This document proposes a new IS-IS flooding mechanism which separates multiple flooding instances for dissemination of routing information and other types of application-specific information to minimizes the impact of non-routing information flooding on the routing convergence and stability. Due to different flooding information has different requirements on the flooding rate, these multi-flooding instances should be given various priorities and flooding parameters. An encoding format for IS-IS Multi-Flooding Instance Identifier (MFI-ID) TLV and Update Process are specified in this document.
