Coordinate ifIndex value allocation for entries
in an associated ifIndex-ed interface table,
by first reading an ifIndex value from this object,
then creating an entry, having that ifIndex
value, in the associated interface table.
The DESCRIPTION clause for an object of this type must
identify the associated interface table.
A GET of this object returns the next available ifIndex
value to be used to create an entry in the associated
interface table; or zero, if no valid ifIndex value is
available. This object also returns a value of zero when
it is the lexicographic successor of a varbind presented
in an SNMP GETNEXT or GETBULK request, for which circumstance
it is assumed that ifIndex allocation is unintended.
Successive GETs will typically return different
values, thus avoiding collisions among cooperating
management clients seeking to create table entries
Unless specified otherwise by its MAX-ACCESS and DESCRIPTION
clauses, an object of this type is read-only, and a SET of
such an object returns a notWritable error.
Compressed index representation to identify both numbered and
unnumbered ('address-less') IP subnetworks.
One approach is to identify such interfaces with a 2-tuple
consisting of , where only one of the
pair is nonzero for a valid interface (IpAddress is nonzero for
numbered interfaces, ifIndex is nonzero for unnumbered interfaces).
As an alternative, this textual convention compresses the 2-tuple
information into an IpAddress (32-bit) format a.b.c.d having the
Format Interpretation IP Interface Type
0.0.0.0 'null' value 'none' or 'wildcard', etc.
a.b.c.d, a != 0 IP Address Numbered
0.b.c.d ifIndex Unnumbered
For the unnumbered case, the value of the ifIndex is given by
(b * 65536) + (c * 256) + (d)
A side-effect of this approach is that ifIndex values for
IP network interfaces must fall in the range 1..16777215
(i.e. 24 bits).
A bit map representing one or more timeslots of a
DS1/E1 interface. Bits are numbered in descending order
from 31-0 starting from the most significant bit of the
first octet and ending with the least significant bit of
the fourth octet. Bits 1-24 are relevant for DS1 interfaces,
bits 0-31 are relevant for E1 interfaces.
A bit is set if the associated timeslot is in use, and cleared
if the associated timeslot is not in use.
The desired administrative state for the collection of
accounting records. The administrative domain governed by
an object of RsAcctngAdminType is defined in the MIB
OBJECT description that uses this type.
The operational state for the collection of accounting records.
The administrative domain that an object of this type
is reporting state for, is defined in the MIB object
description that uses this type.
The notSupported(2) state indicates that accounting data
collection is not supported for the entity using an object of
RsAcctngOperType type. If an entity does not support
accounting data collection, an object of RsAcctngOperType
type will report notSupported(2) regardless of the value set
in the corresponding RsAcctngAdminType.
The disabled(0) state indicates that the corresponding
RsAcctngAdminType object has been set to disabled(0). If a
data collection is in process, the value of RsAcctngOperType
will change to disabled(0) after the current collection
The enabled(1) state indicates that the corresponding
RsAcctngAdminType object has been set to enabled(1) and
that the entity is ready to collect accounting records.
