   vdslPhysCurrAtn OBJECT-TYPE
       SYNTAX       Gauge32 (0..255)
       UNITS        "0.25dBm"
       MAX-ACCESS   read-only

           "Measured difference in the total power transmitted by
           the peer Vtu and the total power received by this Vtu.
           The effective range is 0 to +63.75 dB."

It should say:

UNITS statement (dBm) does not match units appearing in DESCRIPTION text (dB).

I think 'dB' are the right units for the objects above, but one can check that. Anyway, it is clear that there should not be the existing mismatch.

Same problem for more MIB objects in the RFC.



According to the discussions on the WG list, a new Errata report will be submitted including the complete list of objects affected by this change request.
