Thank you for the draft to provide an interesting way of the instance affinity. I think it is for some scenarios that need loose synchronization and client support.

More detail about whether to use DNS or the period setting can be further discussed, and whether it adapts to the current architecture.

主题: [Dyncast] Instance Affinity (draft-bormann-dyncast-affinity-00.txt)You may not see this because of the I-D frenzy, but I thought I might alert you anyway.  I have written a little draft that proposes a way to obtain service instance affinity without building network state that needs to scale with the number of clients/service invocations.  Feedback would be welcome if you like exploring ideas like this.

Grüße, Carsten
