Description of Working Group:

The Printer MIB Working Group is chartered to develop a set of managed objects for networked printers. 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 area of networked printers is quite diverse. However, the working group is specifically confined to defining managed objects that instrument critical information about:

- printer engine

- interpreters

- media

- input sources

- output destinations

- I/O interfaces

Further, the working group is specifically prohibited from defining managed objects that define instrumentation about:

- other marking technologies (e.g., those that mark onto film)

- fonts

- spooling

- print job management

Goals and Milestones:



Post revised Internet-Draft.



Submit final Internet-Draft to IESG for consideration as a Proposed Standard.



Meet at Seattle IETF to make final review of MIB.



Post first Internet-Draft; continue discussion.



Post Internet-Draft. Solicit implementation experience on RFC1759.



Post revised Internet-Draft.



Meet at Memphis IETF for final MIB review.
