Subject: WG Action: Evolution of SNMP Working Group (eos) to conclude
The Evolution of SNMP Working Group (eos) in the Operations and Management Area
of the IETF has concluded.
The IESG contact persons are Randy Bush and Bert Wijnen.
The EoS WG has been closed. The WG could not get to consensus
on the set of 5 small work-items and even today, more than
2 years after being chartered, there seems to be no consensus
and/or wide community support to drive to conclusion on any
Below is some history.
- Chartered in Feb 2001
In Feb 2001, the Evolution Of SNMP (EOS) WG was created to
try and address 5 pretty small SNMP shortcomings.
The Goals and Milestones were set agressively by the ADs
and the WG chairs, but they were thought to be realistic.
- Supposed to be finished by Oct 2001
The WG was supposed to finish their work by October 2001
and we would then try to decide if a re-charter made sense.
- Activity during April-July 2001
Various WG internet-drafts appeared during these months.
But the WG was not able to converge and reach consensus on
the solutions for the SNMP problems that it set out to address.
- In mid 2002 there was some renewed activity... with complete new
individual internet-drafts that the WG considered.
- Before the fall 2002 IETF there was one new proposal on the table
Object Oriented Protocol Operations for
the Simple Network Management Protocol
For which the current document name is: draft-ietf-eos-oops-00.txt
- At the fall 2002 IETF, the WG was warned that consensus and progress
(and willingness to work on specs and implementations) was needed
in order for the WG to survive.
- But this new work item has been lingering around for too many
months as well, and there does not seem enough community consensus
and support to put enough effort into it.
- So the WG is being closed and the people working on the
draft-ietf-eos-oops-00.txt can continue to do so as individuals
if they want to pursue it further. The WG mailing list will be
kept around for a while and can be used for further discussions.
