Subject: Static fdb table in q-bridge MIB?

Hi All,

I was just about to make an update to the table for defining static fdb
entries in the new q-bridge MIB based on .1ah clause 12.7.7.  However,
there is no such table either in the new MIB, nor in the q-bridge MIB
from RFC 4363.  However, in RFC 4363, there is a reference to an object
called 'dot1qStaticAddress' in the DESCRIPTION of dot1qTpFdbStatus in
the dot1qTpFdbTable.  Does anybody know if there is a reason why there
is no such table in RFC 4363?  Does it make sense to add such a table in
the new q-bridge MIB?

Note that there is an equivalent table in the original bridge-mib,
called the dot1dStaticTable.  Of course, that table doesn't have a fid
in the index.  Seems like that table was lost in the translation to the
q-bridge mib.

Re: FW: Static fdb table in q-bridge MIB?

The dot1dStaticTable was replaced in the q-bridge mib with two tables:
dot1qStaticUnicastTable and dot1qStaticMulticastTable.  The reason for
this is because the definitions of these tables in the 802.1Q spec had
different indices.  The unicast table is indexed by FDB ID, the
multicast table is indexed by VLAN ID.  Both of these tables are
defined in RFC 4363.
