DisplayString ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION
    DISPLAY-HINT "255a"
    STATUS       current
    DESCRIPTION
        "Represents textual information taken from the NVT ASCII
         character set, as defined in pages 4, 10-11 of RFC 854.

         To summarize RFC 854, the NVT ASCII repertoire specifies:

           - the use of character codes 0-127 (decimal)

           - the graphics characters (32-126) are interpreted as
             US ASCII

           - NUL, LF, CR, BEL, BS, HT, VT and FF have the special
             meanings specified in RFC 854

           - the other 25 codes have no standard interpretation

           - the sequence 'CR LF' means newline

           - the sequence 'CR NUL' means carriage-return

           - an 'LF' not preceded by a 'CR' means moving to the
             same column on the next line.

           - the sequence 'CR x' for any x other than LF or NUL is
             illegal.  (Note that this also means that a string may
             end with either 'CR LF' or 'CR NUL', but not with CR.)

         Any object defined using this syntax may not exceed 255
         characters in length."

         were transmitted least significant bit first, even though

TestAndIncr ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION
    STATUS       current
    DESCRIPTION
        "Represents integer-valued information used for atomic
         operations.  When the management protocol is used to specify
         that an object instance having this syntax is to be
         modified, the new value supplied via the management protocol
         must precisely match the value presently held by the
         instance.  If not, the management protocol set operation
         fails with an error of `inconsistentValue'.  Otherwise, if
         the current value is the maximum value of 2^31-1 (2147483647
         decimal), then the value held by the instance is wrapped to
         zero; otherwise, the value held by the instance is
         incremented by one.  (Note that regardless of whether the
         management protocol set operation succeeds, the variable-
         binding in the request and response PDUs are identical.)

         The value of the ACCESS clause for objects having this
         syntax is either `read-write' or `read-create'.  When an
         instance of a columnar object having this syntax is created,
         any value may be supplied via the management protocol.

         When the network management portion of the system is re-
         initialized, the value of every object instance having this
         syntax must either be incremented from its value prior to
         the re-initialization, or (if the value prior to the re-
         initialization is unknown) be set to a pseudo-randomly
         generated value."

    SYNTAX       OBJECT IDENTIFIER

RowStatus ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION
    STATUS       current
    DESCRIPTION
        "The RowStatus textual convention is used to manage the
                 creation and deletion of conceptual rows, and is used as the
                 value of the SYNTAX clause for the status column of a
                 conceptual row (as described in Section 7.7.1 of [2].)

                 The status column has six defined values:

                      - `active', which indicates that the conceptual row is
                      available for use by the managed device;

                      - `notInService', which indicates that the conceptual
                      row exists in the agent, but is unavailable for use by
                      the managed device (see NOTE below);

                      - `notReady', which indicates that the conceptual row
                      exists in the agent, but is missing information
                      necessary in order to be available for use by the
                      managed device;

                      - `createAndGo', which is supplied by a management
                      station wishing to create a new instance of a
                      conceptual row and to have its status automatically set
                      to active, making it available for use by the managed
                      device;

                      - `createAndWait', which is supplied by a management
                      station wishing to create a new instance of a
                      conceptual row (but not make it available for use by
                      the managed device); and,

                      - `destroy', which is supplied by a management station
                      wishing to delete all of the instances associated with
                      an existing conceptual row.

                 Whereas five of the six values (all except `notReady') may
                 be specified in a management protocol set operation, only
                 three values will be returned in response to a management
                 protocol retrieval operation:  `notReady', `notInService' or
                 `active'.  That is, when queried, an existing conceptual row
                 has only three states:  it is either available for use by
                 the managed device (the status column has value `active');
                 it is not available for use by the managed device, though
                 the agent has sufficient information to make it so (the
                 status column has value `notInService'); or, it is not
                 available for use by the managed device, and an attempt to
                 make it so would fail because the agent has insufficient
                 information (the state column has value `notReady').
                                          NOTE WELL

                      This textual convention may be used for a MIB table,
                      irrespective of whether the values of that table's
                      conceptual rows are able to be modified while it is
                      active, or whether its conceptual rows must be taken
                      out of service in order to be modified.  That is, it is
                      the responsibility of the DESCRIPTION clause of the
                      status column to specify whether the status column must
                      not be `active' in order for the value of some other
                      column of the same conceptual row to be modified.  If
                      such a specification is made, affected columns may be
                      changed by an SNMP set PDU if the RowStatus would not
                      be equal to `active' either immediately before or after
                      processing the PDU.  In other words, if the PDU also
                      contained a varbind that would change the RowStatus
                      value, the column in question may be changed if the
                      RowStatus was not equal to `active' as the PDU was
                      received, or if the varbind sets the status to a value
                      other than 'active'.

                 Also note that whenever any elements of a row exist, the
                 RowStatus column must also exist.
                 To summarize the effect of having a conceptual row with a
                 status column having a SYNTAX clause value of RowStatus,
                 consider the following state diagram:

                 (1) goto B or C, depending on information available to the
                 agent.
                 (2) if other variable bindings included in the same PDU,
                 provide values for all columns which are missing but
                 required, then return noError and goto D.

                 (3) if other variable bindings included in the same PDU,
                 provide values for all columns which are missing but
                 required, then return noError and goto C.

                 (4) at the discretion of the agent, the return value may be
                 either:

                      inconsistentName:  because the agent does not choose to
                      create such an instance when the corresponding
                      RowStatus instance does not exist, or

                      inconsistentValue:  if the supplied value is
                      inconsistent with the state of some other MIB object's
                      value, or

                      noError: because the agent chooses to create the
                      instance.

                 If noError is returned, then the instance of the status
                 column must also be created, and the new state is B or C,
                 depending on the information available to the agent.  If
                 inconsistentName or inconsistentValue is returned, the row
                 remains in state A.

                 (5) depending on the MIB definition for the column/table,
                 either noError or inconsistentValue may be returned.

                 NOTE: Other processing of the set request may result in a
                 response other than noError being returned, e.g.,
                 wrongValue, noCreation, etc.

                                   Conceptual Row Creation

                 There are four potential interactions when creating a
                 conceptual row:  selecting an instance-identifier which is
                 not in use; creating the conceptual row; initializing any
                 objects for which the agent does not supply a default; and,
                 making the conceptual row available for use by the managed
                 device.
                 Interaction 1: Selecting an Instance-Identifier

                 The algorithm used to select an instance-identifier varies
                 for each conceptual row.  In some cases, the instance-
                 identifier is semantically significant, e.g., the
                 destination address of a route, and a management station
                 selects the instance-identifier according to the semantics.

                 In other cases, the instance-identifier is used solely to
                 distinguish conceptual rows, and a management station
                 without specific knowledge of the conceptual row might
                 examine the instances present in order to determine an
                 unused instance-identifier.  (This approach may be used, but
                 it is often highly sub-optimal; however, it is also a
                 questionable practice for a naive management station to
                 attempt conceptual row creation.)

                 Alternately, the MIB module which defines the conceptual row
                 might provide one or more objects which provide assistance
                 in determining an unused instance-identifier.  For example,
                 if the conceptual row is indexed by an integer-value, then
                 an object having an integer-valued SYNTAX clause might be
                 defined for such a purpose, allowing a management station to
                 issue a management protocol retrieval operation.  In order
                 to avoid unnecessary collisions between competing management
                 stations, `adjacent' retrievals of this object should be
                 different.

                 Finally, the management station could select a pseudo-random
                 number to use as the index.  In the event that this index
                 was already in use and an inconsistentValue was returned in
                 response to the management protocol set operation, the
                 management station should simply select a new pseudo-random
                 number and retry the operation.

                 A MIB designer should choose between the two latter
                 algorithms based on the size of the table (and therefore the
                 efficiency of each algorithm).  For tables in which a large
                 number of entries are expected, it is recommended that a MIB
                 object be defined that returns an acceptable index for
                 creation.  For tables with small numbers of entries, it is
                 recommended that the latter pseudo-random index mechanism be
                 used.
                 Interaction 2: Creating the Conceptual Row

                 Once an unused instance-identifier has been selected, the
                 management station determines if it wishes to create and
                 activate the conceptual row in one transaction or in a
                 negotiated set of interactions.

                 Interaction 2a: Creating and Activating the Conceptual Row

                 The management station must first determine the column
                 requirements, i.e., it must determine those columns for
                 which it must or must not provide values.  Depending on the
                 complexity of the table and the management station's
                 knowledge of the agent's capabilities, this determination
                 can be made locally by the management station.  Alternately,
                 the management station issues a management protocol get
                 operation to examine all columns in the conceptual row that
                 it wishes to create.  In response, for each column, there
                 are three possible outcomes:

                      - a value is returned, indicating that some other
                      management station has already created this conceptual
                      row.  We return to interaction 1.

                      - the exception `noSuchInstance' is returned,
                      indicating that the agent implements the object-type
                      associated with this column, and that this column in at
                      least one conceptual row would be accessible in the MIB
                      view used by the retrieval were it to exist. For those
                      columns to which the agent provides read-create access,
                      the `noSuchInstance' exception tells the management
                      station that it should supply a value for this column
                      when the conceptual row is to be created.

                      - the exception `noSuchObject' is returned, indicating
                      that the agent does not implement the object-type
                      associated with this column or that there is no
                      conceptual row for which this column would be
                      accessible in the MIB view used by the retrieval.  As
                      such, the management station can not issue any
                      management protocol set operations to create an
                      instance of this column.

                 Once the column requirements have been determined, a
                 management protocol set operation is accordingly issued.
                 This operation also sets the new instance of the status
                 column to `createAndGo'.
                 When the agent processes the set operation, it verifies that
                 it has sufficient information to make the conceptual row
                 available for use by the managed device.  The information
                 available to the agent is provided by two sources:  the
                 management protocol set operation which creates the
                 conceptual row, and, implementation-specific defaults
                 supplied by the agent (note that an agent must provide
                 implementation-specific defaults for at least those objects
                 which it implements as read-only).  If there is sufficient
                 information available, then the conceptual row is created, a
                 `noError' response is returned, the status column is set to
                 `active', and no further interactions are necessary (i.e.,
                 interactions 3 and 4 are skipped).  If there is insufficient
                 information, then the conceptual row is not created, and the
                 set operation fails with an error of `inconsistentValue'.
                 On this error, the management station can issue a management
                 protocol retrieval operation to determine if this was
                 because it failed to specify a value for a required column,
                 or, because the selected instance of the status column
                 already existed.  In the latter case, we return to
                 interaction 1.  In the former case, the management station
                 can re-issue the set operation with the additional
                 information, or begin interaction 2 again using
                 `createAndWait' in order to negotiate creation of the
                 conceptual row.

                                          NOTE WELL

                      Regardless of the method used to determine the column
                      requirements, it is possible that the management
                      station might deem a column necessary when, in fact,
                      the agent will not allow that particular columnar
                      instance to be created or written.  In this case, the
                      management protocol set operation will fail with an
                      error such as `noCreation' or `notWritable'.  In this
                      case, the management station decides whether it needs
                      to be able to set a value for that particular columnar
                      instance.  If not, the management station re-issues the
                      management protocol set operation, but without setting
                      a value for that particular columnar instance;
                      otherwise, the management station aborts the row
                      creation algorithm.

                 Interaction 2b: Negotiating the Creation of the Conceptual
                 Row

                 The management station issues a management protocol set
                 operation which sets the desired instance of the status
                 column to `createAndWait'.  If the agent is unwilling to
                 process a request of this sort, the set operation fails with
                 an error of `wrongValue'.  (As a consequence, such an agent
                 must be prepared to accept a single management protocol set
                 operation, i.e., interaction 2a above, containing all of the
                 columns indicated by its column requirements.)  Otherwise,
                 the conceptual row is created, a `noError' response is
                 returned, and the status column is immediately set to either
                 `notInService' or `notReady', depending on whether it has
                 sufficient information to make the conceptual row available
                 for use by the managed device.  If there is sufficient
                 information available, then the status column is set to
                 `notInService'; otherwise, if there is insufficient
                 information, then the status column is set to `notReady'.
                 Regardless, we proceed to interaction 3.

                 Interaction 3: Initializing non-defaulted Objects

                 The management station must now determine the column
                 requirements.  It issues a management protocol get operation
                 to examine all columns in the created conceptual row.  In
                 the response, for each column, there are three possible
                 outcomes:

                      - a value is returned, indicating that the agent
                      implements the object-type associated with this column
                      and had sufficient information to provide a value.  For
                      those columns to which the agent provides read-create
                      access (and for which the agent allows their values to
                      be changed after their creation), a value return tells
                      the management station that it may issue additional
                      management protocol set operations, if it desires, in
                      order to change the value associated with this column.

                      - the exception `noSuchInstance' is returned,
                      indicating that the agent implements the object-type
                      associated with this column, and that this column in at
                      least one conceptual row would be accessible in the MIB
                      view used by the retrieval were it to exist. However,
                      the agent does not have sufficient information to
                      provide a value, and until a value is provided, the
                      conceptual row may not be made available for use by the
                      managed device.  For those columns to which the agent
                      provides read-create access, the `noSuchInstance'
                      exception tells the management station that it must
                      issue additional management protocol set operations, in
                      order to provide a value associated with this column.
                      - the exception `noSuchObject' is returned, indicating
                      that the agent does not implement the object-type
                      associated with this column or that there is no
                      conceptual row for which this column would be
                      accessible in the MIB view used by the retrieval.  As
                      such, the management station can not issue any
                      management protocol set operations to create an
                      instance of this column.

                 If the value associated with the status column is
                 `notReady', then the management station must first deal with
                 all `noSuchInstance' columns, if any.  Having done so, the
                 value of the status column becomes `notInService', and we
                 proceed to interaction 4.

                 Interaction 4: Making the Conceptual Row Available

                 Once the management station is satisfied with the values
                 associated with the columns of the conceptual row, it issues
                 a management protocol set operation to set the status column
                 to `active'.  If the agent has sufficient information to
                 make the conceptual row available for use by the managed
                 device, the management protocol set operation succeeds (a
                 `noError' response is returned).  Otherwise, the management
                 protocol set operation fails with an error of
                 `inconsistentValue'.

                                          NOTE WELL

                      A conceptual row having a status column with value
                      `notInService' or `notReady' is unavailable to the
                      managed device.  As such, it is possible for the
                      managed device to create its own instances during the
                      time between the management protocol set operation
                      which sets the status column to `createAndWait' and the
                      management protocol set operation which sets the status
                      column to `active'.  In this case, when the management
                      protocol set operation is issued to set the status
                      column to `active', the values held in the agent
                      supersede those used by the managed device.

                 If the management station is prevented from setting the
                 status column to `active' (e.g., due to management station
                 or network failure) the conceptual row will be left in the
                 `notInService' or `notReady' state, consuming resources
                 indefinitely.  The agent must detect conceptual rows that
                 have been in either state for an abnormally long period of
                 time and remove them.  It is the responsibility of the
                 DESCRIPTION clause of the status column to indicate what an
                 abnormally long period of time would be.  This period of
                 time should be long enough to allow for human response time
                 (including `think time') between the creation of the
                 conceptual row and the setting of the status to `active'.
                 In the absense of such information in the DESCRIPTION
                 clause, it is suggested that this period be approximately 5
                 minutes in length.  This removal action applies not only to
                 newly-created rows, but also to previously active rows which
                 are set to, and left in, the notInService state for a
                 prolonged period exceeding that which is considered normal
                 for such a conceptual row.

                                  Conceptual Row Suspension

                 When a conceptual row is `active', the management station
                 may issue a management protocol set operation which sets the
                 instance of the status column to `notInService'.  If the
                 agent is unwilling to do so, the set operation fails with an
                 error of `wrongValue'.  Otherwise, the conceptual row is
                 taken out of service, and a `noError' response is returned.
                 It is the responsibility of the DESCRIPTION clause of the
                 status column to indicate under what circumstances the
                 status column should be taken out of service (e.g., in order
                 for the value of some other column of the same conceptual
                 row to be modified).

                                   Conceptual Row Deletion

                 For deletion of conceptual rows, a management protocol set
                 operation is issued which sets the instance of the status
                 column to `destroy'.  This request may be made regardless of
                 the current value of the status column (e.g., it is possible
                 to delete conceptual rows which are either `notReady',
                 `notInService' or `active'.)  If the operation succeeds,
                 then all instances associated with the conceptual row are
                 immediately removed."
