We're putting the cart in front of the horse...
Defining a good read-write MIB module
does not necessarily imply using *all* the
SNMP framework's modules.
Per RFC 2570:
The specifications of the Internet Standard Management Framework are
based on a modular architecture. This framework is more than just a
protocol for moving data. It consists of:
* a data definition language,
* definitions of management information (the Management
Information Base, or MIB),
* a protocol definition, and
* security and administration.
To this end, the framework was architected
with a protocol-independent data definition language and Management
Information Base along with a MIB-independent protocol.
I believe a good read-write MIB module (and I stress good) would be ideal
to help define the common mgmt nerd-knobs to be found in a CLI
config/show cmd set or other non-IETF standard mgmt interface as well.
