The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and the Internet
Standard Management Framework are widely
used for the management of communication devices, creating a need to
specify SNMP access (including access to SNMP MIB object
instances) from non-SNMP management environments.  For example,
when out-of-band IP management is used via a separate management
interface (e.g., for a device that does not support in-band IP
access), a uniform way to indicate how to
contact the device for management is needed.  Uniform Resource
Identifiers (URIs) fit this need well, as they allow a single text
string to indicate a management access communication endpoint for a
wide variety of IP-based protocols.

This document defines a URI scheme so that SNMP can be designated
as the protocol used for management.  The scheme also allows a URI
to designate one or more MIB object instances.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the
"Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution
of this memo is unlimited.
