I have reviewed draft-ietf-v6ops-reducing-ra-energy-consumption-02 as part of the Operational directorate's ongoing effort to review all IETF

documents being processed by the IESG.  These comments were written

with the intent of improving the operational aspects of the IETF

drafts. Comments that are not addressed in last call may be included

in AD reviews during the IESG review.  Document editors and WG chairs

should treat these comments just like any other last call comments.


Short Summary

This document discusses how batter power constrained device is impacted by large amount of route advertisement and how to alleviate such impact.


It is well written and ready for publication. There are no operational or management concerns in this document. Here are a few suggestion and
 editorial comments:



Section 4, last bullet:

s/ non-general-purpose/ dedicated




Section 5.1, bullet 2 said:


Administrators of networks that serve large numbers (tens or

hundreds) of battery-powered devices SHOULD enable this




which behavior should be enabled? “Responding to Router Solicitations

with unicast Router Advertisements” or the behavior described by bullet 1?

Please make this clear.




Section 5.1, bullet 3:

The word




repeats twice, it is not necessary.
