Abstract

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) has defined a mechanism to load balance traffic flows using Entropy Labels (EL). An ingress Label Switching Router (LSR) cannot insert ELs for packets going into a given tunnel unless an egress LSR has indicated via signaling that it can process ELs on that tunnel. This draft defines a mechanism to signal that capability using OSPF. This mechanism is useful when the label advertisement is also done via OSPF.
