Defined Types

CvcControllerShelfLocation  
The location of the Controller Shelf. internal(1) - controller resides on the same shelf as the switch. external(2) - controller resides on the external platform. The controller shelf is connected to the switch by an ATM link.
TEXTUAL-CONVENTION    
  INTEGER internal(1), external(2)  

CvcControllerType  
The type of the controller which is a VSI Master. The Possible values are : par(1) - Portable Auto Route(PAR). This is a VSI Master controller implementing Cisco Proprietary protocol for network routing and topology in a Network containing only Cisco Switches. pnni(2) - Private Network-to-Network Interface (PNNI) controller. The PNNI protocol is used between private ATM Switches and between groups of ATM switches. This protocol is defined for distributing topology information between switches and clusters of switches. lsc(3) - Label Switch Controller(TSC).The LSC Implements MPLS (Multi Protocol Label Switching) protocol. The LSC is a router which is capable of controlling the operation of a separate ATM switch so that the two of them together function as a single ATM-LSR(ATM Label Switch Router). The LSC controls the operation of the ATM Switch using a 'Switch Control Protocol', which allows the LSC to setup and remove cross-connects on the ATM switch, to discover the configuration and capabilities of the controlled switch, and to gather statistics from the controlled switch.

ciscoVSIControllerMIB 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.141
This MIB module is used for configuring ATM Capable Switch to be aware of VSI Controller information. Terminolgies used: VSI - Virtual Switch Interface, a hardware-independent switch control protocol. This allows a Switch(node) to be controlled by a multiple controllers such as PNNI,LSC. These control planes can be internal or external to the switch.The VSI interface defines the messages and associated functions which allow communication between the controller and the switch.This interface is expected to support all types of connections (voice,data,frame relay,ATM) for PVCs, SPVCs and SVCs. VSI Master - software component which requests connections and receives switch generic information. This controls one or more VSI Slaves. This may run on the switch or a dedicated controller platform. This is the master module.It performs the interface to the higher layer networking software and handles all VSI related functions. VSI Slave - software component which converts generic connection requests into hardware specific requests and hardware specific information into generic information. This runs on the switch.a A centralized slave has a single point of control for making connections and controlling interfaces, while a distributed slave allows for multiple slaves to coexist on the same switch. Controller - Software ( and possibly hardware) which manages topology and network resources and performs VSI Master fucntion. This performs source routing for ent-to-end SVCs, including general call acceptance GCAC,setup calls with other controllers. PNNI and MPLS are examples for the Controller. Controller Shelf - A controller shelf is a switch containing atleast one VSI Controller which is controlling a different switch.It will also, typically, contain 'local' controllers for itself.

cvcConfTable 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.141.1.1.1
This table contains the entries for VSI Controllers. This table is used for informing the VSI Slaves about the existence of VSI Controllers and how the VSI slaves can reach the controller. The information in these entries are advertised to all the VSI Slaves using a system dependent implementation when an entry is created/activated.

  SEQUENCE OF  
    CvcConfEntry

cvcConfEntry 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.141.1.1.1.1
An entry for a VSI Controller. The entries in this table are created by setting the cvcConfRowStatus object to 'createAndGo(4)'. The entries in this table are deleted by setting the cvcConfRowStatus object to 'destroy(6)'. The entries are can be created/modified/deleted through the Command Line Interface(CLI) also.

  CvcConfEntry  

cvcConfControllerID 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.141.1.1.1.1.1
This is the unique value for VSI Controller(VSI Master). The VSI Slave uses this value in the message to identify the VSI Master controller.
