Hi Nirav,
can you please point out what actually is confusing. I would have thougth that my proposal is more clear and precise as it exactly identifies when a given request matches the OLR (i.e. must undergo the throttling).

With regard to complexity there is no difference between checking the two allowed enumeration values 1 and 2 (current version) or the two allowed Unsigned64 values (0x0000000000000007) and (0x0000000000000019) (my proposal).

The main benefit I see with my proposal is the extensibility e.g.
One new value of   ORIGIN_HOST_MATCH (0x0000000000000020) for Overload Mitigation Differentiation per client rather than
Two new values of "host report with origin-host match" and realm-report with origin-host match".

Best regards
Ulrich

Hi Ulrich,

Instead of re-packing, I see your proposal as confusing or adding more implementation complexity to the exiting simple proposal of having just two Report-Type.
e.g. with your proposal, now the nodes have to validate if the combination of Report-Type flag is correct/allowed or not and perform the error handling if there is any discrepancy. 

Besides, I do not see the need for some obvious Report-Type e.g. "APPLICATION_ID_MATCH" since it is always present and/or implicit.
Same is the case with "DESTINATION_HOST_PRESENT" and "DESTINATION_HOST_MATCH". What is the use case for destination-host present but not match? In other words, the reacting node should use this type of report towards which node/realm?

I guess this time you need to convince me (at least) as why you think so many different Report-Types are needed and what is the issue with existing definition of Report-Type.

Regards,
Nirav.

Hi Jouni,

maybe that my proposal is just kind of repackaging. But still I think it is much clearer than the existing text, and you seem not to object.
Please consider accepting the proposed modification.

Best regards
Ulrich

I do not see how changing the type to unsigned would help with the extensibility on
an assumption we create an IANA maintained registry for it. Unsigned64 will have
exactly the same issues as enumerated unless we define report type semantics to
something like what we have on OC-Feature AVP. How the receiver of the report type
reacts when it sees a flag bit that is does not understand? If the content and
handling  of the OC-OLR somehow depends on the unknown flag bit, the receiver has
no other choice than drop the OLR, since it cannot be sure how to handle the report
as a whole.

The only ways around I see here are:
a) you can extend report types when defining new applications
b) or when both ends have a mutually supported & advertised feature that maps
   to a report type (that has been defined after the publication of this 
   spec)

Other than those, IMHO, are just repackaging the issue into different form.
