                  Information Distribution over GRASP
                 draft-liu-anima-grasp-distribution-00

Abstract

   This document discusses the requirement of information distribution
   capability in autonomic networks.  Ideally, the autonomic network
   should support distributing some information which is generated/
   injected at an arbitrary autonomic node and be distributed among the
   whole autonomic domain.  This docuemnt specifically proposes to
   achive this goal based on the GRASP (A Generic Autonomic Signaling
   Protocol), and proposes relevant protocol extension to GRASP.
