Conventions The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL", when they appear in this document, are to be interpreted as described in BCP 14, RFC 2119 [RFC2119]. 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 [RFC3410]. 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 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [RFC2580]. Heard Standards Track [Page 2]
RFC 3637 Ethernet WIS Objects September 2003 3. Overview The objects defined in this memo are used in conjunction with objects defined in the Interfaces Group MIB [RFC2863], the SONET/SDH Interface MIB [RFC3592], and the 802.3 MAU MIB [RFC3636] to manage the Ethernet Wide Area Network (WAN) Interface Sublayer (WIS) defined in [802.3ae]. The WIS contains functions to perform OC-192c/VC-4-64c framing and scrambling. It resides between the Physical Coding Sublayer (PCS) and the Physical Medium Attachment (PMA) sublayer within a 10GBASE-W 10 Gb/s WAN-compatible physical layer device (PHY) and may be used in conjunction with any of the PCS, PMA, and Physical Medium Dependent (PMD) sublayers defined in [802.3ae] for 10GBASE-W PHYs. Three types of 10GBASE-W PHYs are defined, distinguished by the type of optics employed: 10GBASE-SW, 10GBASE-LW, and 10GBASE-EW. The objects defined in this memo may be used to manage an Ethernet interface employing any type of 10GBASE-W PHY. They do not apply to any other kind of interface. In particular, they do not apply to so-called Ethernet Line Terminating Equipment (ELTE) residing within a SONET network element that uses the 10GBASE-W PMA/PMD sublayers but otherwise acts as SONET Line Terminating Equipment (LTE). The objects presented here -- along with those incorporated by reference from the Interfaces Group MIB, the SONET/SDH Interface MIB, and the 802.3 MAU MIB -- are intended to provide exact representations of the mandatory attributes in the oWIS managed object class (i.e., the members of the pWISBasic package) defined in Clause 30 and Annex 30A of [802.3ae]. They are also intended to provide approximate representations of the optional attributes (i.e., the members of the pWISOptional package). Some objects with no analogues in oWIS are defined to support WIS testing features required by Clause 50 of [802.3ae]. 3.1. Relationship to the SONET/SDH Interface MIB Since the Ethernet WAN Interface Sublayer was designed to be SONET- compatible, information similar to that provided by most of the members of the oWIS managed object class is available from objects defined in the SONET-MIB [RFC3592]. Thus, the MIB module defined in this memo is a sparse augmentation of the SONET-MIB -- in other words, every table defined here is an extension of some table in the SONET-MIB -- and its compliance statement REQUIRES that an agent implementing the objects defined in this memo also implement the relevant SONET-MIB objects. That includes all objects required by sonetCompliance2 as well as some that it leaves optional. It should be noted that some of the objects incorporated by reference from the SONET-MIB -- specifically, the threshold objects and interval counter objects -- provide only approximate representations Heard Standards Track [Page 3]
RFC 3637 Ethernet WIS Objects September 2003 of the corresponding oWIS attributes, as detailed in Section 3.6. An alternative approach would have been to define new objects to exactly match the oWIS definitions. That approach was rejected because the SONET-MIB objects are already used in deployed systems to manage the SONET sublayers of ATM over SONET and PPP over SONET interfaces, and it was deemed undesirable to use a different scheme to manage the SONET sublayers of 10 Gb/s WAN-compatible Ethernet interfaces. Note that the approach adopted by this memo requires no hardware support beyond that mandated by [802.3ae] subclause 50.3.11. 3.2. Relationship to the Ethernet-like Interface MIB An interface which includes the Ethernet WIS is, by definition, an Ethernet-like interface, and an agent implementing the objects defined in this memo MUST implement the objects required by the dot3Compliance2 compliance statement in the EtherLike-MIB. 3.3. Relationship to the 802.3 MAU MIB Support for the mauModIfCompl3 compliance statement of the MAU-MIB [RFC3636] is REQUIRED for all Ethernet-like interfaces. The MAU-MIB is needed in order to allow applications to control and/or determine the media type in use. That is important for devices than can support both the 10GBASE-R 10 Gb/s LAN format (which does not include the WIS) and the 10GBASE-W 10 Gb/s WAN format (which does include the WIS). The MAU-MIB also provides the means to put a device in standby mode or to reset it; the latter may be used to re-initialize the WIS. 3.4. Use of the ifTable This section specifies how the ifTable, as defined in [RFC2863], is used for the Ethernet WIS application. Heard Standards Track [Page 4]
RFC 3637 Ethernet WIS Objects September 2003 3.4.1. Layering Model Ethernet interfaces that employ the WIS are layered as defined in [802.3ae]. The corresponding use of the ifTable [RFC2863] is shown in the figure below. _____________________________ _ | LLC Layer | | +-----------------------------+ | | MAC Layer | | +-----------------------------+ > 1 ifEntry | Reconciliation Sublayer | | ifType: ethernetCsmacd(6) +-----------------------------+ | | Physical Coding Sublayer | | +-----------------------------+ + | Path Layer | > 1 ifEntry +-----------------------------+ + ifType: sonetPath(50) | Line Layer | | +-----------------------------+ | | Section Layer | > 1 ifEntry +-----------------------------+ | ifType: sonet(39) | Physical Medium Layer | | ----------------------------- - Figure 1 - Use of ifTable for an Ethernet WIS port The exact configuration and multiplexing of the layers is maintained in the ifStackTable [RFC2863] and in the ifInvStackTable [RFC2864]. 3.4.2. Use of ifTable for LLC Layer/MAC Layer/Reconciliation Sublayer/Physical Coding Sublayer The ifTable MUST be used as specified in [RFC3635] and [RFC3636] for the LLC Layer/MAC Layer/Reconciliation Sublayer/Physical Coding Sublayer. 3.4.3. Use of ifTable for SONET/SDH Path Layer The ifTable MUST be used as specified in [RFC3592] for the SONET/SDH Path Layer. The value of ifHighSpeed is set to 9585. ifSpeed reports a value of 4294967295. 3.4.4. Use of ifTable for SONET/SDH Medium/Section/Line Layer The ifTable MUST be used as specified in [RFC3592] for the SONET/SDH Medium/Section/Line Layer. The value of ifHighSpeed is set to 9953. ifSpeed reports a value of 4294967295. Heard Standards Track [Page 5]
RFC 3637 Ethernet WIS Objects September 2003 3.5. SONET/SDH Terminology The SONET/SDH terminology used in [802.3ae] is mostly the same as in [RFC3592], but there are a few differences. In those cases the definitions in [802.3ae] take precedence. The specific differences are as follows. Unequipped This defect is not defined by [802.3ae]. An implementation that supports it SHOULD report it by setting the sonetPathUnequipped bit in the appropriate instance of sonetPathCurrentStatus. Signal Label Mismatch This defect is called Payload Label Mismatch (PLM) in [802.3ae]. It is reported by setting both the sonetPathSignalLabelMismatch bit in the appropriate instance of sonetPathCurrentStatus (defined in [RFC3592]) and the etherWisPathPLM bit in the corresponding instance of etherWisPathCurrentStatus (defined below). Loss of Codegroup Delineation [802.3ae] defines Loss of Codegroup Delineation (LCD) as occurring when the Physical Coding Sublayer is unable to locate 64B/66B code group boundaries. There is no analogous defect defined in [RFC3592]. It is reported by setting the etherWisPathLCD bit in the appropriate instance of the object etherWisPathCurrentStatus defined below. STS-Path Remote Defect Indication [802.3ae] mandates the use of ERDI-P (Enhanced Remote Defect Indication - Path) defined in [T1.231] to signal remote server defects (triggered by path AIS or path LOP) and remote payload defects (triggered by Payload Label Mismatch or Loss of Codegroup Delineation). [RFC3592] defines the one-bit RDI-P (Remote Defect Indication - Path), which signals remote server detects (i.e., path AIS and path LOP) only. An implementation of the MIB module defined in this memo MUST set the sonetPathSTSRDI bit in the appropriate instance of sonetPathCurrentStatus when it receives an ERDI-P server defect indication from the remote end. Both ERDI-P payload defects and ERDI-P server defects are reported in the object etherWisFarEndPathCurrentStatus defined below. Heard Standards Track [Page 6]
RFC 3637 Ethernet WIS Objects September 2003 Path Coding Violations In [802.3ae] the path layer CV count is based on block errors and not BIP-8 errors, i.e., it is incremented only once for each B3 byte that indicates incorrect parity, regardless of the number of bits in error. Note that Section 8.4.5.1 of [T1.231] allows either path BIP-8 errors or path block errors to be used for the path layer error count. 3.6. Mapping of IEEE 802.3 Managed Objects This section contains the mapping between oWIS managed objects defined in [802.3ae] and managed objects defined in this document and in associated MIB modules, i.e., the IF-MIB [RFC2863], the SONET-MIB [RFC3592], and the MAU-MIB [RFC3636].

Note: despite the semantic differences between the threshold objects and counter objects imported from the SONET-MIB and the corresponding IEEE 802.3 objects, the hardware support mandated by [802.3ae] subclause 50.3.11 suffices for both. See Appendix A for details. 3.7. Mapping of SNMP Objects to WIS Station Management Registers Some of the objects defined in this memo or incorporated by reference from the SONET-MIB [RFC3592] or the MAU-MIB [RFC3636] require WIS-specific hardware support. [802.3ae] subclause 50.3.11 specifies WIS management interface requirements, including a required subset of the WIS Management Data Input/Output (MDIO) registers defined in [802.3ae] subclause 45.2.2. The table below provides a cross- reference between those managed objects and the WIS MDIO registers from the subset in [802.3ae] subclause 50.3.11 required to support them. Note that the MDIO interface is optional; however, if it is not implemented, then the capabilities of the required register subset must be provided by other means.

Structure of the MIB Module Four tables are defined in this MIB module. 3.8.1. etherWisDeviceTable The purpose of this table is to define managed objects to control the WIS test pattern mode. These objects are required to support mandatory and optional WIS test features specified in [802.3ae] subclause 50.3.8. Heard Standards Track [Page 14]
RFC 3637 Ethernet WIS Objects September 2003 The etherWisDeviceTable is a sparse augmentation of the sonetMediumTable of the SONET-MIB -- in other words, for each entry in the etherWisDeviceTable there MUST be an entry in the sonetMediumTable and the same ifIndex value MUST be used for both entries. 3.8.2. etherWisSectionCurrentTable The purpose of this table is to define managed objects for the transmitted and received section trace messages (J0 byte). The etherWisSectionCurrentTable is a sparse augmentation of the sonetSectionCurrentTable of the SONET-MIB -- in other words, for each entry in the etherWisSectionCurrentTable there MUST be an entry in the sonetSectionCurrentTable and the same ifIndex value MUST be used for both entries. 3.8.3. etherWisPathCurrentTable The purpose of this table is to define managed objects for the current WIS path layer status and for the transmitted and received path trace messages (J1 byte). The path layer status object is provided because the WIS supports some near-end path status conditions that are not reported in sonetPathCurrentStatus. The etherWisPathCurrentTable is a sparse augmentation of the sonetPathCurrentTable of the SONET-MIB -- in other words, for each entry in the etherWisPathCurrentTable there MUST be an entry in the sonetPathCurrentTable and the same ifIndex value MUST be used for both entries. 3.8.4. etherWisFarEndPathCurrentTable The purpose of this table is to define a managed object for the current status of the far end of the path. This object is provided because the WIS supports some far-end path status conditions that are not reported in sonetPathCurrentStatus. The etherWisFarEndPathCurrentTable is a sparse augmentation of the sonetFarEndPathCurrentTable of the SONET-MIB -- in other words, for each entry in the etherWisFarEndPathCurrentTable there MUST be an entry in the sonetFarEndPathCurrentTable and the same ifIndex value MUST be used for both entries.

RFC 3637 Ethernet WIS Objects September 2003 7. Security Considerations There are five managed objects defined in this MIB module that have a MAX-ACCESS clause of read-write: etherWisDeviceTxTestPatternMode, etherWisDeviceRxTestPatternMode, etherWisDeviceRxTestPatternErrors, etherWisSectionCurrentJ0Transmitted, and etherWisPathCurrentJ1Transmitted. Writing to these objects can have the following potentially disruptive effects on network operation: o changing the transmit or receive test pattern mode or modifying the accumulated error count from a PRBS31 pattern test on an administratively disabled 10GBASE-W interface, which can interfere with an in-progress pattern test; o modifying the transmitted section trace and/or path trace message on an operational 10GBASE-W interface, which can cause connectivity alarms to be raised at the remote of the link. The user of this MIB module must therefore be aware that support for SET operations in a non-secure environment without proper protection can have a negative effect on network operations. The readable objects in this MIB module (i.e., those with MAX-ACCESS other than not-accessible) may be considered sensitive in some environments since, collectively, they provide information about the performance of network interfaces and can reveal some aspects of their configuration. In such environments it is important to control even GET and NOTIFY access to these objects and possibly even to encrypt their values when sending them over the network via SNMP. 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 [RFC3410], 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.

RFC 3637 Ethernet WIS Objects September 2003 Appendix A: Collection of Performance Data Using WIS MDIO Registers The purpose of this appendix is to illustrate how the WIS MDIO registers specified in [802.3ae] subclause 45.2.2 (and more specifically the subset required by [802.3ae] subclause 50.3.11) can be used to collect performance data either according to the conventions adopted by this document or according to the conventions specified in [802.3ae] Clause 30. For an agent implementing the SNMP managed objects required by this document the first step in collecting WIS performance data would be to poll the 10G WIS status 3 register and the various error count registers (10G WIS section BIP error count, 10G WIS line BIP errors, 10G WIS far end line BIP errors, 10G WIS path block error count, and 10G WIS far end path block error count) once per second. The 10G WIS status 3 register bits are all latched until read and so would indicate whether a given defect occurred any time during the previous second. The error count registers roll over modulo 2^16 or 2^32, and so to find the number of errors within the previous second the agent would need to subtract (modulo 2^16 or 2^32) the current reading from the reading taken one second ago. Armed with that information, the agent could determine for any layer whether the one second interval was an errored second, a severely errored second (that requires comparison with a threshold unless a defect is present), or a severely errored frame second. Determining whether a given second is or is not part of unavailable time requires additional logic; the most straightforward and accurate method is the delay-line approach outlined in Appendix A of [RFC3592]. With that information available the agent would be able to determine by how much each current count should be incremented (including effects of inhibiting). Implementations that conform to [T1.231] would end each 15-minute interval on time-of-day clock 1/4 hour boundaries; if the delay-line approach is used then a time-of-day timestamp would accompany the one-second statistics. At the end of each interval the current registers would be pushed onto the history stack and then would be cleared. The xyxIntervalValidData flags would be set to False(2) if the number of samples was not between 890 and 910 or, in the case of far-end counts, if a near-end defect occurred during the just-completed interval (see [T1.231] Section 9.1.2.2 for details). An agent implementing the [802.3ae] Clause 30 oWIS objects could also start by polling the 10G WIS status 3 register and the various error count registers to find the defects and error counts for the previous second, and it could determine the number of errors and whether the second was an errored second, a severely errored second, or a severely errored frame second in the same manner as above. The rest of the process would simply be to increment the generalized non- resetable counters without consideration of any inhibiting rules. Heard Standards Track [Page 34]
