The IESG contact persons are Alvaro Retana, Martin Vigoureux and Deborah Brungard. A URL of this Internet Draft is: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-lsr-isis-rfc7810bis/
Technical Summary This document describes extensions to IS-IS Traffic Engineering Extensions (RFC 5305) such that network-performance information can be distributed and collected in a scalable fashion. The information distributed using IS-IS TE Metric Extensions can then be used to make path-selection decisions based on network performance. Note that this document only covers the mechanisms with which network-performance information is distributed. The mechanisms for measuring network performance or acting on that information, once distributed, are outside the scope of this document. Working Group Summary This bis draft update to RFC7810 was created out of an errata submitted that pointed out errors in the definition of certain bandwidth related sub-TLVs. There was a quick and unanimous decision to address this error by publishing this bis update. The specific changes are outlined in the Appendix. Document Quality The RFC7810 published over two years ago has at least two known implementations. There is no change to the technical solution in this update. The updated bis draft has identical content to RFC7810 except for the changes for fixing of the error in encoding and highlighting the changes in the appendix. Personnel Ketan Talaulikar is the Document Shepherd. Alvaro Retana is the Responsible Area Director.
