Management information bases (MIBs) are a collection of definitions, which
define the properties of the managed object within the device to be
managed. Every managed device keeps a database of values for each of the
definitions written in the MIB. It is not the actual database itself - it
is implementation dependant. Definition of the MIB conforms to the SMI
given in RFC 1155. Internet MIB is given in RFC 1213 sometimes
called the MIB-II

Fixes & Enhancements

1. staPortProtocolMigration OBJECT-TYPE
DESCRIPTION "When operating in RSTP (version 2) mode, writing TRUE(1)to this object forces this port to transmit RSTP
BPDUs. Any other operation on this object has no effect and it always returns FALSE(2) when read."

2. staPortAdminEdgePort OBJECT-TYPE

"The administrative value of the Edge
Port parameter. A value of TRUE(1)
indicates that this port should be
assumed as an edge-port and a value of FALSE(2) indicates
that this port should be assumed as a non-edge-port."

3. staPortOperEdgePort OBJECT-TYPE
"The operational value of the Edge Port
parameter. The object
is initialized to the value of
staPortAdminEdgePort and is set
FALSE when a BPDU is received."

4. staPortAdminPointToPoint OBJECT-TYPE
DESCRIPTION "The administrative point-to-
point status of the LAN segment
attached to this port. A value of forceTrue
(0) indicates that this port should always be
treated as if it is connected to a point-to-
point link. A value of forceFalse(1)indicates
that this port should be treated as having a
shared media connection. A value of auto(2)
indicates that this port is considered to
have a point-to-point link if it is an
Aggregator and all of its members are aggregatable, or if the
MAC entity is configured for full duplex operation, either
Through auto-negotiation or by management means."

5. staPortOperPointToPoint OBJECT-TYPE
"The operational point-to-point status of the LAN segment
attached to this port. It indicates whether a port is
considered to have a point-to-point connection or not.
The value is determined by management or by auto-detection,
as described in the staPortAdminPointToPoint object."

6. staPortLongPathCost OBJECT-TYPE
"The contribution of this port to the path cost (in 32
bits value) of paths towards the spanning tree root which
include this port.

This object is used to configure the spanning tree port
path cost in 32 bits value range when the
staPathCostMethod is long(2).

If the staPathCostMethod is short(1), this mib object is not

7. staProtocolType OBJECT-TYPE
DESCRIPTION "The version of Spanning Tree Protocol the bridge is
currently running. The value 'stp(1)' indicates the
Spanning Tree Protocol is as specified in IEEE 802.1D,'rstp(2)' indicates the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol is as specified in IEEE 802.1w and the value 'mstp(3)' indicates the Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol is as specified in IEEE 802.1s. New values may
be defined in the future as new or updated versions of the protocol become available."

8. staTxHoldCount OBJECT-TYPE
"The value used by the Port Transmit state machine to limit
the maximum transmission rate."

9. staPathCostMethod OBJECT-TYPE
DESCRIPTION "Indicates the type of spanning tree path cost mode
Configured on the switch. This mode applies to all
instances of the Spanning tree protocol running on
the switch. When the value of this MIB object is
changed, the path cost of all ports will be
reassigned to the default path cost values
based on the new spanning tree path cost mode and
the ports' speed. When the value of this MIB object
is set to long(2), the staPortLongPathCost MIB
object must be used to retrieve/configure
the spanning tree port path cost as a 32 bit value.
The set
