Relational Database Management Systems MIB (RDBMSMIB) Charter


Mailing List Information

Description of Working Group

The Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) MIB Working Group is chartered to develop a set of managed objects for RDBMS implementations. These objects will be the minimum necessary to provide the ability to monitor and control these systems, providing fault, configuration, and performance management, and will be consistent with the SNMP framework and existing SNMP standards.

At its discretion, the working group may also define a small number of unsolicited notifications (traps) which carry these managed objects. However, the working group recognizes that traps are used sparingly in the SNMP framework.

The working group recognizes that the structure of RDBMS implementations varies widely, and shall take special care that its definitions reflect a generic and consistent architectural model of RDBMS management rather than the structure of particular RDBMS implementations, or operating system or platform-specific issues. However, because of the inherent architectural differences between different implementations, the working group may have to separate the MIB definitions common to all RDBMSs from the definitions which would apply only to some RDBMSs.
