1 The Network Management Framework

   The Internet-standard Network Management Framework consists of three
   components.  They are:

      RFC 1155 defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for describing and
      naming objects for the purpose of management.  STD 16, RFC 1212
      defines a more concise description mechanism, which is wholly
      consistent with the SMI.

RFC 2064                       Meter MIB                    January 1997


      RFC 1156 defines MIB-I, the core set of managed objects for the
      Internet suite of protocols.  STD 17, RFC 1213 [1] defines MIB-II,
      an evolution of MIB-I based on implementation experience and new
      operational requirements.

      STD 15, RFC 1157 defines the SNMP, the protocol used for network
      access to managed objects.

      RFC 1442 [2] defines the SMI for version 2 of the Simple Network
      Management Protocol.

      RFCs 1443 and 1444 [3,4] define Textual Conventions and
      Conformance Statements for version 2 of the Simple Network
      Management Protocol.

      RFC 1452 [5] describes how versions 1 and 2 of the Simple Network
      Management Protocol should coexist.

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

2 Objects

   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) [6]
   defined in the SMI. In particular, each object has a name, a syntax,
   and an encoding.  The name is an object identifier, an
   administratively assigned name, which specifies an object type.  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 OBJECT
   DESCRIPTOR, to also refer to the object type.

   The syntax of an object type defines the abstract data structure
   corresponding to that object type.  The ASN.1 language is used for
   this purpose.  However, the SMI [2] purposely restricts the ASN.1
   constructs which may be used.  These restrictions are explicitly made
   for simplicity.

   The encoding of an object type is simply how that object type is
   represented using the object type's syntax.  Implicitly tied to the
   notion of an object type's syntax and encoding is how the object type
   is represented when being transmitted on the network.

   The SMI specifies the use of the basic encoding rules of ASN.1 [7],
   subject to the additional requirements imposed by the SNMP.

2.1 Format of Definitions

   Section 4 contains contains the specification of all object types
   contained in this MIB module.  These object types are defined using
   the conventions defined in [2] and [3].

3 Overview

   Traffic Flow Measurement seeks to provide a well-defined method for
   gathering traffic flow information from networks and internetworks.
   The background for this is given in "Traffic Flow Measurement:
   Background" [8].  The Realtime Traffic Flow Measurement (rtfm)
   Working Group has produced a measurement architecture to achieve it;
   this is documented in "Traffic Flow Measurement:  Architecture" [9].
   The architecture defines three entities:

     - METERS, which observe network traffic flows and build up a
       table of flow data records for them,

     - METER REAERS, which collect traffic flow data from meters, and

     - MANAGERS, which oversee the operation of meters and meter readers.

   This memo defines the SNMP management information for a Traffic Flow
   Meter (TFM). It documents the earlier work of the Internet Accounting
   Working Group, and is intended to provide a starting point for the
   Realtime Traffic Flow Measurement Working Group.

3.1 Scope of Definitions, Textual Conventions

   All objects defined in this memo are registered in a single subtree
   within the mib-2 namespace [1,2], and are for use in network devices
   which may perform a PDU forwarding or monitoring function.  For these
   devices, the value of the ifSpecific variable in the MIB-II [1] has
   the OBJECT IDENTIFIER value:

   flowMIB OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::=  mib-2 40

   as defined below.

   The RTFM Meter MIB was first produced and tested using SNMPv1.  It
   has been converted into SNMPv2 following the guidelines in RFC 1452
   [5].

3.2 Usage of the MIB variables

   The MIB breaks into four parts - control, flows, rules and
   conformance statements.

   The rules implement the minumum set of packet-matching actions, as
   set out in the "Traffic Flow Measurment:  Architecture" document [9].
   In addition they provide for BASIC-style subroutines, allowing a
   network manager to dramatically reduce the number of rules required
   to monitor a big network.

   Traffic flows are identified by a set of attributes for each of its
   end-points.  Attributes include network addresses for each layer of
   the network protocol stack, and 'subscriber ids,' which may be used
   to identify an accountable entity for the flow.

   The conformance statements are set out as defined in [4].  They
   explain what must be implemented in a meter which claims to conform
   to this MIB.

   To retrieve flow data one could simply do a linear scan of the flow
   table.  This would certainly work, but would require a lot of
   protocol exchanges.  To reduce the overhead in retrieving flow data
   the flow table uses a TimeFilter variable, defined as a Textual
   Convention in the RMON2 MIB [10].  This, when used together with
   SNMPv2's GetBulk request, allows a meter reader to scan the flow
   table and upload a specified set of flow attributes for those rows
   which have changed since the last reading.

   As an alternative method of reading flow data, the MIB provides an
   index into the flow table called flowColumnActivityTable.  This is
   (logically) a three-dimensional array, subscripted by flow attribute,
   activity time and starting flow number.  This allows a meter reader
   to retrieve (in an opaque object) data for a column of the flow table
   with a minimum of SNMP overhead.  An attempt has been made to include
   a full ASN.1 definition of the flowColumnActivityData object.

   One aspect of data collection which needs emphasis is that all the
   MIB variables are set up to allow multiple independent colletors to
   work properly, i.e.  the flow table indexes are stateless.  An
   alternative approach would have been to 'snapshot' the flow table,
   which would mean that the meter readers would have to be
   synchronized.  The stateless approach does mean that two meter
   readers will never return exactly the same set of traffic counts, but
   over long periods (e.g.  15-minute collections over a day) the
   discrepancies are acceptable.  If one really needs a snapshot, this
   can be achieved by switching to an identical rule set with a
   different RuleSet number, hence asynchronous collections may be

   regarded as a useful generalisation of synchronised ones.

   The control variables are the minimum set required for a meter
   reader.  Their number has been whittled down as experience has been
   gained with the MIB implementation.  A few of them are 'general,'
   i.e.  they control the overall behaviour of the meter.  These are set
   by a single 'master' manager, and no other manager should attempt to
   change their values.  The decision as to which manager is the
   'master' must be made by the network operations personnel
   responsible; this MIB does not attempt to provide any support for
   interaction between managers.

   There are three other groups of control groups, arranged into tables
   in the same way as in the RMON MIB [10].  They are used as follows:

     - RULE SET INFO: Before attempting to download a rule table a manager
       must create a row in the flowRuleSetInfo with flowRuleInfoStatus
       set to 'createAndWait.'  When the rule set is ready the manager
       must set RuleSetInfo to 'active,' indicating that the rule set is
       ready for use.

     - METER READER INFO: Any meter reader wishing to collect data
       reliably for all flows should first create a row in the
       flowReaderInfoTable with flowReaderStatus set to 'active.'  It
       should write that row's flowReaderLastTime object each time it
       starts a collection pass through the flow table.  The meter will
       not recover a flow's memory until every meter reader holding a row
       in this table has collected that flow's data.

     - MANAGER INFO: Any manager wishing to download rule sets to the
       meter must create a row in the flowManagerInfo table with
       flowManagerStatus set to 'active.'.  Once it has a table row, the
       manager may set the control variables in its row so as to cause the
       meter to run any valid rule set held by the meter.

        value to sysUptime and set its PreviousTime value (below) to
        the old  LastTime.  This allows the meter to recover flows
        which have been inactive since PreviousTime, for these have
        been collected at least once.

        If the meter fails to write flowLastReadTime, e.g. by
        failing authentication in the meter's SNMP write community,
        collection may still proceed but the meter may not be able to
        recover inactive flows."

-- From time to time a meter reader may sweep the flow table so as

-- The Rule Table
--

-- This is an array of rule tables; the one in use is selected by
-- CurrentRuleSet.  To change the rule set the manager chooses a set
-- number which is not in use, downloads the new rule set there, then
-- writes the new set number into CurrentRuleSet.  Rule set 1 is the
-- default rule set, used by the meter on start-up.  Several rule sets
-- can be held in a meter so that the manager can change the rules
-- easily, for example with time of day.  Note that a manager may
-- not change the default rule set, nor the rules in its current rule
-- set!  See the 'Traffic Flow Measurement: Architecture' document [9]
-- for details of rules and how they are used.
