Re: I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-ccamp-rsvp-restart-ext-03.txt
Version -03 is the updated version resulting from last-call comments.
A scalability concern was raised, where, the restarting node does not
support the mechanism in this I-D, but, one or more RSVP neighbors do.
This would result in unnecessary generation (and possible
retransmission) of RecoveryPath msgs by the neighbors, and, receive
processing of the RecoveryPath msg until the restarting node has to
decide to drop it. This may be a scalability issue when a large number
of LSPs are active on the restarting node.
The solution is to indicate the capability to transmit and receive
RecoveryPath msgs with 2 new bits in the Capability object.
Note: The above solution also addresses a similar concern raised
earlier, where, the restarting node support the extensions but one or
more of its neighbors do not. The restarting node would have to wait
until the end of the Recovery Period to revert to restart processing per
RFC3473. With an explicit advertisement of RecoveryPath capability, this
requirement no longer exists.
We (the co-authors) hope that a short last-call to review the above
change only is sufficient to progress the I-D. Please review and
A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

Title : Extensions to GMPLS RSVP Graceful Restart
Author(s) : A. Satyanarayana
Filename : draft-ietf-ccamp-rsvp-restart-ext-03.txt
Pages : 24
Date : 2005-7-19
This document describes extensions to the RSVP Graceful Restart
mechanisms defined in RFC 3473. The extensions enable the recovery
of RSVP signaling state based on the Path message last sent by the
node being restarted. Previously defined Graceful Restart
mechanisms, also called recovery from nodal faults, permit recovery
of signaling state from adjacent nodes when the data plane has
retained the associated forwarding state across a restart. These
mechanisms do not fully support signaling state recovery on ingress
nodes or recovery of all RSVP objects. The presented extensions use
the RSVP Hello extensions defined in RFC 3209, and extensions for
state recovery on nodal faults defined in RFC 3473. With the
presented extensions the restarting node can recover all previously
transmitted Path state including the Explicit Route Object and the
downstream (outgoing) interface identifiers. The extensions can also
be used to recover signaling state after the restart of an ingress
node. The extensions optionally support the use of Summary Refresh,
defined in RFC 2961, to reduce the number of messages exchanged
during the Recovery Phase when the restarting node has recovered
signaling state locally for one or more LSPs.
