RFC 3970 A Traffic Engineering (TE) MIB January 2005 1. Introduction This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the Internet community. In particular, it describes managed objects for Traffic Engineered (TE) Tunnels; for example, Multi-Protocol Label Switched Paths ([7], [8]). The MIB module defined by this memo allows one to configure TE Tunnels, to assign one or more paths to a Tunnel, and to monitor operational aspects of the Tunnel, such as the number of octets and packets that have passed through the Tunnel. As it stands, this MIB module can only be used to configure or monitor a TE Tunnel at its ingress. The ingress is then expected to use some protocol (such as RSVP-TE) to signal the other routers in the path the information they need to set up the tunnel. The extension of this module for use at other points of a Tunnel is for further study. 1.1. Specification of Requirements The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [1]. 2. The Internet-Standard Management Framework For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to Section 7 of RFC 3410 [8]. Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed the Management Information Base or MIB. MIB objects are generally accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the Structure of Management Information (SMI). This memo specifies a MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD 58, RFC 2578 [2], STD 58, RFC 2579 [3] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [4]. 3. Overview of the MIB Module The Traffic Engineering MIB module consists of four parts: 1) Traffic Engineering information, 2) a table of Traffic Engineering Tunnels, 3) a table of Paths that tunnels take, and 4) a table of Hops that make up a tunnel path. The MIB module also has statements for minimal and full compliance. Kompella Standards Track [Page 2]
RFC 3970 A Traffic Engineering (TE) MIB January 2005 The following subsections give an overview of each part. All objects are mandatory. For minimal compliance, all objects MAY be implemented read-only; for full compliance, all objects must be implemented to their stated MAX-ACCESS capabilities. Notifications are optional. 3.1. Traffic Engineering Information This part contains information about the Link State Protocols used to carry TE information, the signaling protocols used to set up Traffic Tunnels, the number of Traffic Tunnels that have been configured and that are operational, and a mapping of Administrative Group (called Resource Classes in [7]) numbers to names. 3.2. Traffic Tunnel Information This part contains a table of Traffic Tunnels and information about each one. This information includes the Tunnel name, its configuration information, its operational information, and the active path(s) that the Tunnel takes. Configuration information includes the end points of the Traffic Tunnel, and the number of configured paths for the Traffic Tunnel. Operational information includes the current state (up/down), the count of octets and packets sent on the Traffic Tunnel, how long it has been up, and how many state transitions the Traffic Tunnel has had. Operational path information includes the number of operational paths, the number of path changes, and when the last path change was. 3.3. Path Information A Tunnel is a logical entity. An instantiation of a Tunnel is one or more Paths; each Path has a route (also called Explicit Route) or sequence of hops. A Path is indexed by a dual index: The primary index is that of the Tunnel to which the Path belongs; the secondary index is that of the Path itself. The configured information for a Path consists of the constraints for the Path and a configured route. The operational information consists of the Path status, the computed route (i.e., the route that was computed to satisfy the constraints), and the actual path as recorded by the signaling protocol. Kompella Standards Track [Page 3]
RFC 3970 A Traffic Engineering (TE) MIB January 2005 3.4. Hop Information A path consists of a sequence of hops. A hop can be loose (meaning that the path eventually traverses the specified node) or strict (meaning that the specified node and possibly the link must be the next node in the path). A hop can be specified as an IPv4 address, an IPv6 address, an Autonomous System number or an unnumbered interface index [5]. The Hop Table contains all hops for all paths on a given router. It is organized as follows. There is a primary index that identifies a list of hops and a secondary index that identifies individual hops. Thus, to get the sequence of recorded hops for a path, one looks up the path's tePathRecordedRoute, which is a primary index into the Hop Table. Then to get the list of actual hops in order for the recorded path, one uses a secondary index of 1, 2, .... 3.5. Relationship with Other MIB Modules A TE Tunnel can extend objects from two other MIB modules; one is the Interfaces MIB [10], and the other is the IP Tunnel MIB [11]. The mechanism for doing so is to assign the TE Tunnel index (teTunnelIndex) with a valid ifIndex value in ifTable. If a TE Tunnel is deemed an interface, a new interface object is created and assigned an ifIndex value in ifTable. Then a TE Tunnel object is created, setting teTunnelIndex to the same value as the interface index. If (and only if) a TE Tunnel is considered an interface, it may also be considered an IP tunnel (if the encapsulation of the TE Tunnel is IP). In that case, the interface associated with the TE Tunnel should have its ifType set to tunnel(131). If a TE Tunnel is not considered an interface, then the TE Tunnel index (teTunnelIndex) SHOULD be set to a value at least 2^24, so that it is distinct from normal interfaces. 4. Creating, Modifying, and Deleting a TE Tunnel To create a TE Tunnel, one first obtains a free Tunnel index by using the object teNextTunnelIndex. One then creates the Tunnel, including all parameters, either as createAndGo or createAndWait. Then, TE Paths for this Tunnel can be created by using the teTunnelNextPathIndex object, again as createAndGo or createAndWait. A particular Path is computed and signaled when both the Path and the enclosing Tunnel have RowStatus 'active'. Kompella Standards Track [Page 4]
RFC 3970 A Traffic Engineering (TE) MIB January 2005 To build a Path's configured route, one first gets a free PathHop index by using teNextPathHopIndex, and then builds the route hop-by- hop using the secondary index, setting the AddrType, Address, and HopType for each Hop. Finally, one sets the tePathConfiguredRoute in the Path to the PathHop index obtained. Modifying certain properties of a TE Tunnel or a TE Path may require setting the RowStatus of the Tunnel (or Path) to 'notInService' before making the changes and then setting the RowStatus of the Tunnel (or Path) back to 'active' to re-signal all Paths of the Tunnel (or the modified Path). A TE Tunnel and all its Paths can be deleted by setting the Tunnel's RowStatus to 'destroy'. A specific Path within a Tunnel can be destroyed by setting that Path's RowStatus to 'destroy'. 5. MIB Specification This MIB module IMPORTs objects from RFCs 2578 [2], 2579 [3], 2580 [3], 3411 [6], and 3811 [5] and it also has REFERENCE clauses to RFCs 3209 [8] and 3212 [12].

Malis, "Constraint- Based LSP Setup using LDP", RFC 3212, January 2002. 7. Security Considerations This MIB module relates to the configuration and management of Traffic Engineering tunnels. The unauthorized manipulation of fields in the tables teAdminGroupTable, teTunnelTable, tePathTable, and tePathHopTable may lead to tunnel flapping, tunnel paths being changed, or traffic being disrupted. In addition, if these tables are read by unauthorized parties, the information can be used to trace traffic patterns, traffic volumes, and tunnel paths. This may be considered proprietary and confidential information by some providers. There are a number of management objects defined in this MIB module with a MAX-ACCESS clause of read-write and/or read-create. Such objects may be considered sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments. The support for SET operations in a non-secure environment without proper protection can have a negative effect on network operations. These are the tables and objects and their sensitivity/vulnerability: teAdminGroupTable: Changing this will affect the semantics of include and exclude constraints, and thus traffic takes unintended routes. teTunnelTable: Changing this affects many properties of traffic tunnels. tePathTable: Changing this affects the constraints (including bandwidth) of tunnel paths, as well as the status of the path. tePathHopTable: Changing this affects the route followed by a traffic tunnel path. Kompella Standards Track [Page 41]
RFC 3970 A Traffic Engineering (TE) MIB January 2005 Some of the readable objects in this MIB module (i.e., objects with a MAX-ACCESS other than not-accessible) may be considered sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments. It is thus important to control even GET and/or NOTIFY access to these objects and possibly to even encrypt the values of these objects when sending them over the network via SNMP. These are the tables and objects and their sensitivity/vulnerability: teTunnelTable: Describes tunnel endpoints and traffic volumes. tePathTable: Describes path properties. tePathHopTable: Describes path routes. SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 did not include adequate security. Even if the network itself is secure (for example by using IPSec), even then, there is no control as to who on the secure network is allowed to access and GET/SET (read/change/create/delete) the objects in this MIB module. It is RECOMMENDED that implementers consider the security features as provided by the SNMPv3 framework (see [9], section 8), including full support for the SNMPv3 cryptographic mechanisms (for authentication and privacy). Further, deployment of SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 is NOT RECOMMENDED. Instead, it is RECOMMENDED to deploy SNMPv3 and to enable cryptographic security. It is then a customer/operator responsibility to ensure that the SNMP entity giving access to an instance of this MIB module is properly configured to give access to the objects only to those principals (users) that have legitimate rights to indeed GET or SET (change/create/delete) them. Acknowledgments It was Tony Li's suggestion that the author embark on this MIB. Many thanks to him and to Der-Hwa Gan for their input and help. Many thanks, too, to Bert Wijnen for his incredible help, both with improving the correctness, structure, and readability of the MIB module, and with the text of the RFC. Thanks also to Adrian Farrel for his detailed review. Kompella Standards Track [Page 42]
