            privileges than the community string used to access this
            object.

            A compliant SNMP agent may wish to conserve naming scopes by
            representing multiple logical entities in a single 'default'
            naming scope.  This is possible when the logical entities
            represented by the same value of entLogicalCommunity have no
            object instances in common.  For example, 'bridge1' and
            'repeater1' may be part of the main naming scope, but at
            least one additional community string is needed to represent
            'bridge2' and 'repeater2'.

            Logical entities 'bridge1' and 'repeater1' would be
            represented by sysOREntries associated with the 'default'
            naming scope.

            For agents not accessible via SNMPv1 or SNMPv2C, the value
            of this object is the empty string.  This object may also
            contain an empty string if a community string has not yet
            been assigned by the agent, or no community string with
            suitable access rights can be returned for a particular SNMP
            request.

            Note that this object is deprecated. Agents which implement
            SNMPv3 access should use the entLogicalContextEngineID and
            entLogicalContextName objects to identify the context
            associated with each logical entity.  SNMPv3 agents may
            return a zero-length string for this object, or may continue
            to return a community string (e.g., tri-lingual agent
            support)."

entLPMappingTable OBJECT-TYPE

    STATUS      current
    DESCRIPTION
            "This table contains zero or more rows of logical entity to
            physical equipment associations. For each logical entity
            known by this agent, there are zero or more mappings to the
            physical resources which are used to realize that logical
            entity.

            An agent should limit the number and nature of entries in
            this table such that only meaningful and non-redundant
            information is returned. For example, in a system which
            contains a single power supply, mappings between logical
            entities and the power supply are not useful and should not
            be included.

            Also, only the most appropriate physical component which is
            closest to the root of a particular containment tree should
            be identified in an entLPMapping entry.

            For example, suppose a bridge is realized on a particular
            module, and all ports on that module are ports on this
            bridge. A mapping between the bridge and the module would be
            useful, but additional mappings between the bridge and each
            of the ports on that module would be redundant (since the
            entPhysicalContainedIn hierarchy can provide the same
            information). If, on the other hand, more than one bridge
            was utilizing ports on this module, then mappings between
            each bridge and the ports it used would be appropriate.

            Also, in the case of a single backplane repeater, a mapping
            for the backplane to the single repeater entity is not
            necessary."

    DESCRIPTION
            "The value of this object identifies the logical entity
            which defines the naming scope for the associated instance
            of the 'entAliasMappingIdentifier' object.

            If this object has a non-zero value, then it identifies the
            logical entity named by the same value of entLogicalIndex.

            If this object has a value of zero, then the mapping between
            the physical component and the alias identifier for this
            entAliasMapping entry is associated with all unspecified
            logical entities. That is, a value of zero (the default
            mapping) identifies any logical entity which does not have
            an explicit entry in this table for a particular
            entPhysicalIndex/entAliasMappingIdentifier pair.

            For example, to indicate that a particular interface (e.g.,
            physical component 33) is identified by the same value of
            ifIndex for all logical entities, the following instance
            might exist:

                    entAliasMappingIdentifier.33.0 = ifIndex.5

            In the event an entPhysicalEntry is associated differently
            for some logical entities, additional entAliasMapping
            entries may exist, e.g.:

                    entAliasMappingIdentifier.33.0 = ifIndex.6

Top      Up      ToC       Page 32 
                    entAliasMappingIdentifier.33.4 =  ifIndex.1
                    entAliasMappingIdentifier.33.5 =  ifIndex.1
                    entAliasMappingIdentifier.33.10 = ifIndex.12

            Note that entries with non-zero entAliasLogicalIndexOrZero
            index values have precedence over any zero-indexed entry. In
            this example, all logical entities except 4, 5, and 10,
            associate physical entity 33 with ifIndex.6."

    DESCRIPTION
            "The value of this object identifies a particular conceptual
            row associated with the indicated entPhysicalIndex and
            entLogicalIndex pair.

            Since only physical ports are modeled in this table, only
            entries which represent interfaces or ports are allowed.  If
            an ifEntry exists on behalf of a particular physical port,
            then this object should identify the associated 'ifEntry'.
            For repeater ports, the appropriate row in the
            'rptrPortGroupTable' should be identified instead.

            For example, suppose a physical port was represented by
            entPhysicalEntry.3, entLogicalEntry.15 existed for a
            repeater, and entLogicalEntry.22 existed for a bridge.  Then
            there might be two related instances of
            entAliasMappingIdentifier:
               entAliasMappingIdentifier.3.15 == rptrPortGroupIndex.5.2
               entAliasMappingIdentifier.3.22 == ifIndex.17
            It is possible that other mappings (besides interfaces and
            repeater ports) may be defined in the future, as required.

            Bridge ports are identified by examining the Bridge MIB and
            appropriate ifEntries associated with each 'dot1dBasePort',
            and are thus not represented in this table."

            An agent should not generate more than one entConfigChange
            'notification-event' in a given time interval (five seconds
            is the suggested default).  A 'notification-event' is the
            transmission of a single trap or inform PDU to a list of
            notification destinations.

            If additional configuration changes occur within the
            throttling period, then notification-events for these

            configuration changes occurred since the start of the
            throttling period. In such a case, another throttling period
            is started right away.

            An NMS should periodically check the value of

4.  Usage Examples

   The following sections iterate the instance values for two example
   networking devices. These examples are kept simple to make them more
   understandable. Auxiliary components, such as fans, sensors, empty
   slots, and sub-modules are not shown, but might be modeled in real
   implementations.

4.1.  Router/Bridge

   A router containing two slots.  Each slot contains a 3 port
   router/bridge module. Each port is represented in the ifTable.  There
   are two logical instances of OSPF running and two logical bridges:

   A 3-slot Hub with 2 backplane ethernet segments.  Slot three is
   empty, and the remaining slots contain ethernet repeater modules.

   Note that this example assumes an older Repeater MIB implementation,
   (RFC 1516 [RFC1516]) rather than the new Repeater MIB (RFC 2108
   [RFC2108]).  The new version contains an object called '

8.  Security Considerations

   There are a number of management objects defined in this MIB that
   have 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.

   There are a number of managed objects in this MIB that may contain
   sensitive information. These are:

Top      Up      ToC       Page 54 
      entPhysicalDescr
      entPhysicalVendorType
      entPhysicalHardwareRev
      entPhysicalFirmwareRev
      entPhysicalSoftwareRev
      entPhysicalSerialNum
      entPhysicalMfgName
      entPhysicalModelName

   These objects expose information about the physical entities within a
   managed system, which may be used to identify the vendor, model, and
   version information of each system component.

      entPhysicalAssetID

   This object can allow asset identifiers for various system components
   to be exposed, in the event this MIB object is actually configured by
   an NMS application.

      entLogicalDescr
      entLogicalType

   These objects expose the type of logical entities present in the
   managed system.

      entLogicalCommunity

   This object exposes community names associated with particular
   logical entites within the system.

      entLogicalTAddress
      entLogicalTDomain

   These objects expose network addresses that can be used to
   communicate with an SNMP agent on behalf of particular logical
   entities within the system.

      entLogicalContextEngineID
      entLogicalContextName

   These objects identify the authoritative SNMP engine that contains
   information on behalf of particular logical entities within the
   system.

   It is thus important to control even GET access to these objects and
   possibly to even encrypt the values of these object when sending them
   over the network via SNMP.  Not all versions of SNMP provide features
   for such a secure environment.

Top      Up      ToC       Page 55 
   SNMPv1 by itself is not a secure environment.  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.

   It is recommended that the implementers consider the security
   features as provided by the SNMPv3 framework.  Specifically, the use
   of the User-based Security Model RFC 2574 [RFC2574] and the View-
   based Access Control Model RFC 2575 [RFC2575] is recommended.

   It is then a customer/user responsibility to ensure that the SNMP
   entity giving access to an instance of this MIB, 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.
