Dear WG,

Please find below the pointers to a new Internet Draft that describes a
simple "ACK Pull" mechanism, intended to improve performance in a number
of scenarios / use cases.

Comments are very much welcome.

A new version of I-D, draft-gomez-tcpm-ack-pull-00.txt
has been successfully submitted by Carles Gomez and posted to the
IETF repository.

Name:		draft-gomez-tcpm-ack-pull
Revision:	00
Title:		TCP ACK Pull
Document date:	2019-07-01
Group:		Individual Submission
Pages:		6
Status:         https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-gomez-tcpm-ack-pull/
Htmlized:       https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-gomez-tcpm-ack-pull-00

   Delayed Acknowledgments (ACKs) allow reducing protocol overhead in
   many scenarios.  However, in some cases, Delayed ACKs may
   significantly degrade network and device performance in terms of link
   utilization, latency, memory usage and/or energy consumption.  This
   document defines the TCP ACK Pull (AKP) mechanism, which allows a
   sender to request the ACK for a data segment to be sent without
   additional delay by the receiver.  AKP makes use of one of the
   reserved bits in the TCP header, which is defined in this
   specification as the AKP flag.

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