Loop-Free Alternates (LFAs), as defined in RFC 5286, constitute an IP
Fast Reroute (IP FRR) mechanism enabling traffic protection for IP
traffic (and, by extension, MPLS LDP traffic).  Following early
deployment experiences, this document provides operational feedback
on LFAs, highlights some limitations, and proposes a set of
refinements to address those limitations.  It also proposes required
management specifications.

This proposal is also applicable to remote-LFA solutions.

This document is a product of the Routing Area Working Group Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
