SNA NAU Services MIB (SNANAU) Charter


Mailing List Information

Description of Working Group

The SNA NAU Services MIB Working Group is chartered to define a set of managed objects for PU type 2.1 LEN nodes and LU type 6.2 devices 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. It will also make sure that its work is aligned with the SNA DLC 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 components may need to be identified in the future. For example, APPN end and network nodes are not included. 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.
