       Per multicast flow Designated Forwarder Election for EVPN
           draft-ietf-bess-evpn-per-mcast-flow-df-election-00

Abstract

   [RFC7432] describes mechanism to elect designated forwarder (DF) at
   the granularity of (ESI, EVI) which is per VLAN (or per group of
   VLANs in case of VLAN bundle or VLAN-aware bundle service).  However,
   the current level of granularity of per-VLAN is not adequate for some
   applications.[I-D.ietf-bess-evpn-df-election-framework] improves base
   line DF election by introducing HRW DF election.
   [I-D.ietf-bess-evpn-igmp-mld-proxy] introduces applicability of EVPN
   to Multicast flows, routes to sync them and a default DF election.
   This document is an extension to HRW base draft
   [I-D.ietf-bess-evpn-df-election-framework] and further enhances HRW
   algorithm for the Multicast flows to do DF election at the
   granularity of (ESI, VLAN, Mcast flow).

1.  Introduction

   EVPN based All-Active multi-homing is becoming the basic building
   block for providing redundancy in next generation data center
   deployments as well as service provider access/aggregation networks.
   [RFC7432] defines the role of a designated forwarder as the node in
   the redundancy group that is responsible to forward Broadcast,
   Unknown unicast, Multicast (BUM) traffic on that Ethernet Segment (CE
   device or network) in All-Active multi-homing.

   The default DF election mechanism allows selecting a DF at the
   granularity of (ES, VLAN) or (ES, VLAN bundle) for BUM traffic.
   While [I-D.ietf-bess-evpn-df-election-framework] improve on the
   default DF election procedure, some service provider residential
   applications require a finer granularity, where whole multicast flows
