The TRILL (TRansparent Interconnection of Lots of Links) protocol, by default, learns end station addresses from observing the data plane. This document specifies a message by which an originating TRILL switch can explicitly request other TRILL switches to flush certain MAC reachability learned through the egress of TRILL Data packets. This is a supplement to the TRILL automatic address forgetting and can assist in achieving more rapid convergence in case of topoogy or configuration change.
