|This MIB module defines the textual conventions
used in the enhanced image MIB.
Essential part of the operating system,
which forms base functionality on top of
which patches can be added.
MBI (Minimum bootable image)
A small image which contains the smallest
possible amount of functionality required to
bootstrap and load a full image. This image
typically contains the kernel, the file system
drivers, and some hardware initialization code.
It is executed at boot-up, and initializes just
enough to access the rest of the code, and
Modular operating system
An operating system that exhibits runtime
modularity characteristics, such as multiple
address spaces, fault isolation between
processes, and modularity delivery and
replacement of image components.
Patch/Package/SMU (software maintenance upgrade)
A modular replacement for some piece of on-box
content, such as a binary shared object, or a
text file. This entity is meant to replace or
augment something that is already part of the
Group of packages delivered as a bundle. It is
meant to be loaded on MBI.
A non-binary piece of on-box content, typically
a TCL script for use by the TCL interpreter, or
some other form of interpreted router content.
An installable can be a patch, package, composite
package, SMU or script. It is a piece of
software which can be loaded on to the base
image on a system.
