Acee –

While I can understand your struggle as to how to select one S-BFD discriminator from multiple advertised by a given node, I do not understand why you believe the IGPs have a responsibility to address this issue.

At the time both the OSPF and IS-IS S-BFD drafts were first being written this question was raised – and the response was that this was outside the scope of the IGP drafts. We included the ability to advertise multiple discriminators because it was easy to do and future proofed us against unanticipated requirements.  But this does not obligate the IGPs to address the mapping issue. I think Manav’s proposed text is both appropriate and adequate. (Of course I could be biased since the IS-IS draft says the same thing. ☺ )

Please explain what it is that you believe is required and why it should be addressed by the  IGP drafts.

It is hard for me to see the benefit of advertising the S-BFD discriminators and learning them dynamically if you have to map them a specific service outside the protocol anyway. Even if you come up with a scheme of using separate ranges of discriminators per application, you still would have to map them an IP address endpoint if you are using more than one.

[Les:] Well, S-BFD discriminator is not necessarily mapped to a single IP endpoint. See  https://www.ietf.org/id/draft-ietf-bfd-seamless-base-05.txt  Section 5:

“Note that incoming S-BFD control packets may be IPv4, IPv6 or MPLS
   based.  How such S-BFD control packets reach an appropriate reflector
   BFD session is also a local matter, and is outside the scope of this
   document.”

I really don’t know why you think this discussion (interesting though it may be) has anything to do w the IGP drafts who are simply advertising values that BFD has asked them to advertise. It might be more appropriate in the review of the S-BFD base draft – but I think it is inappropriate in the review of the IGP drafts.

   Les


Anyway, this is good discussion as the same questions will undoubted come up during IESG review and it is better to address them now.

Thanks,
Acee

Hi Acee,

Sorry for the late response.

We will add the following text in the next update

“When multiple S-BFD discriminators are advertised how a given discriminator is mapped to a specific use case is out of scope for this document.”

I’m still struggling with the utility of automatic discovery of multiple S-BFD discriminators if one has no way to map them to an endpoint or the corresponding service.

Thanks,
Acee





Will address the other minor comments in the next rev.

Cheers, Manav

I have one major comments and I’ve copied Alvaro since he is reviewing the
base S-BFD drafts.

  If an OSPF router advertises multiple BFD discriminators, how do the
other OSPF routers in the OSPF routing domain map the S-BFD discriminators
to the OSPF router IP endpoints and services?

I also have some minor comments:

  1) This draft should reference the RFC 4970BIS draft as this is in RFC
EDIT state.
  2) Section 2.1 - The base RFC 4970BIS draft states that unrecognized
TLVs are ignored (as stated in section 3). This is not specific to this
TLV.
  3) Section 2.2 - This says the Opaque ID must be 0. Note that an OSPF
router can now originate multiple OSPF RI LSAs instances. I think this TLV
should be allowed in an OSPF RI LSA subsequent to the first.
  4) Section 2.2 - I don’t think we should advocate sending an empty OSPF
Router Information LSA. I’d remove this case.


Thanks,
Acee
