RE: action item to produce a list of Printer MIB properties and
For the meeting Thursday, I just uploaded two fun files to
(They aren't working documents, so I didn't think they belonged in wd/.)
A spreadsheet containing a list of all PrinterMIB v2 properties, and
some of their abstract containers, and my votes for priorities.
Question: what properties should be carried forward to a new CIM
PrintDevice class (whatever it is named)? Priority levels are A = Must
be visible. B = Nice to have but not essential; gravy. C = Don't
The responses are in three columns, A, B, and C, with an entry being
either blank or 1 (one). (Or a zero for irrelevant items that are just
SNMP structure, such as table headers.) I chose this weird
representation so that I could add up all the columns to see if the
numbers come out right, that is, did I forget to assign a priority to
one of them.
There are areas for several other of the regular participants to add
their priorities, too, and comments, and we can combine and discuss the
A brief text (MS Word) document giving hints at the reasoning that I
used in coming up with the priorities I assigned. What is the target
set of printers that I aimed for, what is important (to me, at least) to
sense, monitor, or manage about those printers, etc.
Please remember, in this exercise, we can always add properties later,
through a relatively painless CR process, so I am trying to aim low for
this first pass.
Happy reading. Thanks.
