monitoring devices, often called monitors or probes, are instruments that exist for the purpose of managing a network. Often, these remote probes are stand-alone devices and devote significant internal resources for the sole purpose of managing a network. An organization may employ many of these devices, one per Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 2]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 network segment, to manage its internet. In addition, these devices may be used for a network management service provider to access a client network, which is often geographically remote. The objects defined in this document are intended to serve as an interface between an RMON agent and an RMON management application and are not intended for direct manipulation by humans. While some users may tolerate the direct display of some of these objects, few will tolerate the complexity of manually manipulating objects to accomplish row creation. The management application should handle these functions. 2.1. Remote Network Management Goals o Offline Operation There are times when a management station will not be in constant contact with its remote monitoring devices. This sometimes occurs by design, in an attempt to lower communications costs (especially when communicating over a WAN or dialup link), or by accident, as network failures affect the communications between the management station and the probe. For this reason, this MIB allows a probe to be configured to perform diagnostics and to collect statistics continuously, even when communication with the management station may not be possible or efficient. The probe may then attempt to notify the management station when an exceptional condition occurs. Thus, even in circumstances where communication between the management station and probe is not continuous, fault, performance, and configuration information may be continuously accumulated and communicated to the management station conveniently and efficiently. o Proactive Monitoring Given the resources available on the monitor, it is potentially helpful for it to run diagnostics continuously and to log network performance. The monitor is always available at the onset of any failure. It can notify the management station of the failure and can store historical statistical information about the failure. This historical information can be played back by the management station in an attempt to perform further diagnosis of the cause of the problem. Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 3]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 o Problem Detection and Reporting The monitor can be configured to recognize conditions, most notably error conditions, and to check for them continuously. When one of these conditions occurs, the event may be logged, and management stations may be notified in a number of ways. o Value Added Data Because a remote monitoring device represents a network resource dedicated exclusively to network management functions, and because it is located directly on the monitored portion of the network, the remote network monitoring device has the opportunity to add significant value to the data it collects. For instance, by highlighting those hosts on the network that generate the most traffic or errors, the probe can give the management station precisely the information it needs to solve a class of problems. o Multiple Managers An organization may have multiple management stations for different units of the organization, for different functions (e.g., engineering and operations), and in order to provide disaster recovery. Because environments with multiple management stations are common, the remote network monitoring device has to deal with more than one management station, potentially using its resources concurrently. 2.2. Structure of MIB The objects are arranged into the following groups: - protocol directory - protocol distribution - address mapping - network layer host - network layer matrix - application layer host - application layer matrix - user history Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 4]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 - probe configuration These groups are the basic units of conformance. If a remote monitoring device implements a group, then it must implement all objects in that group. For example, a managed agent that implements the network layer matrix group must implement the nlMatrixSDTable and the nlMatrixDSTable. Implementations of this MIB must also implement the IF-MIB [RFC2863]. These groups are defined to provide a means of assigning object identifiers, and to provide a method for managed agents to know which objects they must implement. This document also contains AUGMENTing tables to extend some tables defined in the RMON MIB [RFC2819]. These extensions include the following: 1) Adding the DroppedFrames and LastCreateTime conventions to each table defined in the RMON MIB. 2) Augmenting the RMON filter table with a mechanism that allows filtering based on an offset from the beginning of a particular protocol, even if the protocol headers are of variable length. 3) Augmenting the RMON filter and capture status bits with additional bits for WAN media and generic media. These bits are defined here as follows: Bit Definition 6 For WAN media, this bit is set for packets coming from one direction and cleared for packets coming from the other direction. It is an implementation-specific matter as to which bit is assigned to which direction, but it must be consistent for all packets received by the agent. If the agent knows which end of the link is "local" and which end is "network", the bit should be set for packets from the "local" side and should be cleared for packets from the "network" side. 7 For any media, this bit is set for any packet with a physical layer error. This bit may be set in addition to other media-specific bits that denote the same condition. Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 5]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 8 For any media, this bit is set for any packet that is too short for the media. This bit may be set in addition to other media-specific bits that denote the same condition. 9 For any media, this bit is set for any packet that is too long for the media. This bit may be set in addition to other media-specific bits that denote the same condition. These enhancements are implemented by RMON-2 probes that also implement RMON and do not add any requirements to probes that are compliant to just RMON. 3. Control of Remote Network Monitoring Devices Due to the complex nature of the available functions in these devices, the functions often need user configuration. In many cases, the function requires that parameters be set up for a data collection operation. The operation can proceed only after these parameters are fully set up. Many functional groups in this MIB have one or more tables in which to set up control parameters, and one or more data tables in which to place the results of the operation. The control tables are typically read/write in nature, while the data tables are typically read-only. Because the parameters in the control table often describe resulting data in the data table, many of the parameters can be modified only when the control entry is not active. Thus, the method for modifying these parameters is to deactivate the entry, perform the SNMP Set operations to modify the entry, and then reactivate the entry. Deleting the control entry causes the deletion of any associated data entries, which also gives a convenient method for reclaiming the resources used by the associated data. Some objects in this MIB provide a mechanism to execute an action on the remote monitoring device. These objects may execute an action as a result of a change in the state of the object. For those objects in this MIB, a request to set an object to the same value as it currently holds would thus cause no action to occur. To facilitate control by multiple managers, resources have to be shared among the managers. These resources are typically the memory and computation resources that a function requires. Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 6]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 3.1. Resource Sharing among Multiple Management Stations When multiple management stations wish to use functions that compete for a finite amount of resources on a device, a method to facilitate this sharing of resources is required. Potential conflicts include the following: o Two management stations wish to use resources simultaneously that together would exceed the capability of the device. o A management station uses a significant amount of resources for a long period of time. o A management station uses resources and then crashes, forgetting to free the resources so that others may use them. The OwnerString mechanism is provided for each management station- initiated function in this MIB to avoid these conflicts and to help resolve them when they occur. Each function has a label identifying the initiator (owner) of the function. This label is set by the initiator to provide for the following possibilities: o A management station may recognize resources it owns and no longer needs. o A network operator can find the management station that owns the resource and negotiate for it to be freed. o A network operator may decide unilaterally to free resources another network operator has reserved. o Upon initialization, a management station may recognize resources it had reserved in the past. With this information, it may free the resources if it no longer needs them. Management stations and probes should support any format of the owner string dictated by the local policy of the organization. It is suggested that this name contain one or more of the following: IP address, management station name, network manager's name, location, or phone number. This information will help users share the resources more effectively. There is often default functionality that the device or the administrator of the probe (often the network administrator) wishes to set up. The resources associated with this functionality are then owned by the device itself or by the network administrator, and they are intended to be long-lived. In this case, the device or the administrator will set the relevant owner object to a string starting Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 7]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 with 'monitor'. Indiscriminate modification of the monitor-owned configuration by network management stations is discouraged. In fact, a network management station should only modify these objects under the direction of the administrator of the probe. Resources on a probe are scarce and are typically allocated when control rows are created by an application. Since many applications may be using a probe simultaneously, indiscriminate allocation of resources to particular applications is very likely to cause resource shortages in the probe. When a network management station wishes to utilize a function in a monitor, it is encouraged first to scan the control table of that function to find an instance with similar parameters to share. This is especially true for those instances owned by the monitor, which can be assumed to change infrequently. If a management station decides to share an instance owned by another management station, it should understand that the management station that owns the instance may indiscriminately modify or delete it. Note that a management application should have the most trust in a monitor-owned row, because it should be changed very infrequently. A row owned by the management application is less long-lived because a network administrator is more likely to reassign resources from a row that is in use by one user than those from a monitor-owned row that is potentially in use by many users. A row owned by another application would be even less long-lived because the other application may delete or modify that row completely at its discretion. 3.2. Row Addition among Multiple Management Stations The addition of new rows is achieved using the RowStatus Textual Convention [RFC2579]. In this MIB, rows are often added to a table in order to configure a function. This configuration usually involves parameters that control the operation of the function. The agent must check these parameters to make sure they are appropriate given the restrictions defined in this MIB, as well as any implementation-specific restrictions, such as lack of resources. The agent implementor may be confused as to when to check these parameters and when to signal to the management station that the parameters are invalid. There are two opportunities: o When the management station sets each parameter object. o When the management station sets the row status object to active. Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 8]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 If the latter option is chosen, it would be unclear to the management station which of the several parameters was invalid and caused the badValue error to be emitted. Thus, wherever possible, the implementor should choose the former option, as it will provide more information to the management station. A problem can arise when multiple management stations attempt to set configuration information simultaneously using SNMP. When this involves the addition of a new conceptual row in the same control table, the managers may collide, attempting to create the same entry. To guard against these collisions, each such control entry contains a status object with special semantics that help arbitrate among the managers. If an attempt is made with the row addition mechanism to create such a status object and that object already exists, an error is returned. When more than one manager simultaneously attempts to create the same conceptual row, only the first will succeed. The others will receive an error. In the RMON MIB [RFC2819], the EntryStatus textual convention was introduced to provide this mutual exclusion function. Since then, this function was added to the SNMP framework as the RowStatus textual convention. The RowStatus textual convention is used for the definition of all new tables. When a manager wishes to create a new control entry, it needs to choose an index for that row. It may choose this index in a variety of ways, hopefully minimizing the chances that the index is in use by another manager. If the index is in use, the mechanism mentioned previously will guard against collisions. Examples of schemes to choose index values include random selection or scanning the control table while looking for the first unused index. Because index values may be any valid value in the range and are chosen by the manager, the agent must allow a row to be created with any unused index value if it has the resources to create a new row. Some tables in this MIB reference other tables within this MIB. When creating or deleting entries in these tables, it is generally allowable for dangling references to exist. There is no defined order for creating or deleting entries in these tables. 4. Conventions The following conventions are used throughout the RMON MIB and its companion documents. Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 9]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 Good Packets Good packets are error-free packets that have a valid frame length. For example, on Ethernet, good packets are error-free packets that are between 64 octets and 1518 octets long. They follow the form defined in IEEE 802.3 section 3.2.all. Bad Packets Bad packets are packets that have proper framing and are therefore recognized as packets, but that contain errors within the packet or have an invalid length. For example, on Ethernet, bad packets have a valid preamble and SFD but have a bad CRC, or they are either shorter than 64 octets or longer than 1518 octets. 5. RMON 2 Conventions The following practices and conventions are introduced in the RMON 2 MIB. 5.1. Usage of the Term "Application Level" There are many cases in this MIB where the term "Application Level" is used to describe a class of protocols or a capability. This does not typically mean a protocol that is an OSI Layer 7 protocol. Rather, it is used to identify a class of protocols that is not limited to MAC-layer and network-layer protocols, but can also include transport, session, presentation, and application-layer protocols. 5.2. Protocol Directory and Limited Extensibility Every RMON 2 implementation will have the capability to parse certain types of packets and identify their protocol type at multiple levels. The protocol directory presents an inventory of protocol types the probe is capable of monitoring and allows the addition, deletion, and configuration of protocol types in this list. One concept deserves special attention: the "limited extensibility" of the protocol directory table. Using the RMON 2 model, protocols are detected by static software that has been written at implementation time. Therefore, as a matter of configuration, an implementation cannot suddenly learn how to parse new packet types. However, an implementation may be written such that the software knows where the demultiplexing field is for a particular protocol, and it can be written in such a way that the decoding of the next layer up is table driven. This works when the code has been written to accommodate it and can be extended no more than one level higher. Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 10]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 This extensibility is called "limited extensibility" to highlight these limitations. However, this can be a very useful tool. For example, suppose that an implementation has C code that understands how to decode IP packets on any of several ethernet encapsulations, and also knows how to interpret the IP protocol field to recognize UDP packets and how to decode the UDP port number fields. That implementation may be table driven so that among the many different UDP port numbers possible, it is configured to recognize 161 as SNMP, port 53 as DNS, and port 69 as TFTP. The limited extensibility of the protocol directory table would allow an SNMP operation to create an entry that would create an additional table mapping for UDP that would recognize UDP port 123 as NTP and begin counting such packets. This limited extensibility is an option that an implementation can choose to allow or disallow for any protocol that has child protocols. 5.3. Errors in Packets Packets with link-level errors are not counted anywhere in this MIB because most variables in this MIB require the decoding of the contents of the packet, which is meaningless if there is a link-level error. Packets in which protocol errors are detected are counted for all protocols below the layer in which the error was encountered. The implication of this is that packets in which errors are detected at the network-layer are not counted anywhere in this MIB, while packets with errors detected at the transport layer may have network-layer statistics counted. 6.

RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 -- Textual Conventions ZeroBasedCounter32 ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION STATUS current DESCRIPTION "This TC describes an object that counts events with the following semantics: objects of this type will be set to zero(0) on creation and will thereafter count appropriate events, wrapping back to zero(0) when the value 2^32 is reached. Provided that an application discovers the new object within the minimum time to wrap, it can use the initial value as a delta since it last polled the table of which this object is part. It is important for a management station to be aware of this minimum time and the actual time between polls, and to discard data if the actual time is too long or there is no defined minimum time. Typically, this TC is used in tables where the INDEX space is constantly changing and/or the TimeFilter mechanism is in use." SYNTAX Gauge32 LastCreateTime ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION STATUS current DESCRIPTION "This TC describes an object that stores the value of the sysUpTime object at the last time its entry was created. This can be used for polling applications to determine that an entry has been deleted and re-created between polls, causing an otherwise undetectable discontinuity in the data. If sysUpTime is reset to zero as a result of a re- initialization of the network management (sub)system, then the values of all LastCreateTime objects are also reset. However, after approximately 497 days without a re- initialization, the sysUpTime object will reach 2^^32-1 and then increment to zero; in this case, existing values of TimeStamp objects do not change. This can lead to ambiguities in the value of TimeStamp objects." SYNTAX TimeTicks TimeFilter ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION STATUS current DESCRIPTION "To be used for the index to a table. Allows an application to download only those rows changed since a particular time. Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 15]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 Note that this is not a history mechanism. Only current values of underlying objects are returned; saved instance values associated with particular values of sysUpTime are not. An entry is considered changed if the value of any object in the entry changes, if the row is created, or if any object in the entry is created or deleted. Note that deleted entries cannot be detected or downloaded. A time-filtered conceptual table is created by inserting a single object of SYNTAX TimeFilter as the first INDEX component in a copy of an existing basic conceptual table (i.e., any SEQUENCE without a TimeFilter INDEX component). Thus, for each conceptual entry 'I' in the basic table, there exists N conceptual entries in the time-filtered version, indexed N.I, where 'N' is equal to the value of sysUpTime. When an application retrieves conceptual instances from a time-filtered table, and an INDEX value is provided for the TimeFilter INDEX component 'N', the agent will only consider returning basic conceptual entries (e.g., 'fooColumn.N.I') if any column within the basic conceptual entry has changed since sysUpTime 'N'. If not, the basic conceptual entry will be ignored for the particular retrieval operation. When sysUpTime is equal to zero, this table shall be empty. One conceptual entry exists for each past value of sysUpTime, except that the whole table is purged should sysUpTime wrap. As an entry in a time-filtered table is updated (i.e., one of the columns in the basic conceptual table is changed), new conceptual entries are also created in the time-filtered version (which still shares the now updated object values with all other instances). The number of unique time-filtered instances that are created is determined by the value of sysUpTime at which the basic entry was last updated. One unique instance will exist for each value of sysUpTime at the last update time for the row. However, a new TimeFilter index instance is created for each new sysUpTime value. The TimeFilter index values not associated with entry updates are called duplicate time-filtered instances. After some deployment experience, it has been determined that a time-filtered table is more efficient if the agent stops a MIB walk operation by skipping over rows with a TimeFilter index value higher than the value in the received GetNext/GetBulk request. That is, instead of incrementing a TimeFilter index value, the agent will continue to the next Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 16]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 object or table. As a consequence, GetNext or GetBulk operations will provide only one pass through a time-filtered table. It is suggested that an agent implement a time-filtered table in this manner to improve performance and avoid a MIB walk getting stuck in time-filtered tables. It is, however, still acceptable for an agent to implement a time-filtered table in the traditional manner (i.e., every conceptual time-filtered instance is returned in GetNext and GetBulk PDU responses), and management applications must be able to deal with such traditional implementations. See the appendix for further discussion of this textual convention. The following example is provided to demonstrate TimeFilter behavior: Consider the following basic conceptual table, basicFooTable. (Note that the basic version of a time-filtered table may not actually be defined.) basicFooTable: basicFooTable ... INDEX { fooIndex } BasicFooEntry { fooIndex Integer32, fooCounts Counter32 } For this example, the basicFooTable contains two static conceptual entries (fooIndex equals '1' and '2'), created at time zero. It also contains one dynamic conceptual entry (fooIndex equals '3'), which is created at time '3' and deleted at time '7'. The time-filtered version of the basicFooTable could be defined as follows: FooTable: fooTable ... INDEX { fooTimeMark, fooIndex } FooEntry { Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 17]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 fooTimeMark TimeFilter, fooIndex Integer32, fooCounts Counter32 } Note that entries exist in the time-filtered conceptual table only if they actually exist in the underlying (basic) table. For this example, the fooTable will have three underlying basic entries (fooIndex == 1, 2, and 3), with the following activity (for sysUpTime equal 0 to 9): - fooEntry.N.1 is created at time '0' and most recently updated at time '6' to the value '5'. - fooEntry.N.2 is created at time '0' and most recently updated at time '8' to the value '9'. - fooEntry.N.3 is created at time '3', updated at time '5' to the value '17', and deleted at time '7'. The following tables show the values that would be returned for MIB walk operations with various TimeFilter values, done at different times. An application issues a retrieval request at time 'T', with a TimeFilter value, 'N' (typically set to a lower value, such as the value of sysUpTime at the last polling cycle). The following values would be returned in a MIB walk of fooCounts.N if T equals '0' and N equals '0': fooCounts.N.I Value ========================== fooCounts.0.1 0 fooCounts.0.2 0 Note that nothing is returned for fooCounts.0.3, since that entry does not exist at sysUpTime equals '0'. The following values would be returned in a full (traditional) MIB walk of fooCounts.N if T equals '3' and N equals '0': fooCounts.N.I Value ======================= fooCounts.0.1 0 fooCounts.0.2 0 fooCounts.0.3 0 fooCounts.1.3 0 fooCounts.2.3 0 fooCounts.3.3 0 Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 18]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 Note that there are no instances for T equals 1 or 2 for the first two values of N, as these entries did not change since they were created at time '0'. Note that the current value for 'fooCounts.N.3' is returned here, even for values of N less than '3' (when the entry was created). The agent only considers the current existence of an entry in the TimeFilter algorithm, not the time when the entry was created. Note that the instances 'fooCounts.0.3', 'fooCounts.1.3', and 'fooCounts.2.3' are duplicates and can be suppressed by the agent in a MIB walk.

RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 7. Security Considerations In order to implement this MIB, a probe must capture all packets on the locally-attached network, including packets between third parties. These packets are analyzed to collect network addresses, protocol usage information, and conversation statistics. Data of this nature may be considered sensitive in some environments. In such environments, the administrator may wish to restrict SNMP access to the probe. The usrHistoryGroup periodically samples the values of user-specified variables on the probe and stores them in another table. Since the access-control specified for a stored snapshot may be different from the access-control for the sampled variable, the agent MUST ensure that usrHistoryObjectVariable is not writable in MIB views that don't already have read access to the entire agent. Because the access control configuration can change over time, information could later be deemed sensitive that would still be accessible to this function. For this reason, an agent SHOULD check the access control on every sample. If an agent doesn't implement the latter check, there is potential for sensitive information to be revealed. A probe implementing this MIB is likely to also implement RMON [RFC2819], which includes functions for returning the contents of captured packets, potentially including sensitive user data or passwords. It is recommended that SNMP access to these functions be restricted. There are a number of management objects defined in this MIB that have a MAX-ACCESS clause of read-write and/or read-create. Such objects may be considered sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments. The support for SET operations in a non-secure environment without proper protection can have a negative effect on network operations. Some of the readable objects in this MIB module (i.e., objects with a MAX-ACCESS other than not-accessible) may be considered sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments. It is thus important to control even GET and/or NOTIFY access to these objects and possibly to even encrypt the values of these objects when sending them over the network via SNMP. SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 did not include adequate security. Even if the network itself is secure (for example by using IPSec), even then, there is no control as to who on the secure network is allowed to access and GET/SET (read/change/create/delete) the objects in this MIB module. Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 130]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 It is RECOMMENDED that implementers consider the security features as provided by the SNMPv3 framework (see [RFC3410], section 8), including full support for the SNMPv3 cryptographic mechanisms (for authentication and privacy). Further, deployment of SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 is NOT RECOMMENDED. Instead, it is RECOMMENDED to deploy SNMPv3 and to enable cryptographic security. It is then a customer/operator responsibility to ensure that the SNMP entity giving access to an instance of this MIB module is properly configured to give access to the objects only to those principals (users) that have legitimate rights to indeed GET or SET (change/create/delete) them. Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 131]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 8. Appendix - TimeFilter Implementation Notes 1) Theory of Operation The TimeFilter mechanism allows an NMS to reduce the number of SNMP transactions required for a 'table-update' operation, by retrieving only the rows that have changed since a specified time (usually the last poll time). Polling of tables that incorporate a 'TimeFilter' INDEX can be reduced to a theoretical minimum (if used correctly). It can be easily implemented by an agent in a way independent of the number of NMS applications using the same time-filtered table. Although the name 'TimeFilter' may imply that a history of change events is maintained by the agent, this is not the case. A time- filtered-value represents the current value of the object instance, not the 'saved' value at the time indicated by the TimeFilter INDEX value. Note that TimeFilter objects only appear in INDEX clauses (always not-accessible), so their value is never retrieved. By design, the actual value of a TimeFilter instance is not in itself meaningful (it's not a 'last-change-timestamp'). The TimeFilter is a boolean filtering function applied in internal Get* PDU processing. If the 'last-change-time' of the specified instance is less than the particular TimeFilter INDEX value, then the instance is considered 'not-present', and either it is skipped for GetNext and GetBulk PDUs, or a 'noSuchInstance' exception is returned for Get PDUs. For TimeFilter purposes: - a row is created when an accessible column is created within the row. - a column that is created or deleted causes the TimeFilter to update the time-stamp, only because the value of the column is changing (non-existent <-> some value). - a row is deleted when all accessible columns are deleted. This event is not detectable with TimeFilter, and deleted rows are not retrievable with SNMP. 1.1) Agent Implementation of a Time-Filtered Table In implementation, the time-filtered rows (one for each tick of sysUpTime) are only conceptual. The agent simply filters a real table based on: * the current value of sysUpTime, Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 132]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 * the TimeFilter value passed in the varbind, and * the last-update timestamp of each requested row (agent implementation requirement). For example, to implement a time-filtered table row (e.g., set of counters), an agent maintains a timestamp in a 32-bit storage location, initialized to zero. This is in addition to whatever instrumentation is needed for the set of counters. Each time one of the counters is updated, the current value of sysUpTime is recorded in the associated timestamp. If this is not possible or practical, then a background polling process must 'refresh' the timestamp by sampling counter values and comparing them to recorded samples. The timestamp update must occur within 5 seconds of the actual change event. When an agent receives a Get, GetNext, or GetBulk PDU requesting a time-filtered instance, after the agent has determined that the instance is within the specified MIB view, the following conceptual test is applied to determine if the object is returned or filtered: /* return TRUE if the object is present */ boolean time_filter_test ( TimeFilter last_modified_timestamp, TimeFilter index_value_in_pdu ) { if (last_modified_timestamp < index_value_in_pdu) return FALSE; else return TRUE; } The agent applies this function regardless of the lastActivationTime of the conceptual row in question. In other words, counter discontinuities are ignored (i.e., a conceptual row is deleted and then re-created later). An agent should consider an object instance 'changed' when it is created (either at restart time for scalars and static objects, or row-creation-time for dynamic tables). Note that using a timeFilter INDEX value of zero removes the filtering functionality, as the instance will always be 'present' according to the test above. After some deployment experience, it has been determined that a time-filtered table is more efficient to use if the agent stops a MIB walk operation after one time-filtered entry. That is, a GetNext or GetBulk operation will provide one pass through a given table (i.e., Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 133]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 the agent will continue to the next object or table) instead of incrementing a TimeMark INDEX value, even if there exist higher TimeMark values that are valid for the same conceptual row. It is acceptable for an agent to implement a time-filtered table in this manner or in the traditional manner (i.e., every conceptual time-filtered instance is returned in GetNext and GetBulk PDU responses). 1.2) NMS Implementation of a Time-Filtered Table The particular TimeFilter INDEX values used by an NMS reflect the polling interval of the NMS, relative to the particular agent's notion of sysUpTime. An NMS needs to maintain one timestamp variable per agent (initialized to zero) for an arbitrary group of time-filtered MIB objects that are gathered together in the same PDU. Each time the Get* PDU is sent, a request for sysUpTime is included. The retrieved sysUpTime value is used as the timeFilter value in the next polling cycle. If a polling sweep of a time-filtered group of objects requires more than one SNMP transaction, then the sysUpTime value retrieved in the first GetResponse PDU of the polling sweep is saved as the next timeFilter value. The actual last-update time of a given object is not indicated in the returned GetResponse instance identifier, but rather the timeFilter value passed in the Get*Request PDU is returned. A "time-filtered get-next/bulk-sweep", done once per polling cycle, is a series of GetNext or GetBulk transactions and is over when one of the following events occurs: 1) the TimeFilter index value returned in the GetResponse is different from the TimeFilter index value passed in the GetNext or GetBulk request. Counter values will still be returned beyond this point (until the last-change-time is reached), but most likely the same values will be returned. 2) the return PDU includes instances lexigraphically greater than the objects expected (i.e., same GetNext semantics as if the TimeFilter weren't there). 3) a noSuchName or other exception/error is returned. Note that the use of a time-filtered table in combination with a GetRequest PDU neutralizes any optimization that otherwise might be achieved with the TimeFilter. Either the current time-filtered Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 134]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 object-value is returned, or, if there is no time-filtered object- value instance, then a 'noSuchInstance' exception (SNMPv2c or SNMPv3) or 'noSuchName' error (SNMPv1) is returned. 2) TimeFilter Example The following example demonstrates how an NMS and Agent might use a table with a TimeFilter object in the INDEX. A static table is assumed to keep the example simple, but dynamic tables can also be supported. 2.1) General Assumptions fooEntry INDEX { fooTimeMark, fooIfIndex } FooEntry = SEQUENCE { fooTimeMark TimeFilter, fooIfIndex Integer32, fooCounts Counter32 } The NMS polls the fooTable every 15 seconds, and the baseline poll occurs when the agent has been up for 6 seconds, and when the NMS has been up for 10 seconds. There are 2 static rows in this table at system initialization (fooCounts.0.1 and fooCounts.0.2). Row 1 was updated as follows: SysUpTime fooCounts.*.1 value 500 1 900 2 2300 3 Row 2 was updated as follows: SysUpTime fooCounts.*.2 value 1100 1 1400 2 2.2) SNMP Transactions from NMS Perspective Time nms-1000: # NMS baseline poll -- get everything since last agent # restart - TimeFilter == 0 get-bulk(nonRptrs=1, maxReps=2, sysUpTime.0, fooCounts.0); Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 135]

Changes since RFC 2021 This version obsoletes the proposed-standard version of the RMON2 MIB (published as RFC 2021) by adding 2 new enumerations to the nlMatrixTopNControlRateBase object and 4 new enumerations to the alMatrixTopNControlRateBase object. These new enumerations support the creation of high capacity top N reports in the High Capacity RMON MIB [RFC3273]. Additionally, the following objects have been deprecated, as they have not had enough independent implementations to demonstrate interoperability to meet the requirements of a Draft Standard: probeDownloadFile probeDownloadTFTPServer probeDownloadAction probeDownloadStatus serialMode serialProtocol serialTimeout serialModemInitString serialModemHangUpString serialModemConnectResp serialModemNoConnectResp serialDialoutTimeout serialStatus serialConnectDestIpAddress serialConnectType serialConnectDialString serialConnectSwitchConnectSeq serialConnectSwitchDisconnectSeq serialConnectSwitchResetSeq serialConnectOwner serialConnectStatus netConfigIPAddress netConfigSubnetMask netConfigStatus netDefaultGateway tokenRingMLStats2DroppedFrames tokenRingMLStats2CreateTime tokenRingPStats2DroppedFrames Waldbusser Standards Track [Page 138]
RFC 4502 Remote Network Monitoring MIB May 2006 tokenRingPStats2CreateTime ringStationControl2DroppedFrames ringStationControl2CreateTime sourceRoutingStats2DroppedFrames sourceRoutingStats2CreateTime trapDestIndex trapDestCommunity trapDestProtocol trapDestAddress trapDestOwner trapDestStatus In addition, two corrections were made. The LastCreateTime Textual Convention had been defined with a base type of another textual convention, which isn't allowed in SMIv2. The definition has been modified to use TimeTicks as the base type. Further, the SerialConfigEntry SEQUENCE definition included sub- typing information that is not allowed in SMIv2. This information has been deleted. Ranges were added to a number of objects and textual-conventions to constrain their maximum (and sometimes minimum) sizes. The addition of these ranges documents existing practice for these objects. These objects are: ControlString protocolDirID protocolDirParameters addressMapNetworkAddress nlHostAddress nlMatrixSDSourceAddress nlMatrixSDDestAddress nlMatrixDSSourceAddress nlMatrixDSDestAddress nlMatrixTopNSourceAddress nlMatrixTopNDestAddress alHostEntry alMatrixSDEntry alMatrixDSEntry alMatrixTopNSourceAddress alMatrixTopNDestAddress Finally, the TimeFilter TC has been updated to encourage agent implementations that allow a MIB walk to behave well even when performed by an application that is not aware of the special TimeFilter semantics.
