Cisco Distributed Director MIB.
The Cisco Distributed Director provides global Internet
scalability and increased performance as seen by end
users while reducing transmission costs and maximizing
end-to-end access performance as seen by clients.
The Cisco Distributed Director provides the ability to
perform load distribution in a sophisticated manner that
takes server availability, relative client-to-server
topological proximities ('distances'), server load, and
client-to-server link latency into account to determine
the 'best' server. Having these provisions means that
users need only a single subdomain name or Universal
Resource Locator(URL)-embedded hostname for accessing a
distributed set of servers. This eliminates the need for
end-users to choose a server from a list of possible
sites. The Cisco Distributed Director leverages the
intelligence in the network to automatically,
dynamically, and efficiently pick the 'best' server for
the user, using a single hostname or DNS subdomain name.
This MIB specification contains definitions of
management information of the Distributed Director that
can be remotely monitored and controlled. The
information includes various statistics, configurations
and status of Distributed Director.
