This document describes mechanisms for providing directory service to TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links) edge switches. The directory information provided can be used in reducing multi-destination traffic, particularly ARP / Neighbor Discovery (ND) and unknown unicast flooding. It can also be used to detect traffic with forged source addresses.
For the definition of Status, see RFC 2026.
For the definition of Stream, see RFC 8729.
