Technical Summary

   This document describes a route computation back-off algorithm (not SPF computation algorithm itself!) to most widely used IGPs (OSPF/ISIS). Because lack of standard algorithm in this area various implementations choose to implement different back-off procedures today and this is one of the main contributors to the micro-loops seen today during network re-convergence. This document also defines the key configurable parameters for the standard algorithm defined here, so that same set of values can be provisioned in all nodes in a particular deployment. Other sources of micro loops are hinted in section 8 with some references.
