Closing of IPoRPR WG


IPoRPR was created years ago, before I was co-AD of the Internet Area. 
When I became AD 3+ years ago, there was one document, 
draft-ietf-iporpr-basic, which the group was on track to publish.

During the last call in 2006, the document got caught up in some 
concerns about the DSCP mappings for RPR being prescriptive on MPLS in 
general. These probably could be addressed but will require a re-edit of 
the draft and some championing. It has been two years, and that has not 
happened.

I would like to formally close the WG, and remove the document from the 
IESG queue. If someone wishes to move this document forward, and can 
resolve the DSCP issues, re-edit the document, etc. I will be happy to 
take this document to the IESG individually. Thus, the end result is 
effectively the same, its just that we are no longer counting iporpr as 
a WG.

If anyone here has objections to this move, please let me know ASAP as I 
expect to make this a formal action at the beginning of the IETF meeting 
in Dublin next week. Again, if there is sufficient interest and energy, 
there is nothing stopping anyone from picking up the iporpr-basic draft 
an publishing it, even on Standards Track, we are just eliminating the 
current WG structure as it seems to be dormant.

Thanks,

- Mark

Joint WG last call on IPoRPR-basic

Folks,

A joint IPoRPR WG & MPLS WG last call is initiated for <draft-ietf-iporpr-basic-03.txt>.  The WG last call will end October 3.

Per the abstract:  This document specifies a basic standard method of encapsulating IPv4, IPv6, and MPLS datagrams into IEEE 802.17 Resilient packet ring (RPR) datagrams.

The draft is intended as a Proposed Standard on the standards track.

Please send comments to the WG mailing list you are a member of (MPLS or IPoRPR).  Glenn will cross-post as appropriate.

Glenn & Loa

IPoRPR draft updates

Folks,

Based on discussion with some Transport Area experts at IETF 66, I am proposing some minor updates to the IPoRPR draft.

1. The behaviiour or DSCP 010010 was inconsistent with the others and should be aligned.  The update to the first part of Table 2 is as follows:

       |----------|-------------------|-------------|-------------|
       |   DSCP   |        RPR        |     RPR     |  Traffic    |
       |          |   service_class   |   mark_fe   | Allocation  |
       |==========|===================|=============|=============|
       |  000000  |      classC       |   ignore    |     EIR     |
       |  001000  |                   |             |             |
       |----------|-------------------|-------------|-------------|
       |  001010  |                   |    FALSE    | classB-CIR  |
       |          |                   |-------------|-------------|
       |  001100  |                   |    TRUE     | classB-EIR  |
       |  001110  |                   |             |             |
       |----------|                   |-------------|-------------|
       |  010000  |                   |    FALSE    | classB-CIR  |
       |----------|      classB       |-------------|-------------|
       |  010010  |                   |    FALSE    | classB-CIR  |
       |          |                   |-------------|-------------|
       |  010100  |                   |    TRUE     | classB-EIR  |
       |  010110  |                   |             |             |
       |----------|                   |-------------|-------------|
       |  011010  |                   |    FALSE    | classB-CIR  |
       |          |                   |-------------|-------------|
       |  011100  |                   |    TRUE     | classB-EIR  |
       |  011110  |                   |             |             |
       |----------|-------------------|-------------|-------------|
     

2. To align with this modified table, change the paragraph following Table 2 (on the bottom of page 14) as follows:

    Services marked with a DF and CS1 DSCP only an EIR component.
    Service marked with AF11, AF21, AF31 and CS2 DSCPs have an aggregated CIR and services marked with AF12, AF13, AF22, AF23, AF32 and AF33 have an aggregated EIR component.

    Traffic marked with CS6 DSCP class (routing control) also has only a CIR component. Further, it is recommended that CS6 marked traffic be assigned its own RPR service.  These guidleines are provided so that congestion from other traffic sources does not cause routing instability since it is separated from the routing control traffic.

    As CS7 is for future use, no mapping is provided.


An updated draft will be issued shorlty, followed by a joint IPoRPR/MPLS WG last call.

Cheers,
Glenn.

PURPOSE / HISTORY:

CIC'06 is an internation! al conference held simultaneously (ie, same location and dates) with a number of other joint conferences as part of WORLDCOMP'06 (The 2006 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing).  WORLDCOMP'06 is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing.  Many of the 28 joint conferences in WORLDCOMP are the premier conferences for presentation of advances in their respective fields. WORLDCOMP'06 is composed of the following international conferences: Parallel and Distributed Processing Techniques and Applications; Scientific Computing; Grid Computing and Applications; Security and Management; Artificial Intelligence; Machine Learning; Software Engineering Research and Practice; Programming Languages and Compilers; Internet Computing; Semantic Web and Web Services; Computer Design; Real-Ti me Computing Systems and Applications; Embedded Systems and Applications; Wireless Networ! ks; Pervasive Systems and Computing; Image Processing, Computer Vision, and Pattern Recognition; Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality; Modeling, Simulation and Visualization Methods; Computer Games Development; Frontiers in Education in Computer Science and Engineering; Foundations of Computer Science; e-Learning, e-Business, Enterprise Information Systems, e-Government, and Outsourcing; Data Mining; Information and Knowledge Engineering; Bioinformatics and Computational Biology; Computing in Nanotechnology; Engineering of Reconfigurable Systems and Algorithms; Communications in Computing.

The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research conferences into a coordinated research meeting held in a common place at a common time.  The main goal is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas in a number of research areas that interact.  The model used to form these a nnual conferences facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of comp! uter science, computer engineering and applied computing.  Both inward research (core areas of computer science and engineering) and outward research (multi-disciplinary, Inter-disciplinary, and applications) will be covered during the conferences.

 

 

LOCATION OF CONFERENCES:

The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels). The Monte Carlo Resort is a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000 rooms. The hotel is minutes from the airport with 24-hour shuttle service to and from the airport. This hotel has many recreational attractions, including: waterfalls, spa, pools and kiddie pools, sunning decks, Easy River water ride, wave pool with cascades, lighted tennis courts, health spa (with workout equipment, whirlpool, sauna, ...), arcade virtual reality game rooms, nightly shows, snack bars, a number of restaurants, shopping area, bars, ...  Many of these attractions are open 24 hours a day and most are suitable for families and children. The negotiated room rate for conference attendees is very reasonable.  The hotel is within walking distance from most other attractions (major shopping areas, recreational destinations, fine dining and night clubs, free street shows, ...).

IEEE 802.17 comments on draft-01

Folks,

The IEEE 802.17 WG provided some minor comments on draft-01 at their meeting today:

- move the classA0/classA1 paragraph that is under table 2 to the definition of classA in 2.2.3
- add a sentence to the end of this paragraph like
  "subclassA0 is not reclaimable, i.e. this bandwidth is reserved and not available for classB or
   classC traffic"
- typo in section 2, change to "…is contained…"
- in section 3.2 remove the 0x8100 line as the use of VLAN tags for MPLS should not be highlighted

The plan is to issue a new draft containing at least these changes before the next IETF meeting.

The draft will then be proposed for a WG last call.

Cheers,
Glenn.
