In this chapter, we examine one of the many standard tools used to manage MPLS networks. The MPLS Forward Equivalency Class (FEC) to Next-Hop Label Forwarding Entry (NHLFE) MIB (MPLS-FTN MIB) was defined with the specific function of exposing the destination prefix to next-hop label mapping for all ingress points of LSPs on an MPLS LER. In short, the MPLS-FTN MIB provides the user with a snapshot of how any particular LSR has been programmed to accept traffic and assign this traffic to an LSP, and then which MPLS next-hop to forward it to.
