Source of RFC: ccamp (rtg)

Section MIB says:

gmplsInterfaceRsvpHelloPeriod OBJECT-TYPE
  SYNTAX       Unsigned32
  UNITS        "milliseconds"
  MAX-ACCESS   read-create
  STATUS       current
  DESCRIPTION
    "Period, in milliseconds, between sending Resource Reservation
     Protocol (RSVP) Hello messages on this interface.  A value of 0
     indicates that no Hello messages should be sent on this
     interface.

     This object is only valid if gmplsInterfaceSignalingCaps has no
     bits set or includes the rsvpGmpls bit."
  REFERENCE
    "1. RSVP-TE: Extensions to RSVP for LSP Tunnels, RFC 3209,
        section 5.
     2. Generalized MPLS Signaling - RSVP-TE Extensions, RFC 3473,
        section 9.3."
  DEFVAL { 3000 }
::= { gmplsInterfaceEntry 2 }

It should say:

gmplsInterfaceRsvpHelloPeriod OBJECT-TYPE
  SYNTAX       Unsigned32
  UNITS        "milliseconds"
  MAX-ACCESS   read-create
  STATUS       current
  DESCRIPTION
    "Period, in milliseconds, between sending Resource Reservation
     Protocol (RSVP) Hello messages on this interface.  A value of 0
     indicates that no Hello messages should be sent on this
     interface.

     This object is only valid if gmplsInterfaceSignalingCaps has no
     bits set or includes the rsvpGmpls bit."
  REFERENCE
    "1. RSVP-TE: Extensions to RSVP for LSP Tunnels, RFC 3209,
        section 5.
     2. Generalized MPLS Signaling - RSVP-TE Extensions, RFC 3473,
        section 9.3."
  DEFVAL { 5 }
::= { gmplsInterfaceEntry 2 }

Notes:

The default value is changed. The default value specified in the RFC is 5ms. Section 5.3 states:

This value MAY be configured on a per neighbor basis. The default value is 5 ms.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
After discussion on the CCAMP mailing list it was agreed that the MIB module text is as intended, and is deliberately different from the value in the protocol specification.
