Bridge MIB (Management Information Base) is a specification for use with network managing protocols in TCP/IP based internets. In particular, it defines objects for managing bridges based on the IEEE 802.1d draft standard between LAN segments. Managed objects are accessed via the Management Information Base or MIB. Objects in the MIB are defined using the subset of Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) defined in the SMI. In particular, each object is named by an OBJECT IDENTIFIER, an administratively assigned name, which specifies an object type. The object type together with an object instance serves to uniquely identify a specific instantiation of the object.
