Description of Working Group:

This working group is chartered to review the MIBs produced by the madman group while in the Network Management Area (RFCs 1565, 1566, and 1567 which were produced in January, 1994).

The aim of this re-activation is to review and update these MIBs in the light of operational experience. This will lead to editorial and clarification changes, and updates driven by operational requirements based on experience.

There have been a number of commercial and research implementations of these MIBs. The MIBs have also been adopted by the Electronic Mail Association, who have made input to the MADMAN work.

Goals and Milestones:

Nov 95


Circulate proposed scope of change for each document.



Reactivate Working Group and solicit comments.

Dec 95


Review list of proposed changes at Dallas IETF meeting.

Jan 96


Post 3 Internet-Drafts, providing updates to RFC 1565, 1566, and 1567.

Mar 96


Submit updated versions of the MIBs to the IESG for consideration as either Draft Standards (if changes are only editorial) or Proposed Standard (if significant changes are made).
