	Title		: A Lower Effort Per-Domain Behavior for Differentiated 
	Author(s)	: R. Bless et al.
	Filename	: draft-bless-diffserv-pdb-le-01.txt
	Pages		: 16
	Date		: 2002-11-21
This document proposes a differentiated services per-domain behavior
(PDB) whose traffic may be 'starved' (although starvation is not
strictly required) in a properly functioning network.  This is in
contrast to the Internet's 'best-effort' or 'normal Internet traffic'
model where prolonged starvation indicates network problems.  In this
sense the proposed PDB's traffic is forwarded with a 'lower' priority
than the normal 'best-effort' Internet traffic, thus the PDB is
called 'Lower Effort' (LE).  Use of this PDB permits a network
operator to strictly limit the effect of its traffic on 'best-
effort'/'normal' or all other Internet traffic.  This document gives
some example uses, but does not propose constraining the PDB's use to
any particular type of traffic.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
