Ballot Text

Technical Summary

   This document defines a mechanism for conveying of Diameter load
   information. RFC7683 (DOIC) decided not to address load information
   delivery. This document fills that gap.

Working Group Summary

   The document had extensive discussion on the email reflector and there
   is working group support behind the documented solution. It is worth
   noting that Diameter experts from other SDOs (3GPP) also participated
   actively to the discussion.

Document Quality

   The specification is a natural extension to DOIC mechanism, which is 
   already adopted by 3GPP standards. 

   No specific reviews have been requested or carried out by
   different directorates. 


   Jouni Korhonen ( is the document shepherd.
   Stephen Farrell ( is the responsible AD.
