1.3 LOCAL MANAGEMENT OVERVIEW
Cabletron Systems Local Management is a management tool that allows a
network manager to perform the following tasks:
•
Configure interconnected devices to form a network
•
Monitor the performance of the network
•
Control user access to the network and its components for the purpose
of security
1.3.1 The Management Agent
The management agent is a processor within the MicroMMAC which
collects statistical information (e.g., frames received, errors detected)
about the managed network’s operational performance. Local
Management communicates with the management agent for the purpose
of viewing statistics or issuing management commands to network
devices.
Page 1-2
MicroMMAC Local Management User’s Guide
Local Management Requirements
1.3.2 In-Band vs. Out-of-Band
Network management systems are often classified as either in-band or
out-of-band. In-band network management passes data along the same
medium (cables, frequencies) used by all other stations on the network.
An example of an in-band network management system is Cabletron
Systems SPECTRUM.
Out-of-band network management passes data along a medium that is
entirely separate from the network’s common data carrier, for example, a
cable connection between a dumb terminal and the COM port of the
MicroMMAC. Cabletron Systems Local Management is an out-of-band
network management system.
A device connected out-of-band to the management agent is not
connected to the LAN. This type of connection allows you to
communicate with a network device even when that device is unable to
communicate through the network, for example, at the time of
installation.
1.3.3 Local vs. Remote Management
Network management applications are usually described as either local or
remote management applications. Local management applications reside
within the circuits of the management device’s management agent.
Remote management applications run within the circuits of another
device that provides management services. This allows you to perform
network management from a remote location.
1.4 LOCAL MANAGEMENT REQUIREMENTS
The MicroMMAC provides two communication ports. Each port supports
a management terminal connection. To access Local Management,
connect one of the following systems to either COM 1 or COM 2:
•
Digital Equipment Corporation VT series terminal
•
VT type terminal running emulation programs for the Digital
Equipment Corporation VT series
•
IBM or compatible PC running a VT series emulation software
package
You can also access Local Management using a Telnet connection
through one of the network ports of the MicroMMAC.

DEL
Keyboard Conventions (Continued)
This key decreases values from some
Local Management selection fields.
For example, “Press [–]” means to
press the MINUS key.
The DEL (Delete) key removes
characters from a Local Management
Selection field. For example, “Press
DEL” means to press the DELETE
key.
1.7 NAVIGATING LOCAL MANAGEMENT SCREENS
To navigate within a Local Management screen, use the arrow keys of the
terminal or the workstation providing terminal emulation services. The
Local Management screen cursor responds to the LEFT-ARROW,
RIGHT-ARROW, UP-ARROW, and DOWN-ARROW keys. Each time
you press an arrow key, the Local Management screen cursor moves to
the next available field in the direction of the arrow key.
The Local Management screen cursor only moves to fields which can be
selected or used for input. This means that the cursor jumps over display
fields and empty lines on the Local Management screen.
The Local Management screen cursor provides wrap-around operation.
This means that a cursor located at the edge of a screen, when moved in
the direction of that edge, “wraps around” to the outermost selectable
item on the opposite side of the screen which is on the same line or
column.

System Level Screen Fields
Subnet Mask
Use this field to enter the subnet mask for the MicroMMAC. Subnets are
logical divisions of the network that isolate groups of devices. The subnet
mask determines how the MicroMMAC directs SNMP traps to a
management workstation. If the MicroMMAC resides on the same
network as the management workstation, then the MicroMMAC sends
SNMP traps directly to the management workstation. If the MicroMMAC
resides on a different subnet as the management workstation, then the
MicroMMAC sends SNMP traps to a gateway or router.
•
Use the subnet mask default setting, 255.255.0.0, when the
management workstations designated to receive SNMP traps reside on
the same network as the MicroMMAC.
•
Set a new value for the subnet mask when management workstations
designated to receive SNMP traps reside on a different subnet (for
example, across a gateway or router).
Default Gateway
Use this field to enter the default gateway for the MicroMMAC. The
default gateway is the IP address of the network device (gateway or
router) used to forward SNMP traps to a management station. The default
setting for this field is NONE DEFINED.
Phys Address
This field displays the physical address of the MicroMMAC. You cannot
modify the physical address.
Default Interface
Use this field to select the default interface for the MicroMMAC’s default
gateway. The default interface is the channel that is set up to handle
SNMP traps sent to an IP station that is not on the same subnet as the
MicroMMAC in an IP routed environment. The default setting for this
field is NONE DEFINED.
COM 1 Application
Use this field to select the communication port’s application. Settings for
this field are UNASSIGNED, SLIP, UPS, or LM.

11.1 MANAGING DEVICE MIBS
The MIB Navigator lets you manage objects in the MicroMMAC
Management Information Bases (MIBs). MIBs are databases of objects
used for managing the device and determining the MicroMMAC
configuration. The commands within the MIB Navigator allow you to
view and modify a device’s objects.
The MIB Navigator views the MIB tree hierarchy as a directory.
Figure 11-2 shows the MIB tree hierarchy. Each layer is numerically
encoded, so that every branch group and leaf object in the MIB is
identified by a corresponding number, known as an Object Identifier
(OID). This allows the MIB Navigator to navigate through the MIB and
access the manageable leaf objects.
Group 1.1
Root 1
Group 1.2
Group 1.3
Object 1.1.1
Object 1.1.2
Object 1.2.1
Object 1.2.2
Object 1.3.1
Object 1.3.2
1574-27
Figure 11-2
Hierarchical MIB Tree Structure
Often an ASCII name is assigned to the OID of a leaf object, making it
more readable. To identify the value for the object “ip Forwarding” you
would use the OID (/1/3/6/1/2/1/4/1), or its ASCII name (/iso/org/dod/
internet/mgmt/mib-2/ip/ipForwarding).

Chapter 11: MIB Navigator Screen
11.2.1 Conventions for MIB Navigator Commands
This manual uses the following conventions for denoting commands:
•
Information keyed by the user is shown in this helvetica font.
•
Command arguments are indicated by two types of brackets:
-
required arguments are enclosed by [ ].
-
optional arguments are enclosed by < >.
MIB Navigator command conventions are as follows:
•
To abort the output or interrupt a process the escape character is ^C
(where ^ equals the Control key).
•
A slash (/) preceeding an OID issues that command from the root
directory regardless of where you are in the MIB. If no slash precedes
the OID the command issues from your current MIB location.
•
Dot notation (1.1.1.1) is equivalent to slash notation (1/1/1/1). Use
slash notation with the navigational commands, and the dot notation
with the built-in commands that are using SNMP to access and manage
network devices.
MIB Navigation Commands are listed in the format shown below:
command:
Syntax:
This entry provides the format that the MIB
Navigator command requires. It indicates
