Hi Carlos,

My answers to your two questions are as follow:

In section 6.6 of RFC5880, just after the text you quoted, it says "One possible mechanism is the receipt of traffic from the remote system; another is the use of the Echo function." So I'm not sure what's your real concern.

In the abstract of this draft it says "This document describes procedures for using Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) in Demand mode to detect data plane failures in Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) point-to-point Label Switched Paths." If you don't like the expression form of the text quoted by you, pls feel free to propose some text.

Best Regards,

Xiao Min

主 题 :Re: WG Adoption request for draft-mirsky-bfd-mpls-demand

Scanning through the draft, two questions:
1. What is the underlying mechanism to check liveness such that Demand can be used?

   Demand mode requires that some other mechanism is used to imply

   continuing connectivity between the two systems.  The mechanism used

2. Is this draft testing liveness of a path or a node?

   In this state BFD peers MAY remain as long as the egress LER is in Up

   state.  The ingress LER MAY check liveness of the egress LER by

   setting the Poll flag.  The egress LER will respond by transmitting

I support WG adoption of this draft. Use of the demand mode for p2p LSP monitoring is feasible and required.

Working Group, The BFD chairs have received an adoption request for  "BFD in Demand Mode over Point-to-Point MPLS LSP" (draft-mirsky-bfd-mpls-demand). The adoption call will end on the Friday after IETF 103, November 9. Note that there is are existing IPR statements on this draft: Please indicate to the mailing list whether you support adoption of this draft. -- Jeff & Reshad
