The TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links) protocol, by
default, learns end station addresses from observing the data plane.
In particular, it learns local Media Access Control (MAC) addresses
and the edge switch port of attachment from the receipt of local data
frames and learns remote MAC addresses and the edge switch port of
attachment from the decapsulation of remotely sourced TRILL Data

This document specifies a message by which a TRILL switch can
explicitly request other TRILL switches to flush certain MAC
reachability learned through the decapsulation of TRILL Data packets.
This is a supplement to the TRILL automatic address forgetting (see
Section 4.8.3 of RFC 6325) and can assist in achieving more rapid
convergence in case of topology or configuration change.

This document is a product of the Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
