Hi Chris,

You are right in that there is no assumption that all SRv6 locators in a domain 
are allocated from the same block. Therefore knowing the blocks used in the 
domain is useful.

The IGP drafts covers the advertisement of the B and N parts of the locally 
configured locator on the node via IGPs. On the receiver side, the IGP may not 
really do much with this information, however it enables propagation of this 
information from all nodes in the network to be advertised out via BGP-LS (or 
other mechanisms) as part of the topology feed. Once this is part of the 
topology feed, it enables use-cases on controllers to perform network wide 
validation of the SRv6 SID block provisioning and can also help in automation 
of the security aspects described in 
https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-6man-segment-routing-header-26#section-5

Thanks,
Ketan

Ketan,

Based on current documents, allocating all SRv6 locators used in a domain from 
a single block is optional.

However, assuming for the moment that a network operator has chosen to allocate 
all SRv6 locators used in a domain from a single block, so that there is a 
well-defined value of B and N across a domain, what is the use of having a 
router advertise its own understanding of these two values?  And what is a 
receiver supposed to do with this information?

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Bruno,

I believe the description and usage of Locator is very well described and 
covered in the net-pgm draft as also the corresponding IGP extensions. Is the 
question is more about the “block” part of it (what is not in the block part is 
in the node part as per the text in the net-pgm draft)?

The “block” is again not a new thing. Please check the following:
Under 
https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-6man-segment-routing-header-26#section-5 
… look for “block”
https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc8402#section-2 … look under SRGB for SRv6

[Bruno]
To clarify, my question was not specific to “block” but related to the usage, 
by the receiver, of the following piece of information:

      LB Length: SRv6 SID Locator Block length
      LN Length: SRv6 SID Locator Node length
      Fun. Length: SRv6 SID Function length
      Arg. Length: SRv6 SID Arguments length


So perhaps I don’t get Chris’s point and would wait for him to clarify.
[Bruno] I’ll leave this to Chris.

Thanks,
Ketan

Hi Chris,

I agree with Peter and I would suggest to drop LSR since this is not a protocol 
specific thing.

I believe the text in draft-ietf-spring-srv6-network-programming clears says 
what locator block and locator node are. What more details do you think are 
required?

[Bruno] Speaking as an individual, the draft could possibly clarify the usage 
of these information/fields by the receiver. Possibly using the same name/term 
(e.g. SRv6 SID Locator Block length) to ease the references between both drafts.

Thanks,
--Bruno

Ketan

SPRING and LSR WGs,

I think that we need a much more detailed description of the locator block and 
locator node in either draft-ietf-spring-srv6-network-programming or 
draft-ietf-lsr-isis-srv6-extensions.  See original email below.

Thanks,
Chris

sure, but that would be in the
draft-ietf-spring-srv6-network-programming-10, not in
draft-ietf-lsr-isis-srv6-extensions, as these are not a protocol
specific constructs.

thanks,
Peter
