A new internet draft is posted which provides a mechanism to contain flooding information 
for link state protocols  for specific topologies.

Kindly review and provide your suggestions.

Subject: New Version Notification for draft-hegde-rtgwg-virtual-multi-instance-00.txt

A new version of I-D, draft-hegde-rtgwg-virtual-multi-instance-00.txt
has been successfully submitted by Shraddha Hegde and posted to the IETF repository.

Name:		draft-hegde-rtgwg-virtual-multi-instance
Revision:	00
Title:		Virtual multi-instancing for link state protocols
Document date:	2015-06-30
Group:		Individual Submission
Pages:		15

   In networks with routers of different capabilities, some routers may
   not be able to participate fully in supporting new features or
   handling large databases and the associated flooding.  In some cases,
   these restrictions can cause severe scalability issues for the
   network in general.  This document proposes virtual multi-instances,
   a generic mechanism for OSPF and IS-IS, that allows groups of routers
   in specific topologies to have a reduced database and reduces the
   topology changes that are seen.  The virtual multi-instances are
   specified so that no software or protocol changes are required in the
   restricted routers.  Due to the potential number of virtual multi-
   instances in a network, the configuration is limited and is not
   specified per virtual instance.


Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission until the htmlized version and diff are available at
