Hi,                                               Monday (23 April 2007)

[For review at the PWG Piscataway meeting on Thursday (26 April 2007)]


I've just posted my second working draft of Counter MIB v2 at:

  ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/wd/wd-wimscountmib20-20070423.mib
    - ASN.1 only - compiles without warnings in Epilogue and SMICng

  ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/wd/wd-wimscountmib20-20070423.pdf
    - PDF - color-highlighted ASN.1 of MIB


Summary:
--------
(1) Counter MIB v2 supports monitoring of the counters and _state_ of
    all imaging services and subunits independent of any other MIB (but
    coherent with Printer MIB, Finisher MIB, and Host Resources MIB).

(2) Counter MIB v2 resolves the main problem of MFP alerts (ambiguity
    about which services are affected when a given subunit has a fault).

(3) Counter MIB v2 adds objects to three existing tables and adds one
    new table, so it must pass through the full PWG Process:  Initial,
    Interim, Prototype, Stable, PWG Last Call, and PWG Formal Vote.

(4) Counter MIB v2 is 100% backward compatible with Counter MIB v1 (all
    new objects have new compliance groups).

The only change from the previous version was clarifying conformance
statements with respect to Host Resources MIB - thanks to Walt Filbrich!

Comments?

Cheers,
- Ira

Change Log (from REVISION clause in body of MIB)

23 April 2007 - Counter MIB v2 - Working Draft

* Clarified conformance requirements for icKeyServiceIndex and
    icServiceIndex with respect to Host Resources MIB.


31 March 2007 - Counter MIB v2 - Working Draft

* Added two new textual conventions:
    IcServiceStateTC, per WIMS Protocol (PWG 5106.2), based on
        IPP/1.1 (RFC 2911) and Host Resources MIB (RFC 2790);
    IcSubunitStatusTC, per WIMS Protocol (PWG 5106.2), based on
        PrtSubUnitStatusTC in Printer MIB (RFC 3805).
* Revised one existing textual convention:
    IcSubunitTypeTC, to add all finishing device types, based on
        FinDeviceTypeTC in Finisher MIB (RFC 3806).
* Added five new columnar objects to existing conceptual tables:
    icServiceState and icServiceStateMessage appended to
        icServiceTable, per WIMS Protocol (PWG 5106.2);
    icSubunitStatus and icSubunitStatusMessage appended to
        icSubunitTable, per WIMS Protocol (PWG 5106.2);
    icMediaUsedMediaAccountingKey appended to
        icMediaUsedTable, per PWG Abtract Counters (PWG 5106.1).
* Added one new conceptual table:
    icSubunitMapTable, to map services to their subunits.
* Added four new OBJECT-GROUPS:
    icSubunitMapV2Group (Optional);
    icServiceV2Group (Optional);
    icSubunitV2Group (Optional);
    icMediaUsedV2Group (Optional).
* In MODULE-COMPLIANCE icMIBCompliance, new OBJECT-GROUPs are all
    all in GROUP (not MANDATORY-GROUP) clauses.  The one new
    table and the six new objects are optional, i.e., this
    version is backward compatible with Counter MIB v1.
