Hi Greg,

I am fine with the change below.

Hi Reshad,
I think this is very good idea. Then in section 4.13.3 Transmitting BFD Packets of BFD for Multipoint Networks should be edited. Perhaps the following be acceptable:

   A system MUST NOT transmit any BFD Control packets if bfd.SilentTail

   is 1.

   A system MUST NOT transmit any BFD Control packets if bfd.SessionType is


Will look into related changes in active tails if others agree with the proposal in general.

Regarding bfd.SilentTail, I am wondering if instead it should be removed from MP draft  (always 1 in there) and kept as new state variable in active-tail?

Hi Greg,

The changes for bfd.SessionType (in both drafts) look good.

bfd.SilentTail is fine in multipoint but in active-tail it is in the New State Variables section.  It should be in 3.3.2 instead and there should be a reference to the multipoint draft.

Also, I am in the process of doing the shepherd write-up. So you don’t have to push these changes immediately, you can wait for the review, up to you.

thank you for your suggestions. Please check the diffs with proposed changes to BFD Multipoint and BFD Multipoint with active tails drafts (attached).

Reshad, Greg,

Indeed, it seems the content of the section is updated, but the title is misleading. The same applies to the active-tail doc:

Hi Greg,

Section 4.4.1 still says “New state variables” for bfd.SessionType and the text still starts with “A number of state variables and their values are added…”, so I misinterpreted that as bfd.SessionType is being added as new state variable.

Please consider splitting this section in 2 parts for clarification e.g. 4.4.1 for New State Variables (bfd.SilentTail) and 4.4.2 for New State Variable Values (bfd.SessionType).

Hi Reshad,
I thought I've addressed them as per Carlos suggestion. Have I missed anything?

The changes for bfd.SessionType (it’s not a new state variable but uses what’s defined in RFC7880) weren’t made in the latest revision.

Greg, do you plan on addressing this soon? Or there’s no consensus on this topic yet?

    I believe this covers all points I've seen on the mailing list to date.

    Please push the updates.

    We'll have further discussion about the need for a registry in conjunction
    with the Yang module implications discussion.
