Hi authors.,

This document has passed adoption as a BFD WG document.

Please resubmit the doc as draft-ietf-bfd-large-packets. Please also note that while there was strong support for adopting the document, the following points/questions were raised and should be discussed further within the WG as the document progresses:

  1.  Is there necessity to send all packets as large packets or alternatively can that be done periodically?
  2.  Authors should consider adding some text wrt use of BFD echo in the document

Also, there was a suggestion made to use BFD for PMTUD (as opposed to the BFD session failing when expected MTU isn’t met). My take on this is that it falls out of our charter but the PMTUD use-case should be considered if/when we recharter, I’d like to hear your thoughts on this.

Reshad & Jeff.
