1.  Introduction

   Reliable Server Pooling defines protocols for providing highly
   available services.  PEs of a pool may be distributed over a large
   geographical area, in order to provide redundancy in case of
   localized disasters.  But the current pool policies defined in
   [RFC5356] do not incorporate the fact of distances (i.e. delay)
   between PU and PE.  This leads to a low performance for delay-
   sensitive applications.

1.1.  Scope

   This draft defines a delay measurement infrastructure for ENRP
   servers to add delay information into the handlespace.  Furthermore,
   a delay-sensitive Least-Used policy is defined.  Performance
   evaluations can be found in [KiVS2007].

1.2.  Terminology

   The terms are commonly identified in related work and can be found in
   the Aggregate Server Access Protocol and Endpoint Handlespace
   Redundancy Protocol Common Parameters document [RFC5354].
