Technical Summary

   This document examines address resolution issues related to the
   massive scaling of data centers.  Our initial scope is relatively
   narrow.  Specifically, it focuses on address resolution (ARP and ND)
   within the data center.

Working Group Summary

   Document was a result of WG participants’ contributions, with support 
   of research institute’s collection of data center ARP/ND traffic 
   (https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-karir-armd-statistics/), and 
   valuable input collected from NANOG operators community.  Good 
   support by the WG.

Document Quality

   The document has incorporated many good suggestions from WG. It is 
   readable, accurate on problems to large scale data centers.
