Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) Transient Blackhole Avoidance, April 2002
Discuss this RFC: Send questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
This document describes a simple, interoperable mechanism that can be employed in Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) networks in order to decrease the data loss associated with deterministic blackholing of packets during transient network conditions. The mechanism proposed here requires no IS-IS protocol changes and is completely interoperable with the existing IS-IS specification. This memo provides information for the Internet community.
