Technical Summary The original IPv6 conceptual sending algorithm does not do load- sharing among equivalent IPv6 routers, and suggests schemes which can be problematic in practice. This document updates the conceptual sending algorithm so that traffic to different destinations can be distributed among routers in an efficient fashion. Working Group Summary The IPv6 working group has done extensive review of this document and this document reflects the consensus of the group. Protocol Quality This document has been reviewed by members of the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list and by the working group chairs. This document was reviewed for the IESG by Margaret Wasserman.
