We'll consider item 1 closed, and you will delete the references to
draft-ietf-bess-srv6-services. 

 

Please review my response to issue 5.  I think I need to understand issue 5,
before I review the mail list for issues 9. 

 

We're getting closer.

Ketan:

 

I'm pleased to see we have agreement on all issues except issues 1, 5, and
9.  With draft-06.txt, I consider those issues closed.  If you are agreed,
then I'll delete the text regarding those. 

 

On the issues remaining, 1, 5, and 9: 

 

Issue 1: reference to draft-ietf-bess-srv6-services 

 

You stated that "BESS BGP SRv6 draft is about extensions to BGP address
families that are unrelated to this BGP-LS specification",  

 

If this is true, why are you including this text in this draft?   If you
feel it is critical to the draft, then I will go back to the argument
regarding draft-ietf-bess-srv6-services. 

[KT] I will remove the informative reference to the BESS BGP SRv6 draft if
that is going to help clear the confusion.

 

Great - we'll consider this closed. 

 

Issue 5:  Unclear text 

 

I reached out to an SR expert during this review process of this draft
because I felt this text was unclear the first time in
draft-ietf-idr-bgp-ls-segment-routing-ext-16. 

 

[KT] For the record, the text is identical for what we have out for
publication for BGP-LS for SR-MPLS :
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/draft-ietf-idr-bgp-ls-segment-routing-
ext-16#section-2.2.2

 

I have re-read the section again this morning.  The sentence below

could be clarified by indicating which of the Endpoint behaviors in 

RFC8986 section 4 this applies to.   

 

Old text/The SRv6 LAN End.X SID TLV allows a node to announce SRv6 SID

corresponding to behaviors like END.X [RFC8986] for its adjacencies

to all other (i.e. non-DIS or non-DR) nodes attached to the LAN in a

single instance of the BGP-LS Link NLRI./

 

If you mean only to use this on IGP agencies, then please state which of the


SRv6 SID behaviors it applies to.   If you declare BGP adjacencies 

via direct connect out of scope at this point,  you can state this point.

 

[sue] Maybe a higher level question is key.  

Why did you say "like End.X"  rather than "End.X"? 

Were you implying another set of behaviors or just the one listed in section
2. 

  

[KT] The SRv6 LAN End.X SID TLV is only applicable for IGPs. 

[Sue] This was clear in the RFC8986 text. 

Hence - I'm trying to find what "like End.X" means. 

 

The RFC8986 behavior is the same End.X and the SID is advertised via SRv6
End.X SID TLV for adjacencies corresponding to the DIS (ISIS) or DR (OSPF)
and using SRv6 LAN End.X SID TLV for other non-DIS/non-DR routers. This is
specifically mentioned in Section 2 where all these TLVs are introduced
briefly.

 

[ok:  I begin to see you have the following specific use cases. 

 

   o  SRv6 SID of the IGP Adjacency SID or the BGP EPE Peer Adjacency

      SID [RFC8402] is advertised via SRv6 End.X SID TLV introduced in

      this document (Section 4.1)

 

   o  SRv6 SID of the IGP Adjacency SID to a non-Designated Router (DR)

      or non-Designated Intermediate-System (DIS) [RFC8402] is

      advertised via SRv6 LAN End.X SID TLV introduced in this document

      (Section 4.2)

 

   o  MSD types introduced for SRv6 are advertised (Section 4.3) using

      the Link MSD TLV specified in [RFC8814].

 

The phrase "like End.X" implies there are more.  

If these are the only phrases, then modify "like End.X" to "End.X" 

In section 4.1 

 

If the text exists in RFC8986, then you can simply refer to it. 

[KT] RFC8986 does not get into IGP specifics and these aspects are covered
by the respective IGP SRv6 specifications for which we already have the
references.

[sue] If you are just specifying "End.X", I can agree to this. 

 

On issue 9, I'll review the list information to see if I can provide further
details. 

[KT] Thanks - I will wait for the closure on this before posting the update.

 

Thanks,

Ketan 

 

Cheers, Sue

Guarav, Ketan, Fils, Mach, Daniel, Bruno:  

 

First of all thank you for your hard work on refining
draft-ietf-idr-bgpls-srv6-ext-05.txt.  

I'm glad to have this draft in the SRv6 family. 

 

This shepherd report is a combination of my review and a review done by
Haibo Wang.   As you recall, I asked for SR-Reviews to review SR drafts in
addition to the document shepherds.   I've indicated Haibo's comments in my
review.  I appreciate his help in reviewing this IDR draft.  

 

I'm working this weekend in case you want me to review any changes before
the draft deadline on Monday. 

 

Cheers, Sue

Issues are marked with levels: major or minor 

Resolution is marked as: Mandatory or recommended  

 

Issue #1: 

========

Location: Section 1:  paragraph 3, sentence

Issue:  Major

Change: Mandatory

 

Original Text: 

/BGP (I-D.ietf.bess-srv6-services)) has been extended to 

advertise some of these SRV6 SIDs and SRv6-related information./

 

Problem description: 

The reference to this bess draft means that you must support all the 

features within the draft. Specifically, if you are indicating support 

for the EVPN sections of this draft you are more likely to hit the 

issues described in section 4.9 of draft-ietf-idr-rfc7752bis-05.txt.   

[KT] The reference to the BGP SRv6 draft in BESS is informational only. It
is not related to section 4.9 of RFC7752-bis since that is applicable only
for link-state IGP protocols.

 

If you wish to keep this text, you have two options: 

 

Option 1) Replace RFC7752 references with RFC7752bis and make appropriate
changes 

Or 

Option 2) Keep dependency on RFC7752 and change the last paragraph of
section 10. 

 

For option 2, I provide you with sample text change below.  

This text is just a example. 

 

Old Text/The extensions, specified in this document, do not introduce any
new 

configuration or monitoring aspects in BGP or BGP-LS other than discussed

in [RFC7752]./

 

New text:/The extensions, specified in this document, do not introduce any
new 

configuration, monitoring  or error handle aspects of BGP or BGP-LS other 

than those discussed in [RFC7752] and [RFC7752bis].  In some use cases

for topologies that might be used for draft-ietf-bess-srv6-services EVPN,

the error handling in [RFC7752bis] section 4.9 may be necessary to handle 

the combination of unreachable IGP nodes, BGP-LS with certain BGP Peer
topologies, 

and service requirements of VPN applications./  

[KT] The BESS BGP SRv6 draft is about extensions to BGP address families
that are unrelated to this BGP-LS specification.

Issue 5: 

Location: section 4.2, page 9, paragraph 1

Status: Major

Change: Mandatory to improve text  

 

Reviewers: [Haibo Wang and Susan Hares] 

 Old/Text chapter 4.2 SRv6 LAN End.X SID TLV.

 

   For a LAN interface, normally an IGP node only announces its

   adjacency to the IS-IS pseudo-node (or the equivalent OSPF DR).  The

   SRv6 LAN End.X SID TLV allows a node to announce SRv6 SID

   corresponding to behaviors like END.X

   [I-D.ietf-spring-srv6-network-programming] for its adjacencies to all

   other (i.e. non-DIS or non-DR) nodes attached to the LAN in a single

   instance of the BGP-LS Link NLRI.  Without this TLV, multiple BGP-LS

   Link NLRI would need to be originated for each additional adjacency

   in order to advertise the SRv6 End.X SID TLVs for these neighbor

   adjacencies.

/

[KT] For the record, the text is identical for what we have out for
publication for BGP-LS for SR-MPLS :
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/draft-ietf-idr-bgp-ls-segment-routing-
ext-16#section-2.2.2

 

Hares Comments: This paragraph is unclear.  It needs to be rewritten. 

[WangHaibo] suggests a way to approach this text:  

1.  I suggest to first describe the behavior of the LAN End.X SID
explicitly, 

such as "each LAN End.X SID is used to specify the 

cross-connect to one adjacency node attached to the LAN". 

Then describe how to encode the LAN End.X SID TLVs with 

the Link NLRI corresponding to the adjacency to DIS or DR.

[KT] It is not the purpose of the BGP-LS specification to describe this and
hence we have reference to the individual IGP specifications in the very
next paragraph.

Issue 9: 

Location: 2. SRv6 SID NLRI

Status: Major 

Changes: Some textual change is mandatory  

Problem: 

    [Wang Habio comments]

   Now the BGP EPE Peer Node info is advertised with SRv6 SID NLRI, it
cause[s] some disadvantages compared to SR-MPLE EPE.

   First, the number of NLRIs needed for SRv6 EPE may be more than MPLS EPE.
This is because the NLRI's key is SRv6 SID, but for one EPE Peer node, there
may be multiple SIDs, such as End.x with PSP, End.x with USD etc. 

   Second, with MPLS EPE, for a direct EBGP Peer, only one NLRI is needed to
advertise the link and its Peer node SID, link attributes.  But with the
current method for SRv6 EPE, at least two NLRIs are needed, one is the SRv6
SID NLRI for the Peer Node SID, the other is a Link NLRI with the End.X SID
(the SID value may be the same while need to be advertised in different
NLRIs) and link attributes..

  At current stage maybe it is not suitable to change the encoding, but I
suggest to give more detail description about the behavior of advertising
the SRv6 Peer node SID and the Peer adjacency SID with corresponding NLRIs
for a direct peer and for a peer established on loopback.  

[KT] I remember all of this has been discussed on the mailer a few times
already (and even offline) during the life of the document in the WG.

 

[Hares] Solution possibilities: 

a) provide text in section 6 prior to NLRI format 

b) create section in manageability section providing more details

 

If have questions on this request for clarifying information, 

send email to me, Haibo, or the list. 

[KT] I am not able to fully understand what is being asked here and I guess
we need further discussion. Is there some text that you have in mind that
you can propose?
