Title : Micro-loop prevention by introducing a local convergence delay Authors : Stephane Litkowski Bruno Decraene Clarence Filsfils Pierre Francois Filename : draft-ietf-rtgwg-uloop-delay-06.txt Pages : 22 Date : 2017-08-08 Abstract: This document describes a mechanism for link-state routing protocols to prevent local transient forwarding loops in case of link failure. This mechanism proposes a two-step convergence by introducing a delay between the convergence of the node adjacent to the topology change and the network wide convergence. As this mechanism delays the IGP convergence it may only be used for planned maintenance or when fast reroute protects the traffic between the link failure time and the IGP convergence. The proposed mechanism is limited to the link down event in order to keep the mechanism simple. Simulations using real network topologies have been performed and show that local loops are a significant portion (>50%) of the total forwarding loops.
