Networks that utilize RSVP-TE LSPs are encountering implementations
that have a limited ability to support the growth in the number of
LSPs deployed.

This document defines two techniques, Refresh-Interval Independent
RSVP (RI-RSVP) and Per-Peer Flow Control, that reduce the number of
processing cycles required to maintain RSVP-TE LSP state in Label
Switching Routers (LSRs) and hence allow implementations to support
larger scale deployments.

This document is a product of the Traffic Engineering Architecture and Signaling Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
