2.  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 defines objects for monitoring and controlling
   network devices with HPR (High Performance Routing) capabilities.
   This memo identifies managed objects for the HPR protocol.

3.  The SNMP Network Management Framework

   The SNMP Network Management Framework consists of several components.
   For the purpose of this specification, the applicable components of
   the Framework are the SMI and related documents [1, 2, 3], which
   define the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the
   purpose of management.

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

4.  Overview

   This document identifies objects for monitoring the configuration and
   active characteristics of devices with HPR capabilities.  HPR is an
   enhancement to the Advanced Peer-to-Peer Network (APPN) architecture
   that provides fast data routing and improved session reliability.
   APPN is one of the protocols that can use the HPR transport
   mechanism.  See the SNANAU APPN MIB [4] for management of APPN and
   APPN use of the HPR transport.

   The HPR terms and overall architecture [5] are available at
   http://www.networking.ibm.com/app/aiwdoc/aiwsrc.htm.

   Automatic Network Routing (ANR) is a fast low-level routing
   technique.  Each node assigns a unique (within that node) ANR label
   for each out-bound link as it is activated.  The label size is
   defined by the ANR node, and nodes only need to know how to interpret
   their own labels.  The ANR string is a group of ANR labels encoded in
   a header in front of the message being sent.  At each hop the node
   strips off its own ANR label and forwards the message onto the link
   with that label.  The last label in the string is the Network
   Connection Endpoint (NCE), which identifies the component within the
   destination node that is to receive the message.

   Rapid Transport Protocol (RTP) is an end-to-end full duplex transport
   connection (pipe).  It provides for high-speed transport of data
   using ANR.  RTP is connection-oriented, and delivers data in correct
   order reliably.  Error recovery is done efficiently with selective
   retransmission of data.  An RTP path can be switched without
   disrupting the sessions using it.  An RTP path switch may be done
   automatically if a link in the path fails and another RTP path is
   available, or on demand to attempt to restore the optimal path.

   RTP performs flow/congestion control with the Adaptive Rate-Based
   (ARB) algorithm, described in [5]. ARB is done only at the endpoints
   of the RTP pipe, so intermediate hops are not involved.

   ARB regulates the flow of data over an RTP connection by adaptively
   changing the sender's rate based on feedback on the receiver's rate.
   It is designed to prevent congestion rather than react to it.

   In this document, we describe HPR managed objects.

   Highlights of the management functions supported by the HPR MIB
   module include the following:

   o    Identifying network connection endpoints (NCEs).

   o    Identifying how incoming packets are routed based on ANR labels.

   o    Monitoring the RTP connections between nodes.

   o    Ability to trigger an RTP path switch.  The MIB only supports a
        path switch with no specified path.  Some implementations may
        have a product-specific option to specify a new path.  The
        hprOperatorPathSwitchSupport object identifies this support.

   o    Historical information about RTP path switch attempts.

   This MIB module does not support:

   o    Configuration of HPR nodes.

   o    Protocol-specific uses of HPR (such as APPN).

   o    Traps.  The APPN MIB contains a trap for Alert conditions that
        may affect HPR resources.  The value for the affectedObject
        object contained in the alertTrap is determined by the
        implementation.  It may contain a VariablePointer from the HPR
        MIB.  The APPN/HPR Alerts are defined in [6].

4.1.  HPR MIB Structure

   Although HPR is an extension to APPN, the HPR MIB relies very little
   upon the APPN MIB.  The appnNodeCounterDisconTime object in the APPN
   MIB is used to detect discontinuities in HPR MIB counters.  The
   hprNodeCpName object in this MIB has the same value as the
   appnNodeCpName object in the APPN MIB.

   The HPR MIB module contains the following collections of objects:

   o    hprGlobal - general HPR objects.

   o    hprAnrRouting - objects related to the ANR routing table.

   o    hprTransportUser - objects related to users of the HPR
        transport.

   o    hprRtp - objects related to the HPR Transport Tower.

   These are described below in more detail.

4.1.1.  hprGlobal group

   The hprGlobal group consists of general objects such as the APPN CP
   (control point) name of the HPR node and the level of support for
   operator-requested path switches.

4.1.2.  hprAnrRouting group

   The hprAnrRouting group consists objects to monitor and control the
   counting of ANR packets received and the following table:

   The hprAnrRoutingTable correlates incoming ANR labels to the outbound
   transmission group (TG) or local NCE to which incoming packet will be
   forwarded.  An entry defines the label type as identifying a local
   NCE or a TG, identifies the NCE or TG, and counts the number of
   packets received with the entry's ANR label.

4.1.3.  hprTransportUser group

   The hprTransportUser group consists of the following table:

   The hprNceTable identifies network connection endpoints and their
   function types.  The function type can be any combination of a CP,
   logical unit (LU), boundary function, and route setup.

4.1.4.  hprRtp group

   The hprRtp group consists of the following objects and tables:

   1) hprRtpGlobe

   These objects contain information about the number of RTP connection
   setups, and control of RTP counters.

   2) hprRtpTable

   This table contains one entry for each RTP connection.  The
   information includes local and remote NCE IDs and TCIDs (transport
   connection identifiers), timers, send rates, and statistics.  A path
   switch can be triggered by the hprRptPathSwitchTrigger object if the
   agent node supports it; however, a new path cannot be specified.

   3) hprRtpStatusTable

   This table contains statistics and historical information for RTP
   path switches attempts, including old and new ANR strings and Route
   Selection Control Vectors (RSCVs), why the path switch was initiated,
   and the result (successful or reason for failure).

-- *********************************************************************
-- The RTP Connection Status Table
--  This table contains statistics and historical information related to
--  both successful and unsuccessful RTP path switches.  This
--  information can be important for both trend analysis and problem
--  determination.
--
--  Note the terminology here:  when RTP is triggered to find a new path
--  for a connection, this initiates a 'path switch,' which will end up
--  being either successful or unsuccessful.  During this path switch,
--  RTP will make one or more 'path switch attempts,' which are attempts
--  to find a new path for the connection and switch the connection to
--  it.  This 'new' path may be the same path that the connection was
--  using before the path switch.
--
--  It is an implementation option how many entries to keep in this
--  table, and how long to retain any individual entry.

8.  Security Considerations

   In most cases, MIBs are not themselves security risks; if SNMP
   security is operating as intended, the use of a MIB to view
   information about a system, or to change some parameter at the
   system, is a tool, not a threat.

   None of the read-only objects in the HPR MIB reports a password, user
   data, or anything else that is particularly sensitive.  Some
   enterprises view their network configuration itself, as well as
   information about network usage and performance, as corporate assets;
   such enterprises may wish to restrict SNMP access to most of the
   objects in the MIB.

   One read-write object in the MIB can affect network operations:

   o    hprRtpPathSwitchTrigger:  Setting this object to 'switchPathNow'
        triggers an immediate path switch attempt.  An HPR path switch
        does not itself disrupt the SNA sessions using the RTP
        connection undergoing the path switch.  However, frequent path
        switches for many RTP connections can have an adverse impact on
        overall network performance.

        It is recommended that SNMP access to this object be restricted.

        Other read-write objects control the gathering of network
        management data; controlling access to these objects is less
        critical.
