Working Group,

We will be attempting to meet at IETF-106.  There's just enough business to
discuss to warrant using our time slot.

Note as below: We do not currently have a minutes taker.  If we do not have
one (ideally volunteering ahead of time) by meeting start time, we will
suspend without a meeting.

The authors of BFD for vxlan are requested to prepare slides covering
changes since the last IETF and a summary of the rather energetic discussion
we've had since that meeting.  Additionally, please summarize the open
issues since we have a few still being discussed on the list.

Please recall that BFD is meeting on Tuesday.  Please send me your slides by


Current targeted agenda:

Chairs update:
  5 mins - Jeff Haas

BFD for vxlan: 
  15 minutes - TBD

BFD for Large Packets:
  5 minutes - Jeff

BFD Demand Mode:
  10 minutes - Greg

Using One-Arm BFD in Cloud Network:
  10 minutes

-- Jeff
