Hi all,

We have had a lot of discussion in thread "report flow contents". As you
see, there are many items, but I believe not all of them will be needed in
same time base or under same criteria. Thus, a mechanism to config Reports
by PCE via Action flow is needed. Here is sort of solution I want to

(1) think the contents listed by Xavi in thread "report flow contents" as a
part of MIB, and add a configuration field to each attribute, denoted as

(2) define ReportCriteria as a tuple (Criteria, CriteriaValue) . For
Criteria =TIME, CriteriaValue=500, means reporting in every 500ms.
Criteria = Index of RSSI attribute, CriterValue = some Threshold, means
reporting when RSSI is worse than the Threshold.

(3) In implementation, the ReportCriteria field in MIB will implemented as
events which drive Report Flow and Event Flow.

What do you think? Any input is welcome.
