This bis document is a narrowly-scoped update to RFC 8919. The
updates are outlined in Section 9, "Changes to RFC 8919".
Existing traffic-engineering-related link attribute advertisements
have been defined and are used in RSVP-TE deployments. Since the
original RSVP-TE use case was defined, additional applications (e.g.,
Segment Routing Policy and Loop-Free Alternates) that also make use
of the link attribute advertisements have been defined. In cases
where multiple applications wish to make use of these link
attributes, the current advertisements do not support application-
specific values for a given attribute, nor do they support indication
of which applications are using the advertised value for a given
link. This document introduces new link attribute advertisements
that address both of these shortcomings.
This document obsoletes RFC 8919.
