Rhino 3.1 introduces a new model for defining static OIDs for SLEE components and their statistics parameter set types. The primary goal of the model is to ensure stability of OIDs and MIBs between releases of Rhino-based products and eliminate the need for remapping OIDs during product upgrades. This alleviates operational concerns regarding solution monitoring stability after version upgrades and simplifies the overall upgrade process. The new model also aims to simplify exposed SNMP statistics where possible.
This document refers to the new model as "static OIDs" or the "static OID model", and the pre-existing model as "legacy OIDs" or the "legacy OID model". The static OID model is the preferred model for all new product development. The legacy OID model remains present and supported in Rhino for backward compatibility.
You can enable both legacy and static OID models at the same time. The statistics parameter set type SNMP registration identifiers generated for deployed components differ between the two models, so no conflict occurs between the models.
For more information about assigning static OIDs with the static OID model, see the SNMP Static OID Development Guide.
