Hi,

I think it is a good idea to have RBridges connected to a LAN link to report their 'shares'. Also, the "AF Affinity VLAN Set" makes sense in solving the unfair AF appointment.

My concern is that if some RBridges support this while others do not, perhaps there is a problem. Furthermore, if RBridges connected to the LAN link are from different vendors, they may have different opinions on the 'share' or have conflicting "AF Affinity VLAN Sets". 

IMO, this kind of AF appointment mechanisms should be standardized. So I'd like to see the progress of this draft.

Cheers,
Mingui

Subject: [trill] New draft for AF Load Share using Fair Share Scheduling

Hi fellow trillians,

We have proposed a new draft 'Fair Share AF Load Share', elaborating on an AF Load Share mechanism.

http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-kvk-trill-fair-share-af-load-share

Abstract:
   In an access LAN of a TRILL campus, the DRB can choose to load share
   the AF responsibility among other RBridges in the LAN. This document
   throws light on one such approach where the AF appointment is fair
   share scheduled among the RBridges.


We would love to hear your reviews and comments.

Cheers,
Krupa (kvk)
