The IESG has received a request from the Inter-Domain Routing WG (idr) to consider the following document: - 'Notification Message support for BGP Graceful Restart' <draft-ietf-idr-bgp-gr-notification-15.txt> as Proposed Standard
The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the i...@ietf.org mailing lists by 2018-04-24. Exceptionally, comments may be sent to i...@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting. Abstract The BGP Graceful Restart mechanism defined in RFC 4724 limits the usage of BGP Graceful Restart to BGP protocol messages other than a BGP NOTIFICATION message. This document updates RFC 4724 by defining an extension that permits the Graceful Restart procedures to be performed when the BGP speaker receives a BGP NOTIFICATION Message or the Hold Time expires. This document also defines a new BGP NOTIFICATION Cease Error subcode whose effect is to request a full session restart instead of a Graceful Restart. The file can be obtained via https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-idr-bgp-gr-notification/ IESG discussion can be tracked via https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-idr-bgp-gr-notification/ballot/ No IPR declarations have been submitted directly on this I-D.
