Network Working Group K. McCloghrie, Editor Request for Comments: 2012 Cisco Systems Updates: 1213 November 1996 Category: Standards Track SNMPv2 Management Information Base for the Transmission Control Protocol using SMIv2 Status of this Memo This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. IESG Note: The IP, UDP, and TCP MIB modules currently support only IPv4. These three modules use the IpAddress type defined as an OCTET STRING of length 4 to represent the IPv4 32-bit internet addresses. (See RFC 1902, SMI for SNMPv2.) They do not support the new 128-bit IPv6 internet addresses. Table of Contents 1. Introduction ................................................ 1 2.

Introduction A management system contains: several (potentially many) nodes, each with a processing entity, termed an agent, which has access to management instrumentation; at least one management station; and, a management protocol, used to convey management information between the agents and management stations. Operations of the protocol are carried out under an administrative framework which defines authentication, authorization, access control, and privacy policies. McCloghrie Standards Track [Page 1]
RFC 2012 SNMPv2 MIB for TCP November 1996 Management stations execute management applications which monitor and control managed elements. Managed elements are devices such as hosts, routers, terminal servers, etc., which are monitored and controlled via access to their management information. Management information is viewed as a collection of managed objects, residing in a virtual information store, termed the Management Information Base (MIB). Collections of related objects are defined in MIB modules. These modules are written using a subset of OSI's Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) [1], termed the Structure of Management Information (SMI) [2]. This document is the MIB module which defines managed objects for managing implementations of the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) [3]. The managed objects in this MIB module were originally defined using the SNMPv1 framework as a part of MIB-II [4]. This document defines the same objects for TCP using the SNMPv2 framework. 2.

The only value which may be set by a management station is deleteTCB(12). Accordingly, it is appropriate for an agent to return a `badValue' response if a management station attempts to set this object to any other value. If a management station sets this object to the value deleteTCB(12), then this has the effect of deleting the TCB (as defined in RFC 793) of the corresponding connection on the managed node, resulting in immediate termination of the connection. As an implementation-specific option, a RST segment may be sent from the managed node to the other TCP endpoint (note however that RST segments are not sent reliably)." ::= { tcpConnEntry 1 } tcpConnLocalAddress OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX IpAddress MAX-ACCESS read-only STATUS current DESCRIPTION "The local IP address for this TCP connection.
