The IESG has received a request from the Multiprotocol Label Switching WG
(mpls) to consider the following document: - 'Entropy label for SPRING
tunnels'
  <draft-ietf-mpls-spring-entropy-label-11.txt> as Informational RFC

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final
comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by 2018-06-19. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the beginning of
the Subject line to allow automated sorting.

Abstract


   Segment Routing (SR) leverages the source routing paradigm.  A node
   steers a packet through an ordered list of instructions, called
   segments.  Segment Routing can be applied to the Multi Protocol Label
   Switching (MPLS) data plane.  Entropy label (EL) is a technique used
   in MPLS to improve load-balancing.  This document examines and
   describes how ELs are to be applied to Segment Routing MPLS.
