Micro-loops are transient forwarding loops that can occur among
routers using hop-by-hop forwarding. This document analyzes
the impact of using different Link State IGP implementations
in a single network with respect to micro-loops.
The analysis focuses on the SPF triggers and SPF delay algorithms.
Working Group Summary
The final version of the document has strong consensus in the WG. Input
from the WG was incorporated in the document.
The document is of high quality.
Two Routing Area Directorate reviews were done. The first was
done by Mike Shand around the time of working group adoption.
This review pointed out some issues related to terminology and phrasing,
as well as a generalization about the size of networks. These
issues were addressed by the authors.
The main issue raised by the second review (done by Tomonori Takeda)
was the fact the document was classified as Standards Track. This
was addressed by changing it to Informational.
