The IESG contact persons are Stephen Farrell, Benoit Claise and Joel Jaeggli. A URL of this Internet Draft is: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-dime-drmp/
Technical Summary When making routing and resource allocation decisions, Diameter nodes currently have no generic mechanism to determine the relative priority of Diameter messages. This document addresses this by defining a mechanism to allow Diameter endpoints to indicate the relative priority of Diameter transactions. With this information Diameter nodes can factor that priority into routing, resource allocation and overload abatement decisions. Working Group Summary The document received a large support for adoption when initiated and it has been reviewed multiple times, with detailed comments and corrections. The version -03 addresses the last comments received after the WGLC process. There is a strong WG consensus on the content of this document, with a broad range of people, including key experts. Document Quality The proposed solution has not been implemented yet, as vendors are waiting for IANA AVP code value assignment before implementing. However, no issues are expected with implementation. Moreover, the solution defined in this document have been already introduced in standard specifications defined by 3GPP. It is therefore understood that the vendors implementing 3GPP specifications will implement this mechanism. Personnel The document shepherd is Lionel Morand. Stephen Farrell is being AD-like for this.
