Abstract

This document defines a BGP extension that allows the advertisement of multiple paths for the same address prefix without the new paths implicitly replacing any previous ones. The essence of the extension is that each path is identified by a Path Identifier in addition to the address prefix.


For the definition of Status, see RFC 2026.

For the definition of Stream, see RFC 4844.
