1.  Introduction

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   In particular, it describes managed objects used for managing
   subnetworks which use the IEEE 802.5 Token Ring technology described
   in 802.5 Token Ring Access Method and Physical Layer Specifications,
   IEEE Standard 802.5-1989 [7].  This memo is a replacement for RFC
   1231.

2.  The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

   The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework consists of four major
   components.  They are:

      o    RFC 1442 [1] which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for
           describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

      o    STD 17, RFC 1213 [2] defines MIB-II, the core set of managed
           objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

      o    RFC 1445 [3] which defines the administrative and other
           architectural aspects of the framework.

      o    RFC 1448 [4] which defines the protocol used for network
           access to managed objects.

   The Framework permits new objects to be defined for the purpose of
   experimentation and evaluation.

2.1.  Object Definitions

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  Objects in the MIB are
   defined using the subset of Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1)
   defined in the SMI.  In particular, each object type is named by an
   OBJECT IDENTIFIER, an administratively assigned name.  The object
   type together with an object instance serves to uniquely identify a
   specific instantiation of the object.  For human convenience, we
   often use a textual string, termed the descriptor, to refer to the
   object type.

3.  Overview

   This memo defines three tables: the 802.5 Interface Table, which
   contains state and parameter information which is specific to 802.5
   interfaces, the 802.5 Statistics Table, which contains 802.5
   interface statistics, and the 802.5 Timer Table, which contains the
   values of 802.5-defined timers. A managed system will have one entry
   in the 802.5 Interface Table and one entry in the 802.5 Statistics
   Table for each of its 802.5 interfaces.  The 802.5 Timer Table is
   obsolete, but its definition has been retained in this memo for
   backward compatibility.

   This memo also defines OBJECT IDENTIFIERs, some to identify interface
   tests for use with the ifTestTable [6], and some to identify Token
   Ring interface Chip Sets.

3.1.  MAC Addresses

   All representations of MAC addresses in this MIB Module use the
   MacAddress textual convention [5] for which the address is in the
   "canonical" order defined by IEEE 802.1a, i.e., as if it were
   transmitted least significant bit first, even though 802.5 requires
   MAC addresses to be transmitted most significant bit first.

   16-bit addresses, if needed, are represented by setting their upper 4
   octets to all zeros, i.e., AAFF would be represented as 00000000AAFF.

3.2.  Relationship to RFC 1213

   When this MIB module is used in conjunction with the "old" (i.e.,
   pre-RFC 1573) interfaces group, the relationship between an 802.5
   interface and an interface in the context of the RFC 1213 is one-
   to-one.  That is, the value of an ifIndex object instance for an
   802.5 interface can be directly used to identify corresponding
   instances of the objects defined in this memo.

3.3.  Relationship to RFC 1573

   RFC 1573, the Interface MIB Evolution, requires that any MIB module
   which is an adjunct of the Interface MIB, clarify specific areas
   within the Interface MIB.  These areas were intentionally left vague
   in RFC 1573 to avoid over constraining the MIB module, thereby
   precluding management of certain media-types.

   Section 3.3 of RFC 1573 enumerates several areas which a media-
   specific MIB module must clarify.  Each of these areas is addressed
   in a following subsection.  The implementor is referred to RFC 1573
   in order to understand the general intent of these areas.

3.3.1.  Layering Model

   For the typical usage of this IEEE 802.5 MIB module, there will be no
   sub-layers "above" or "below" the 802.5 interface.  However, this MIB
   module does not preclude such layering.

3.3.2.  Virtual Circuits

   802.5 does not support virtual circuits.

3.3.3.  ifTestTable

   This MIB module defines two tests for 802.5 interfaces: Insertion and
   Loopback.  Implementation of these tests is not required.

3.3.4.  ifRcvAddressTable

   The ifRcvAddressTable is defined to contains all MAC addresses,
   unicast, multicast (group) and broadcast, for which an interface will
   receive packets.  For 802.5 interfaces, its use includes functional
   addresses. The format of the address, contained in
   ifRcvAddressAddress, is the same as for ifPhysAddress.

   For functional addresses on a particular 802.5 interface, only one
   ifRcvAddressTable entry is required.  That entry is the one for the
   address which has the functional address bit ANDed with the bit mask
   of all functional addresses for which the interface will accept
   frames.

3.3.5.  ifPhysAddress

   For an 802.5 interface, ifPhysAddress contains the interface's IEEE
   MAC address, stored as an octet string of length 6, in IEEE 802.1a
   "canonical" order, i.e., the Group Bit is positioned as the low-order
   bit (0x01) of the first octet.

3.3.6.  ifType

   The objects defined in this memo apply to each interface for which
   the ifType has the value:

                  iso88025-tokenRing(9)

APPENDIX A - Changes from RFC 1231

   This memo has the following differences from RFC 1231:

   (1)  This memo is formatted using the SNMPv2 SMI.

   (2)  The relationship of the "open" and "close" states of
        dot5Commands to the value of ifAdminStatus has been
        clarified.  In particular, the setting of one affects the
        value of the other.

   (3)  The relationship dot5RingSpeed and ifSpeed has been
        clarified.  In particular, ifSpeed indicates the current
        ring-speed; dot5RingSpeed indicates the ring-speed at the
        next insertion into the ring.  If the interface doesn't
        support changing ring-speed, then dot5RingSpeed can only be
        set to its current value.  When dot5RingSpeed has the value
        'unknown(1)', the ring-speed is to be set to the ring's
