              Circuit Breaker Assisted Congestion Control
                       draft-ietf-mboned-cbacc-00

Abstract

   This document specifies Circuit Breaker Assisted Congestion Control
   (CBACC).  CBACC enables fast-trip Circuit Breakers by publishing rate
   metadata about multicast channels from senders to intermediate
   network nodes or receivers.  The circuit breaker behavior is defined
   as a supplement to receiver driven congestion control systems, to
   preserve network health if receivers subscribe to a volume of traffic
   that exceeds capacity policies or capability for a network or
   receiver.
