SNA DLC Services MIB (snadlc) Charter
NOTE: This charter is accurate as of the 32nd IETF Meeting in Danvers. 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may now be out-of-date.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 SNA DLC Services MIB Working Group is chartered to define a set of
objects for the SDLC and LLC-2 data link controls for SNA
networks. These objects will be the minimum necessary to provide
the ability to monitor and control those devices, providing fault,
configuration, and performance management, and 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
group may choose to consider any work done by the IEEE in the
area of managed object definition for LLC-2. It will also make sure
that its work is aligned with the SNA NAU Services MIB Working Group,
due to the close relationship between the devices being worked on by
the two groups.
The working group recognizes that managed objects for other SNA data
link controls and related components (e.g., QLLC, System/370 Channel,
Data Link Switching, and ESCON) may need to be identified in the
future. These objects are out of scope for the current charter;
however, once the group completes its charter, a new charter
identifying some or all of these components may be considered.
Goals and Milestones
- Mailing list discussion of vendor proprietary MIBs.
- Post an Internet-Draft of the SNA DLC MIB.
- Submit the SNA DLC MIB to the IESG for consideration as a Proposed Standard.
