Technical Summary This document describes the OSPFv3 graceful restart. The OSPFv3 graceful restart is identical to OSPFv2 except for the differences described in this document. These differences include the format of the grace Link State Advertisements (LSA) and other considerations. Working Group Summary Broad consent with no dissent reported. This is very similar to the graceful restart mechanism used with OSPFv2 (which is already an RFC and is implemented and deployed). Document Quality I (Ross) think that there are implementations, but Dave or I will double-check prior to the telechat. Personnel Abhay Roy is the document shepherd. Dave Ward is the responsible AD. The IANA assignments share the same IANA registry as used by the existing OSPFv2 graceful restart RFC.
