MPLS-TE Graceful Shutdown is a method for explicitly notifying 
the nodes in a Traffic Engineering (TE) enabled network that the 
TE capability on a link or on an entire Label Switching Router 
(LSR) is going to be disabled. MPLS-TE graceful shutdown 
mechanisms are tailored toward addressing planned outage in the 
This document provides requirements and protocol mechanisms to 
reduce/eliminate traffic disruption in the event of a planned
