Subject: Protocol Action: 'PIM Group-to-RP Mapping' to Proposed Standard (draft-ietf-pim-group-rp-mapping-10.txt)
The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'PIM Group-to-RP Mapping'
(draft-ietf-pim-group-rp-mapping-10.txt) as a Proposed Standard
This document is the product of the Protocol Independent Multicast
The IESG contact persons are Adrian Farrel and Stewart Bryant.
A URL of this Internet Draft is:
Each PIM-SM router in a Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) Domain
which supports Any Source Multicast (ASM) maintains Group-to-RP
mappings which are used to identify a Rendezvous Point(RP) for a
specific multicast group. PIM-SM has defined an algorithm to choose
a RP from the Group-to-RP mappings learned using various mechanisms.
This algorithm does not consider the PIM mode and the mechanism
through which a Group-to-RP mapping was learned.
This document defines a standard algorithm to deterministically
choose between several group-to-rp mappings for a specific group.
This document first explains the requirements to extend the
Group-to-RP mapping algorithm and then proposes the new algorithm.
Working Group Summary
WG consensus appears sound.
There is consensus within the PIM WG to publish the document. While it
has not received wild working group involvement, the participation has
been active with individuals from a variety of vendors and providers.
The document has undergone thorough review within IETF's Multicast
