|Publication Date:||1 April 1996|
This part of ISO/IEC ISP 12060 specifies the General management capabilities profile, AOM211, which is applicable to end systems operating in the Open Systems Interconnection (0%) environment. AOM211 specifies a combination of OS1 standards, which collectively provide General management capabilities. These capabilities include the ability to create and delete any managed object instance, retrieve and modify any attribute, report any event, and initiate any action. These capabilities further include a specific set of reporting services for object creation, object deletion, attribute value change, state change, relationship change, and alarm; and attribute modification and retrieval services for a specific set of state and relationship attributes and attribute groups.
AOM211 also specifies use of a combination of standards that collectively provide the Common Management Information Service required by this part of ISO/IEC ISP 12060.
The support of the complete set of operation and notification services and the management attributes does not imply that all these features shall be used in all instances of communications. The selection of the features depends on the requirements of the MIS-users.
The definitions and conventions used in this part of ISO/IEC ISP 12060 are specified in ISO/IEC ISP 12059-0, Common definitions for management function profiles.
AOM211 is applicable in an environment in which end systems are able to take a manager role, an agent role or both. A system acting in the role of a manager is capable of requesting the specified set of operations upon any managed object which is in the system acting in the role of the agent, and receiving notifications which are generated by managed objects in the system acting in the tiole of the agent.
The specification of the managed objects receiving operations and generating notifications are outside the scope of this profile.
Figure 1 illustrates only one of those configurations, one in which one system is acting in a manager role and a further system is acting in the agent role.
The roles of manager and agent may be determined in advance, for the duration of an association or the duration of a single management interaction. The application contest is defined in Systems Management Overview (ISO/lEC 10040).
NOTE -Negotiation of functional units is optional
AOM211 includes by reference the subset of the Enhanced Management Communications profile (AOM12) that is required to support the above services.
NOTE - Refer to the description of AOM12 for further information about the communications support including specification of the protocol stack.
An end system implementing AOM211 can inter-work with an end system implementing the same profile in a complementary role. An end system implementing this profile can also inter work with an end system implementing profiles AOM2 12 (Alarm reporting and state management capabilities), or AOM2 13 (Alarm Reporting Capabilities), in a complementary role, in the mode of operation specified by those profiles. A system implementing the Enhanced Management Communications profile (AOM12) will be compatible with the communications aspects of AOM211.
