Abstract Abstract
This memo defines a set of extensions which instrument RADIUS This memo defines a set of extensions, which instrument RADIUS
accounting client functions. These extensions represent a portion of accounting client functions. These extensions represent a portion of
the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management
protocols in the Internet community. Using these extensions IP-based protocols in the Internet community. Using these extensions IP-based
management stations can manage RADIUS accounting clients. management stations can manage RADIUS accounting clients.
This memo obsoletes RFC 2620 by deprecating the MIB table containing This memo obsoletes RFC 2620 by deprecating the MIB table containing
IPv4-only address formats and defining a new table to add support for IPv4-only address formats and defining a new table to add support for
version neutral IP address formats. The remaining MIB objects from version neutral IP address formats. The remaining MIB objects from
RFC 2620 are carried forward into this document. This memo also adds RFC 2620 are carried forward into this document. This memo also adds
UNITS and REFERENCE clauses to selected objects. UNITS and REFERENCE clauses to selected objects.
