    Hi folks, Tuesday (18 April 2000)

    Very small Job Monitoring MIB traps (for IPP Notifications over SNMP).

    jmDeviceEventV2Event NOTIFICATION-TYPE
        OBJECTS {

        OBJECTS {

    jmJobProgressV2Event NOTIFICATION-TYPE
        OBJECTS {

    I propose to write this all up in a revised Internet-Draft in the near

    Changes from previous proposal of 22 May 2000:

    1) Revised INDEX clauses of tables to always use single-level indices.

    2) Added 'jmDeviceEventDeviceIndex', 'jmJobEventJobSetIndex', and
        'jmJobEventJobIndex' pointer objects to event tables but not traps.

    3) Deleted '...DeviceIsAcceptingJobs' from event table and trap
        because it's redundant with a value of '...DeviceStateReasons'.

    4) Deleted '...NotifyCharset', '...NotifyLanguage', and '...NotifyText'
        from event tables and traps because they're incompatible with SNMP
        libraries (which assemble trap bindings and then send the IDENTICAL
        trap to all registered destinations) - in IPP, each destination MAY
        request a DIFFERENT value of '...NotifyLanguage', etc.

    5) Deleted '...UpTime' from traps because 'sysUpTime' is included
        in SNMPv1 and SNMPv2/SNMPv3 traps by all conforming SNMP agents.

    6) Deleted '...DateTime' from traps and event tables because it's
        redundant with '...UpTime' objects.

    7) Deleted 'jmJobExtraTable' (for 'notify-attributes' from IPP) as it's
        redundant with attributes in 'jmJobTable' and 'jmAttributeTable'.

    8) Renamed '...TriggerEvent' to '...NotifyEvent' for clarity (and I
        think this is the agreement for all IPP notification methods).
