                   Fast Recovery for EVPN DF Election
               draft-ietf-bess-evpn-fast-df-recovery-00 

Abstract

   Ethernet Virtual Private Network (EVPN) solution [RFC 7432] describes
   DF election procedures for multi-homing Ethernet Segments. These
   procedures are enhanced further in [DF-FRAMEWORK] by applying Highest
   Random Weight Algorithm for DF election in order to avoid DF status
   unnecessarily upon a failure. This draft makes further improvement to
   DF election procedures in [DF-FRAMEWORK] by providing two options for
   fast DF election upon recovery of the failed link or node associated
   with the multi-homing Ethernet Segment. This fast DF election is
   achieved independent of number of EVIs associated with that Ethernet
   Segment and it is performed via a simple signaling between the
   recovered PE and each PE in the multi-homing group.
