scope:

This standard provides the following two types of information to the developers of layer-, sublayer-, or resource-specific management specifications:

a) Definition of common management information such as attributes, managed object classes, packages, behaviours, and encodings of information used by LAN/MAN Management.

b) Common procedures required for specification of LAN/MAN Management, such as relationships to other common management information specifications and methods for registering management information within IEEE 802 standards.

This standard provides assistance and guidance to the developers of LAN/MAN management specifications that will

- Reduce duplication of effort by identifying commonly useful definitions and procedures.

- Encourage consistency between such specifications.

- Encourage the development of such specifications in a manner that will ensure compatibility with LAN/MAN Management specifications (ISO/IEC DIS 15802-2, ISO/IEC 8802-3 Amendment 11, and ISO 7498 : 1984) and with ISO/IEC 9595 : 1991 and 9596-1 : 1991.

To this end, this standard specifies the following:

- A set of definitions of commonly useful managed object and attribute types that build upon the generic definitions contained in DMI.

- The use of the Structure of Management Information (SMI) standards (ISO/IEC 10165-1 : 1992, 10165-2 : 1992, and 10165-4 : 1992) as the basis for the definition of management information and managed objects in a LAN/MAN environment.

Procedures to be used in defining and registering management information within IEEE 802 LAN/ MAN standards.

An informative annex is also included with guidelines toward recommended common approaches to be used for the documentation of LAN/MAN Management specifications.

This standard does not constrain the development of layer-specific management specifications.

This standard is applicable to the development of IEEE 802 management specifications that define the following:

- Management information that is to be transferred or manipulated by means of management protocol, in particular, that which is specified in ISO/IEC 15802-2 and ISO/IEC 9596-1 : 1991.

- The managed objects to which that information relates.

NOTE-Although the target audience for this standard is developers of managed object definitions relevant to LAN/ MAN technologies, the information contained herein may also be of relevance to members of other communities.
