V. Kompella Expires August 2008 [page 1] Internet-Draft Hashing on Pseudowires February 2008 This draft proposes a method to introduce granularity on the hashing of traffic running over pseudowires. Most forwarding engines are able to hash based on label stacks, so the approach here is to introduce additional labels that do not affect the handling of packets, but which identify a conversation, and can be hashed with granularity.
