Token Ring Remote Monitoring (trmon)
Charter Status: Concluded September, 1993 Chair(s): Michael Erlinger Description of Working Group: The Token Ring Remote Monitoring MIB Working Group is chartered to produce a new MIB specification that extends the facilities of the existing Remote Monitoring (RMON) MIB (RFC 1271) for use in monitoring IEEE 802.5 Token Ring networks. The Token Ring RMON MIB extensions will be developed in the same architectural framework as the existing Ethernet-based RMON MIB. The original RMON MIB architecture was designed with the intention of incorporating MIB extensions devoted to monitoring other network media types. This Token Ring activity is the first attempt at such integration. In creating the Token Ring Extensions, the working group will, wherever possible, conform to terminology and concepts defined by relevant IEEE standards. It may be that a MIB devoted to monitoring may need to expand on the IEEE objects and definitions. Such modifications will be accompanied by a detailed rationale. All work produced by the Token Ring Remote Monitoring Working Group will be consistent with the existing SNMP network management framework and standards.
