The letters stand for the title Request For Comment, which is the initial
stage in the process for creating Internet standards.
RFCs go through several stages of review and refinement before they are
adopted as final by the Internet community.

Have a look at for more information.

I'm not totally sure here, so take with with a bit of salt, hopefully
someone who is sure about it, reply's.

This defines that everything under .1.3.6 is included in the view, so when
doing a snmpwalk you get everything.

.1.3.6 is a snmp tree, for example:

Squid is under :
                 1 3 6 1 3 25 17

Those numbers are unique in the world. No one else should use for is from Squid.

This makes the community to view what's under squid (definied in the rules
above) is accessible with the communitystring public.
