Technical Summary

   The Diameter base protocol commands operate on a single session so some
   deployment cases could result in many thousands of command exchanges to
   enforce the same operation on each session in the group.  Specifying a mechanisms
   for bulk operations on a number of session  managed by a Diameter node using a
   single or a few command exchanges would significantly reduce signalling.  This
   document specifies the Diameter protocol extensions to achieve this signalling

Working Group Summary

   There is a consensus behind the document. It just took a long time
   to complete the work.

Document Quality

   There are no known implementation of this protocol yet. 
   There are plans expressed that the solution will be contributed
   into FreeDiameter.
