A configuration management MIB, EXTREME-CFGMGMT-MIB, is introduced to help facilitate this functionality. The ability to query configuration activity and to perform switch management operations can be done by using the tables, scalars, and traps supported in the configure management, and the system (EXTREME-SYSTEM-MIB) MIBs.
