This memo contains an algorithmic description of the rules used by an RSVP implementation for processing messages. It is intended to clarify the version 1 RSVP protocol specification [RFC 2205]. These rules are decomposed into pieces which are contained inside of an abstract processing architecture. This document provides an updated version of the previous processing rules [RFC 2209]. It attempts to provide a description that is less dependent on the particular design choices made in the ISI reference implementation of RSVP.
