The Internet Standard Management Framework For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of RFC 3410 [RFC3410]. Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed the Management Information Base or MIB. MIB objects are generally accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the Structure of Management Information (SMI). This memo specifies a MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD 58, RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [RFC2580]. 1.1. Changes from RFC 2496 The changes from [RFC2496] are the following: (1) The dsx3FracIfIndex SYNTAX matches the description range. (2) Reference was added to Circuit Identifier object. (3) Usage of ifStackTable section was updated. (4) Align the DESCRIPTION clauses of few statistic objects with the near end definition, the far end definition and with [RFC3593]. (5) Add new value, dsx3M13, to dsx3LineType. Nicklass Standards Track [Page 2]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 1.2. Changes from RFC 1407 The changes from RFC 1407 are the following: (1) The Fractional Table has been deprecated. (2) This document uses SMIv2. (3) Values are given for ifTable and ifXTable. (4) Example usage of ifStackTable is included. (5) dsx3IfIndex has been deprecated. (6) The definition of valid intervals has been clarified for the case where the agent proxied for other devices. In particular, the treatment of missing intervals has been clarified. (7) An inward loopback has been added. (8) Additional lineStatus bits have been added for Near End in Unavailable Signal State, Carrier Equipment Out of Service. (9) A read-write line Length object has been added. (10) Added a lineStatus last change, trap and enabler. (11) Textual Conventions for statistics objects have been used. (12) A new object, dsx3LoopbackStatus, has been introduced to reflect the loopbacks established on a DS3/E3 interface and the source to the requests. dsx3LoopbackConfig continues to be the desired loopback state while dsx3LoopbackStatus reflects the actual state. (13) A dual loopback has been added to allow the setting of an inward loopback and a line loopback at the same time. (14) An object has been added to indicated whether or not this is a channelized DS3/E3. (15) A new object has been added to indicate which DS1 is to set for remote loopback.

RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 1.3. Companion Documents This document is a companion to the documents that define Managed Objects for the DS0 [RFC2494], DS1/E1/DS2/E2 [RFC3895], and Synchronous Optical Network/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SONET/SDH) [RFC3592] Interface Types. 2. Overview These objects are used when the particular media being used to realize an interface is a DS3/E3 interface. At present, this applies to these values of the ifType variable in the Internet-standard MIB: ds3 (30) The DS3 definitions contained herein are based on the DS3 specifications in ANSI T1.102-1987 [ANSI-T1.102], ANSI T1.107-1988 [ANSI-T1.107], ANSI T1.107a-1990 [ANSI-T1.107a], and ANSI T1.404-1989 [ANSI-T1.404]. The E3 definitions contained herein are based on the E3 specifications in CCITT G.751 [CCITT-G.751] and ETSI T/NA(91)18 [ETSI-T/NA(91)18]. 2.1.

Usage Guidelines 2.2.1. Usage of ifStackTable The object dsx3IfIndex has been deprecated. This object previously allowed a very special proxy situation to exist for Routers and CSUs. This section now describes how to use ifStackTable to represent this relationship. The paragraphs discussing dsx3IfIndex and dsx3LineIndex have been preserved in Appendix A for informational purposes. The ifStackTable is used in the proxy case to represent the association between pairs of interfaces, e.g., this DS3 is attached to that DS3. This use is consistent with the use of the ifStackTable to show the association between various sub-layers of an interface. In both cases entire PDUs are exchanged between the interface pairs - in the case of a DS3, entire DS3 frames are exchanged; in the case of PPP and HDLC, entire HDLC frames are exchanged. This usage is not meant to suggest the use of the ifStackTable to represent Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) connections in general. External&Internal interface scenario: the SNMP Agent resides on a host external from the device supporting DS3/E3 interfaces (e.g., a router). The Agent represents both the host and the DS3/E3 device. Nicklass Standards Track [Page 5]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 Example: A shelf full of CSUs connected to a Router. An SNMP Agent residing on the router proxies for itself and the CSU. The router has also an Ethernet interface: +-----+ | | | | | | +---------------------+ |E | | 44.736 MBPS | ds3 M13 Line#A | ds3 C-bit Parity |t | R |---------------+ - - - - - - - - - +------> |h | | | | |e | O | 44.736 MBPS | ds3 M13 Line#B | ds3 C-bit Parity |r | |---------------+ - - - - - - - - - - +------> |n | U | | | |e | | 44.736 MBPS | ds3 M13 Line#C | ds3 C-bit Parity |t | T |---------------+ - - - -- -- - - - - +------> | | | | | |-----| E | 44.736 MBPS | ds3 M13 Line#D | ds3 C-bit Parity | | |---------------+ - - - - -- - - - - +------> | | R | |_____________________| | | | | +-----+ The assignment of the index values could for example be: ifIndex Description 1 Ethernet 2 Line#A Router 3 Line#B Router 4 Line#C Router 5 Line#D Router 6 Line#A CSU Router 7 Line#B CSU Router 8 Line#C CSU Router 9 Line#D CSU Router 10 Line#A CSU Network 11 Line#B CSU Network 12 Line#C CSU Network 13 Line#D CSU Network Nicklass Standards Track [Page 6]

Usage of Channelization for DS3, DS1, DS0 An example is given here to explain the channelization objects in the DS3, DS1, and DS0 MIBs to help the implementor use the objects correctly. Treatment of E3 and E1 would be similar, with the number of DS0s being different depending on the framing of the E1. Nicklass Standards Track [Page 7]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 Assume that a DS3 (with ifIndex 1) is Channelized into DS1s (without DS2s). The object dsx3Channelization is set to enabledDs1. When this object is set to enabledDS1, 28 ifEntries of type DS1 will be created by the agent. If dsx3Channelization is set to disabled, then the DS1s are destroyed. Assume the entries in the ifTable for the DS1s are created in channel order and the ifIndex values are 2 through 29. In the DS1 MIB, there will be an entry in the dsx1ChanMappingTable for each ds1. The entries will be as follows: dsx1ChanMappingTable Entries ifIndex dsx1Ds1ChannelNumber dsx1ChanMappedIfIndex 1 1 2 1 2 3 ...... 1 28 29 In addition, the DS1s are channelized into DS0s. The object dsx1Channelization is set to enabledDS0 for each DS1. There will be 24 DS0s in the ifTable for each DS1. Assume the entries in the ifTable are created in channel order and the ifIndex values for the DS0s in the first DS1 are 30 through 53. In the DS0 MIB [RFC2494], there will be an entry in the dsx0ChanMappingTable for each DS0. The entries will be as follows: dsx0ChanMappingTable Entries ifIndex dsx0Ds0ChannelNumber dsx0ChanMappedIfIndex 2 1 30 2 2 31 ...... 2 24 53 2.2.3. Usage of Channelization for DS3, DS2, DS1 An example is given here to explain the channelization objects in the DS3 and DS1 MIBs to help the implementor use the objects correctly. Assume that a DS3 (with ifIndex 1) is Channelized into DS2s. The object dsx3Channelization is set to enabledDs2. There will be 7 DS2s (ifType of DS1) in the ifTable. Assume the entries in the ifTable for the DS2s are created in channel order and the ifIndex values are 2 through 8. In the DS1 MIB [RFC3895], there will be an entry in the dsx1ChanMappingTable for each DS2. The entries will be as follows: Nicklass Standards Track [Page 8]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 dsx1ChanMappingTable Entries ifIndex dsx1Ds1ChannelNumber dsx1ChanMappedIfIndex 1 1 2 1 2 3 ...... 1 7 8 In addition, the DS2s are channelized into DS1s. The object dsx1Channelization is set to enabledDS1 for each DS2. There will be 4 DS1s in the ifTable for each DS2. Assume the entries in the ifTable are created in channel order and the ifIndex values for the DS1s in the first DS2 are 9 through 12, then 13 through 16 for the second DS2, and so on. In the DS1 MIB, there will be an entry in the dsx1ChanMappingTable for each DS1. The entries will be as follows: dsx1ChanMappingTable Entries ifIndex dsx1Ds1ChannelNumber dsx1ChanMappedIfIndex 2 1 9 2 2 10 2 3 11 2 4 12 3 1 13 3 2 14 ... 8 4 36 2.2.4. Usage of Loopbacks This section discusses the behaviour of objects related to loopbacks. The object dsx3LoopbackConfig represents the desired state of loopbacks on this interface. Using this object a Manager can request: LineLoopback PayloadLoopback (if ESF framing) InwardLoopback DualLoopback (Line + Inward) NoLoopback The remote end can also request lookbacks either through the FDL channel if ESF or inband if D4. The loopbacks that can be requested this way are: LineLoopback PayloadLoopback (if ESF framing) NoLoopback Nicklass Standards Track [Page 9]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 To model the current state of loopbacks on a DS3 interface, the object dsx3LoopbackStatus defines which loopback is currently applied to an interface. This object, which is a bitmap, will have bits turned on which reflect the currently active loopbacks on the interface as well as the source of those loopbacks. The following restrictions/rules apply to loopbacks: The far end cannot undo loopbacks set by a manager. A manager can undo loopbacks set by the far end. Both a line loopback and an inward loopback can be set at the same time. Only these two loopbacks can co-exist and either one may be set by the manager or the far end. A LineLoopback request from the far end is incremental to an existing Inward loopback established by a manager. When a NoLoopback is received from the far end in this case, the InwardLoopback remains in place. 2.3. Objectives of this MIB Module There are numerous things that could be included in a MIB for DS3/E3 signals: the management of multiplexors, CSUs, DSUs, and the like. The intent of this document is to facilitate the common management of all devices with DS3/E3 interfaces. As such, a design decision was made up front to very closely align the MIB with the set of objects that can generally be read from DS3/E3 devices that are currently deployed. 2.4. DS3/E3 Terminology The terminology used in this document to describe error conditions on a DS3 interface as monitored by a DS3 device are based on the late but not final draft of what became the ANSI T1.231 standard [ANSI- T1.231]. If the definition in this document does not match the definition in the ANSI T1.231 document, the implementer should follow the definition described in this document. 2.4.1. Error Events Bipolar Violation (BPV) Error Event A bipolar violation error event, for B3ZS(HDB3)-coded signals, is the occurrence of a pulse of the same polarity as the previous pulse without being part of the zero substitution code, B3ZS(HDB3). For B3ZS(HDB3)-coded signals, a bipolar violation error event may also include other error patterns such as: three(four) or more consecutive zeros and incorrect polarity (See T1.231 section 7.1.1.1.1). Nicklass Standards Track [Page 10]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 Excessive Zeros (EXZ) Error Event An EXZ is the occurrence of any zero string length equal to or greater than 3 for B3ZS, or greater than 4 for HDB3 (See T1.231 section 7.1.1.1.2). Line Coding Violation (LCV) Error Event This parameter is a count of both BPVs and EXZs occurring over the accumulation period. An EXZ increments the LCV by one regardless of the length of the zero string. (Also known as CV-L. See T1.231 section 7.4.1.1.) P-bit Coding Violation (PCV) Error Event For all DS3 applications, a coding violation error event is a P-bit Parity Error event. A P-bit Parity Error event is the occurrence of a received P-bit code on the DS3 M-frame that is not identical to the corresponding locally-calculated code (See T1.231 section 7.1.1.2.1). C-bit Coding Violation (CCV) Error Event For C-bit Parity and SYNTRAN DS3 applications, this is the count of coding violations reported via the C-bits. For C-bit Parity, it is a count of CP-bit parity errors occurring in the accumulation interval. For SYNTRAN, it is a count of CRC-9 errors occurring in the accumulation interval (See T1.231 section 7.1.1.2.2). 2.4.2. Performance Parameters All performance parameters are accumulated in fifteen minute intervals and up to 96 intervals (24 hours worth) are kept by an agent. Fewer than 96 intervals of data will be available if the agent has been restarted within the last 24 hours. In addition, there is a rolling 24-hour total of each performance parameter. There is no requirement for an agent to ensure fixed relationship between the start of a fifteen minute interval and any wall clock; however some agents may align the fifteen minute intervals with quarter hours. Performance parameters are of types PerfCurrentCount, PerfIntervalCount and PerfTotalCount. These textual conventions are all Gauge32, and they are used because it is possible for these objects to decrease. Objects may decrease when Unavailable Seconds occurs across a fifteen minutes interval boundary. See Unavailable Seconds discussion later in this section. Nicklass Standards Track [Page 11]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 Line Errored Seconds (LES) A Line Errored Second is a second in which one or more CV occurred OR one or more LOS defects. (Also known as ES-L. See T1.231 section 7.4.1.2.) P-bit Errored Seconds (PES) An PES is a second with one or more PCVs OR one or more Out of Frame defects OR a detected incoming AIS. This gauge is not incremented when UASs are counted. (Also known as ESP-P. See T1.231 section 7.4.2.2.) P-bit Severely Errored Seconds (PSES) A PSES is a second with 44 or more PCVs OR one or more Out of Frame defects OR a detected incoming AIS. This gauge is not incremented when UASs are counted. (Also known as SESP-P. See T1.231 section 7.4.2.5.) C-bit Errored Seconds (CES) An CES is a second with one or more CCVs OR one or more Out of Frame defects OR a detected incoming AIS. This count is only for the SYNTRAN and C-bit Parity DS3 applications. This gauge is not incremented when UASs are counted. (Also known as ESCP-P. See T1.231 section 7.4.2.2.) C-bit Severely Errored Seconds (CSES) A CSES is a second with 44 or more CCVs OR one or more Out of Frame defects OR a detected incoming AIS. This count is only for the SYNTRAN and C-bit Parity DS3 applications. This gauge is not incremented when UASs are counted. (Also known as SESCP-P. See T1.231 section 7.4.2.5.) Severely Errored Framing Seconds (SEFS) A SEFS is a second with one or more Out of Frame defects OR a detected incoming AIS. This item is not incremented during unavailable seconds. (Also known as SAS-P. See T1.231 section 7.4.2.6.) Unavailable Seconds (UAS) UAS are calculated by counting the number of seconds that the interface is unavailable. The DS3 interface is said to be unavailable from the onset of 10 contiguous PSESs, or the onset of the condition leading to a failure (see Failure States). If the condition leading to the failure was immediately preceded by one or more contiguous PSESs, then the DS3 interface unavailability starts from the onset of these PSESs. Once unavailable, and if no failure is present, the DS3 interface becomes available at the onset of 10 contiguous seconds with no PSESs. Once unavailable, and if a Nicklass Standards Track [Page 12]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 failure is present, the DS3 interface becomes available at the onset of 10 contiguous seconds with no PSESs, if the failure clearing time is less than or equal to 10 seconds. If the failure clearing time is more than 10 seconds, the DS3 interface becomes available at the onset of 10 contiguous seconds with no PSESs, or the onset period leading to the successful clearing condition, whichever occurs later. With respect to the DS3 error counts, all counters are incremented while the DS3 interface is deemed available. While the interface is deemed unavailable, the only count that is incremented is UASs. Note that this definition implies that the agent cannot determine until after a ten second interval has passed whether a given one-second interval belongs to available or unavailable time. If the agent chooses to update the various performance statistics in real time then it must be prepared to retroactively reduce the PES, PSES, CES, and CSES counts by 10 and increase the UAS count by 10 when it determines that available time has been entered. It must also be prepared to adjust the PCV, CCV, and SEFS count as necessary since these parameters are not accumulated during unavailable time. Similarly, it must be prepared to retroactively decrease the UAS count by 10 and increase the PES, CES, PCV, and CCV counts as necessary upon entering available time. A special case exists when the 10 second period leading to available or unavailable time crosses a 900 second statistics window boundary, as the foregoing description implies that the PCV, CCV, PES, CES, PSES, CSEC, SEFS, and UAS counts for the PREVIOUS interval must be adjusted. In this case successive GETs of the affected dsx3IntervalPSESs and dsx3IntervalUASs objects will return differing values if the first GET occurs during the first few seconds of the window. The agent may instead choose to delay updates to the various statistics by 10 seconds in order to avoid retroactive adjustments to the counters. A way to do this is sketched in Appendix B. In any case, a linkDown trap shall be sent only after the agent has determined for certain that the unavailable state has been entered, but the time on the trap will be that of the first UAS (i.e., 10 seconds earlier). A linkUp trap shall be handled similarly. According to [ANSI-T1.231] unavailable time begins at the _onset_ of 10 contiguous severely errored seconds -- that is, unavailable time starts with the _first_ of the 10 contiguous SESs. Also, while an interface is deemed unavailable all counters for that interface are Nicklass Standards Track [Page 13]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 frozen except for the UAS count. It follows that an implementation which strictly complies with this standard must _not_ increment any counters other than the UAS count -- even temporarily -- as a result of anything that happens during those 10 seconds. Since changes in the signal state lag the data to which they apply by 10 seconds, an ANSI-compliant implementation must pass the one-second statistics through a 10-second delay line prior to updating any counters. That can be done by performing the following steps at the end of each one second interval. i) Read near/far end CV counter and alarm status flags from the hardware. ii) Accumulate the CV counts for the preceding second and compare them to the ES and SES threshold for the layer in question. Update the signal state and shift the one-second CV counts and ES/SES flags into the 10-element delay line. Note that far-end one-second statistics are to be flagged as "absent" during any second in which there is an incoming defect at the layer in question or at any lower layer. iii) Update the current interval statistics using the signal state from the _previous_ update cycle and the one-second CV counts and ES/SES flags shifted out of the 10-element delay line. This approach is further described in Appendix B. 2.4.3. Performance Defects Failure States: The Remote Alarm Indication (RAI) failure, in SYNTRAN applications, is declared after detecting the Yellow Alarm Signal on the alarm channel. See ANSI T1.107a-1990 [ANSI- T1.107a]. The Remote Alarm Indication failure, in C-bit Parity DS3 applications, is declared as soon as the presence of either one or two alarm signals are detected on the Far End Alarm Channel. See [ANSI-T1.107]. The Remote Alarm Indication failure may also be declared after detecting the far-end SEF/AIS defect (aka yellow). The Remote Alarm Indication failure is cleared as soon as the presence of the any of the above alarms are removed. Also, the incoming failure state is declared when a defect persists for at least 2-10 seconds. The defects are the following: Loss of Signal (LOS), an Out of Frame (OOF) or an incoming Alarm Indication Signal (AIS). The Failure State is cleared when the defect is absent for less than or equal to 20 seconds. Nicklass Standards Track [Page 14]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 Far End SEF/AIS defect (aka yellow) A Far End SEF/AIS defect is the occurrence of the two X-bits in a M-frame set to zero. The Far End SEF/AIS defect is terminated when the two X-bits in a M-frame are set to one. (Also known as SASCP-PFE. See T1.231 section 7.4.4.2.6) Out of Frame (OOF) defect A DS3 OOF defect is detected when any three or more errors in sixteen or fewer consecutive F-bits occur within a DS3 M- frame. An OOF defect may also be called a Severely Errored Frame (SEF) defect. An OOF defect is cleared when reframe occurs. A DS3 Loss of Frame (LOF) failure is declared when the DS3 OOF defect is consistent for 2 to 10 seconds. The DS3 OOF defect ends when reframe occurs. The DS3 LOF failure is cleared when the DS3 OOF defect is absent for 10 to 20 seconds. (See T1.231 section 7.1.2.2.1) An E3 OOF defect is detected when four consecutive frame alignment signals have been incorrectly received in there predicted positions in an E3 signal. E3 frame alignment occurs when the presence of three consecutive frame alignment signals have been detected. Loss of Signal (LOS) defect The DS3 LOS defect is declared upon observing 175 +/- 75 contiguous pulse positions with no pulses of either positive or negative polarity. The DS3 LOS defect is terminated upon observing an average pulse density of at least 33% over a period of 175 +/- 75 contiguous pulse positions starting with the receipt of a pulse. (See T1.231 section 7.1.2.1.1) Alarm Indication Signal (AIS) defect The DS3 AIS is framed with "stuck stuffing." This implies that it has a valid M-subframe alignments bits, M-frame alignment bits, and P bits. The information bits are set to a 1010... sequence, starting with a one (1) after each M- subframe alignment bit, M-frame alignment bit, X bit, P bit, and C bit. The C bits are all set to zero giving what is called "stuck stuffing." The X bits are set to one. The DS3 AIS defect is declared after DS3 AIS is present in contiguous M-frames for a time equal to or greater than T, where 0.2 ms <= T <= 100 ms. The DS3 AIS defect is terminated after AIS is absent in contiguous M-frames for a time equal to or greater than T. (See T1.231 section 7.1.2.2.3) Nicklass Standards Track [Page 15]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 The E3 binary content of the AIS is nominally a continuous stream of ones. AIS detection and the application of consequent actions, should be completed within a time limit of 1 ms. 2.4.4. Other Terms Circuit Identifier This is a character string specified by the circuit vendor, and is useful when communicating with the vendor during the troubleshooting process (see M.1400 [ITU-T-M.1400] for additional information). Proxy In this document, the word proxy is meant to indicate an application which receives SNMP messages and replies to them on behalf of the devices which implement the actual DS3/E3 interfaces. The proxy may have already collected the information about the DS3/E3 interfaces into its local database and may not necessarily forward the requests to the actual DS3/E3 interface. It is expected in such an application that there are periods of time where the proxy is not communicating with the DS3/E3 interfaces. In these instances the proxy will not necessarily have up-to-date configuration information and will most likely have missed the collection of some statistics data. Missed statistics data collection will result in invalid data in the interval table. 3.

RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 DESCRIPTION "The RFC 2496 version of this MIB module. The key changes made to this MIB module since its publication in RFC 1407 are as follows: (1) The Fractional Table has been deprecated. (2) This document uses SMIv2. (3) Values are given for ifTable and ifXTable. (4) Example usage of ifStackTable is included. (5) dsx3IfIndex has been deprecated. (6) The definition of valid intervals has been clarified for the case where the agent proxied for other devices. In particular, the treatment of missing intervals has been clarified. (7) An inward loopback has been added. (8) Additional lineStatus bits have been added for Near End in Unavailable Signal State, Carrier Equipment Out of Service. (9) A read-write line Length object has been added. (10) Added a lineStatus last change, trap and enabler. (11) Textual Conventions for statistics objects have been used. (12) A new object, dsx3LoopbackStatus, has been introduced to reflect the loopbacks established on a DS3/E3 interface and the source to the requests. dsx3LoopbackConfig continues to be the desired loopback state while dsx3LoopbackStatus reflects the actual state. (13) A dual loopback has been added to allow the setting of an inward loopback and a line loopback at the same time. (14) An object has been added to indicated whether or not this is a channelized DS3/E3. (15) A new object has been added to indicate which DS1 is to set for remote loopback."

RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 4. Appendix A - Use of dsx3IfIndex and dsx3LineIndex This Appendix exists to document the previous use if dsx3IfIndex and dsx3LineIndex and to clarify the relationship of dsx3LineIndex as defined in RFC 1407 with the dsx3LineIndex as defined in this document. The following shows the old and new definitions and the relationship: [New Definition]: "This object should be made equal to ifIndex. The next paragraph describes its previous usage. Making the object equal to ifIndex allows proper use of ifStackTable. [Old Definition]: "this object is the identifier of a DS3/E3 Interface on a managed device. If there is an ifEntry that is directly associated with this and only this DS3/E3 interface, it should have the same value as ifIndex. Otherwise, number the dsx3LineIndices with an unique identifier following the rules of choosing a number that is greater than ifNumber and numbering the inside interfaces (e.g., equipment side) with even numbers and outside interfaces (e.g, network side) with odd numbers." When the "Old Definition" was created, it was described this way to allow a manager to treat the value _as if_ it were an ifIndex, i.e., the value would either be: 1) an ifIndex value or 2) a value that was guaranteed to be different from all valid ifIndex values. The new definition is a subset of that definition, i.e., the value is always an ifIndex value. The following is Section 3.1 from [RFC1407]: Different physical configurations for the support of SNMP with DS3/E3 equipment exist. To accommodate these scenarios, two different indices for DS3/E3 interfaces are introduced in this MIB. These indices are dsx3IfIndex and dsx3LineIndex. External interface scenario: the SNMP Agent represents all managed DS3/E3 lines as external interfaces (for example, an Agent residing on the device supporting DS3/E3 interfaces directly): Nicklass Standards Track [Page 54]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 For this scenario, all interfaces are assigned an integer value equal to ifIndex, and the following applies: ifIndex=dsx3IfIndex=dsx3LineIndex for all interfaces. The dsx3IfIndex column of the DS3/E3 Configuration table relates each DS3/E3 interface to its corresponding interface (ifIndex) in the Internet-standard MIB (MIB-II STD 17, [RFC1213]). External&Internal interface scenario: the SNMP Agents resides on an host external from the device supporting DS3/E3 interfaces (e.g., a router). The Agent represents both the host and the DS3/E3 device. The index dsx3LineIndex is used to not only represent the DS3/E3 interfaces external from the host/DS3/E3-device combination, but also the DS3/E3 interfaces connecting the host and the DS3/E3 device. The index dsx3IfIndex is always equal to ifIndex. Example: A shelf full of CSUs connected to a Router. An SNMP Agent residing on the router proxies for itself and the CSU. The router has also an Ethernet interface: +-----+ | | | | | | +---------------------+ |E | | 44.736 MBPS | ds3 M13 Line#A | ds3 C-bit Parity |t | R |---------------+ - - - - - - - - - +------> |h | | | | |e | O | 44.736 MBPS | ds3 M13 Line#B | ds3 C-bit Parity |r | |---------------+ - - - - - - - - - - +------> |n | U | | | |e | | 44.736 MBPS | ds3 M13 Line#C | ds3 C-bit Parity |t | T |---------------+ - - - -- -- - - - - +------> | | | | | |-----| E | 44.736 MBPS | ds3 M13 Line#D | ds3 C-bit Parity | | |---------------+ - - - - -- - - - - +------> | | R | |_____________________| | | | | +-----+ Nicklass Standards Track [Page 55]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 The assignment of the index values could for example be: ifIndex (= dsx3IfIndex) dsx3LineIndex 1 NA NA (Ethernet) 2 Line#A Router Side 6 2 Line#A Network Side 7 3 Line#B Router Side 8 3 Line#B Network Side 9 4 Line#C Router Side 10 4 Line#C Network Side 11 5 Line#D Router Side 12 5 Line#D Network Side 13 For this example, ifNumber is equal to 5. Note the following description of dsx3LineIndex: the dsx3LineIndex identifies a DS3/E3 Interface on a managed device. If there is an ifEntry that is directly associated with this and only this DS3/E3 interface, it should have the same value as ifIndex. Otherwise, number the dsx3LineIndices with an unique identifier following the rules of choosing a number greater than ifNumber and numbering inside interfaces (e.g., equipment side) with even numbers and outside interfaces (e.g., network side) with odd numbers. If the CSU shelf is managed by itself by a local SNMP Agent, the situation would be: ifIndex (= dsx3IfIndex) dsx3LineIndex 1 Line#A Network Side 1 2 Line#A RouterSide 2 3 Line#B Network Side 3 4 Line#B RouterSide 4 5 Line#C Network Side 5 6 Line#C Router Side 6 7 Line#D Network Side 7 8 Line#D Router Side 8 5. Appendix B - The delay approach to Unavialable Seconds. This procedure is illustrated below for a DS3 C-Bit parity application. Similar rules would apply for other interfaces covered by this MIB. The procedure guarantees that the statistical counters are correctly updated at all times, although they lag real time by 10 seconds. At the end of each 15 minutes interval the current interval counts are transferred to the most recent interval entry and each interval is shifted up by one position, with the oldest being discarded if necessary in order to make room.

RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 [RFC3410] Case, J., Mundy, R., Partain, D., and B. Stewart, "Introduction and Applicability Statements for Internet-Standard Management Framework", RFC 3410, December 2002. 8. Security Considerations There are a number of management objects defined in this MIB module with a MAX-ACCESS clause of read-write. Such objects may be considered sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments. The support for SET operations in a non-secure environment without proper protection can have a negative effect on network operations. The specific the objects and their sensitivities/vulnerabilities are as follows. Setting the following objects to incorrect values may result in traffic interruptions: dsx3LineType dsx3LineCoding dsx3SendCode dsx3LoopbackConfig dsx3TransmitClockSource dsx3LineLength dsx3Channelization dsx3Ds1ForRemoteLoop In the case of dsx3LineType, for example, both ends of a DS3/E3 must have the same value in order for traffic to flow. In the case of dsx3SendCode and dsx3LoopbackConfig, for another example, traffic may stop transmitting when particular loopbacks are applied. Setting the following objects to an incorrect value will result in the remote end receiving an incorrect Path Identification message, which may result in a connectivity inconsistency: dsx3FarEndEquipCode dsx3FarEndLocationIDCode dsx3FarEndFrameIDCode dsx3FarEndUnitCode dsx3FarEndFacilityIDCode Nicklass Standards Track [Page 60]
RFC 3896 DS3/E3 MIB September 2004 Setting the following object to an incorrect value will not harm the traffic, but it may cause a circuit to be mis-identified and thereby create difficulties for service personnel when attempting to troubleshoot a problem: dsx3CircuitIdentifier Setting the following object can cause an increase in the number of traps received by the network management station: dsx3LineStatusChangeTrapEnable The readable objects in this MIB module (i.e., the objects with a MAX-ACCESS other than not-accessible) may be considered sensitive in some environments since, collectively, they provide extensive information about the performance of interfaces in DS3/E3 equipment or networks and can reveal some aspects of their configuration. In such environments it is important to control even GET and NOTIFY access to these objects and possibly to encrypt the values of these objects when sending them over the network via SNMP. SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 did not include adequate security. Even if the network itself is secure (for example by using IPSec), even then, there is no control as to who on the secure network is allowed to access and GET/SET (read/change/create/delete) the objects in this MIB module. It is RECOMMENDED that implementers consider the security features as provided by the SNMPv3 framework (see [RFC3410], section 8), including full support for the SNMPv3 cryptographic mechanisms (for authentication and privacy). Further, deployment of SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 is NOT RECOMMENDED. Instead, it is RECOMMENDED to deploy SNMPv3 and to enable cryptographic security. It is then a customer/operator responsibility to ensure that the SNMP entity giving access to an instance of this MIB module is properly configured to give access to the objects only to those principals (users) that have legitimate rights to indeed GET or SET (change/create/delete) them.
