Hi,

One outstanding issue with this document is revisiting and getting to a deliberate position on which RFCs (if any) this document “Updates” (if approved). Currently:

Updates: 4379, 6424, 6790 (if approved)

The authors, shepherd, chairs, and responsible AD have discussed this (i.e., which document(s) are actually “Updated" by draft-ietf-mpls-entropy-lsp-ping-04). We agree that only RFC 6970 is actually “Updated" by this I-D. The relationship between RFC 4379, RFC 6424 and draft-ietf-mpls-entropy-lsp-ping is that the the I-D extends functionality from those “base” RFCs, without updating text or changing meaning from either.

The draft adds a new multi-path information type to the DDMAP TLV as defined in RFC 6424. So, why doesn’t it update this RFC as well????

If RFC A defines a TLV space, and RFC B adds one more Type to that TLV, is that an “Update”?  (???)

Our view is that it is not — it’s a natural extension of a protocol (defined to be extended by defining new types) but the procedures of the former are not changed by the existence of the new Type defined in the latter.

Section 1.2 states that the update is applicable to RFC 6424.

It says that RFC 6424 can use the new Multipath Information Type defined. It does not say that the procedures in RFC 6424 change. (that text can be updated though)

Does defining a new OSPF RI TLV update RFC4970/7770? (???)

As an aside, what constitutes an “Update” could use some more precision, perhaps.

Thanks,

— Carlos.


Thanks,
Acee







Thanks,

Abstract


  Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switched Path (LSP) Ping
  and Traceroute are methods used to test Equal-Cost Multipath (ECMP)
  paths.  Ping is known as a connectivity verification method and
  Traceroute as a fault isolation method, as described in RFC 4379.
  When an LSP is signaled using the Entropy Label (EL) described in RFC
  6790, the ability for LSP Ping and Traceroute operations to discover
  and exercise ECMP paths is lost for scenarios where LSRs apply
  different load balancing techniques.  One such scenario is when some
  LSRs apply EL-based load balancing while other LSRs apply non-EL
  based load balancing (e.g., IP).  Another scenario is when an EL-
  based LSP is stitched with another LSP which can be EL-based or non-
  EL based.

  This document extends the MPLS LSP Ping and Traceroute multipath
  mechanisms in RFC 6424 to allow the ability of exercising LSPs which
  make use of the EL.  This document updates RFC 4379, RFC 6424, and
  RFC 6790.
