Technical Summary

   This document describes a mechanism to allow IS-IS routing to quickly
   and accurately shift traffic away from either a point-to-point or
   multi-access LAN interface during network maintenance or other
   operational events.  This is accomplished by signaling adjacent IS-IS
   neighbors with a higher reverse metric, i.e., the metric towards the
   signaling IS-IS router.

Working Group Summary

   Normal WG process.

Document Quality

   There is vendor and operator interest in this technology. The document 
   had a good amount of review by the WG, changes were requested and 
   incorporated by the authors.
