RFC 4669, "RADIUS Authentication Server MIB for IPv6", August 2006

Source of RFC: radext (ops)

Errata ID: 28

The DESCRIPTION clause of the radiusAuthServResetTime OBJECT-TYPE declaration says:

                "If the server has a persistent state (e.g., a process)
                 and supports a 'reset' operation (e.g., can be told to
                 re-read configuration files), this value will be the
                 time elapsed (in hundredths of a second) since the
                 server was 'reset.'

It should say:

                "If the server has a persistent state (e.g., a process)
                 and supports a 'reset' operation (e.g., can be told to
                 re-read configuration files), this value will be the
|                time elapsed (in centiseconds) since the
|                server was 'reset'. 

Notes:

The original description does not conform to the 'rational quoting' style required by the RFC authoring guidelines.

Also, why not use the common ISO-standard unit-multiple name, "centiseconds" (abbreviation: "cs"), instead of the long-winded "hundredths of a second" ?

This also applies to the DESCRIPTION clauses of
- radiusAuthServUpTime (RFC 4669, top of page 7),
