I am often asked, “What MIB modules are IETF working groups developing?”. MIB modules are defined within the relevant working group and reviewed by a small cadre of IETF MIB doctors prior to publication as an RFC. The following provides a brief outline of and links to the current works-in-progress.

Note that Internet-Drafts are works-in-progress and expire when a subsequent revision is available, or six months after initial publication, whichever occurs first.

I am happy to discuss the usefulness and applicability of the below works-in-progress to your project. Just contact me with your project requirements and ideas.
