Technical Summary The Resource ReserVation Protocol (RSVP) [RFC2205] defines an ERROR_SPEC object for communicating errors. That object has a defined format that permits the definition of 256 error codes. As RSVP has been developed and extended, the convention has been to be conservative in communicating errors. Further no provision for user defined errors exists in RSVP. This document defines such an extension that allows user or manufacturer specific error indications in addition to the regular code. Working Group Summary This document was WG last called in TSVWG, CCAMP and MPLS to cover all WG that works with RSVP. The consensus was not disputed but not particular large. Document Quality This document has gotten descent review. No known implementations. Personnel The responsible WG shepherd and AD is Magnus Westerlund.
