Abstract

Certain network access technologies are capable of providing various types of link-layer status information to IP. Link-layer event notifications can help IP expeditiously detect configuration changes. This document provides a non-exhaustive catalogue of information available from well-known access technologies. This memo provides information for the Internet community.


For the definition of Status, see RFC 2026.

For the definition of Stream, see RFC 4844.
