Hi Pete,                                      Thursday (9 December 2004)

Here are those definitions:

Device:  An abstract object that represents a hardware component of a
network host system that supports one imaging function (e.g., copy) and
may be associated with one or more upstream Service objects.  A Device
object exposes for monitoring and management every associated Subunit
(e.g., Marker) on that network host system.

    Note:  This document defines the Device object as an extension and
    generalization of the Printer object defined in the Printer MIB
    (RFC 1759/3805).


Service:  An abstract object that represents a software component of a
network host system that supports one or more imaging functions (e.g.,
copy, print, and scan) and may be associated with one or more downstream
Device objects.  A Service object exposes for monitoring and management
every associated Subunit (e.g., Channel) on that network host system.

    Note:  This document defines the Service object as an extension and
    generalization of the Printer object defined in the Internet
    Printing Protocol (IPP) Model and Semantics (RFC 2566/2911).


System:  An abstract object that represents a network host system and
may support one or more configured Services or Devices on that network
host system.  A System object exposes for monitoring and management
every configured Subunit (e.g., Console) on that network host system.

    Note:  This document defines the System object as an extension and
    generalization of the System group in IETF MIB-II (RFC 1213) and the
    System group in IETF Host Resources MIB (RFC 1514/2790).


Cheers,
- Ira

Ira,

Do you have definitions for device, system & service for section 2.2 of 
the counter spec?  I have it down as an action item for you from the
last review of the spec.  Also note my new email address.
