Jerome Status: Experimental Date: November 2002 Mailbox: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, Erik.Guttman@sun.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com Pages: 8 Characters: 15260 Updates/Obsoletes/SeeAlso: None I-D Tag: draft-zhao-slp-customization-05.txt URL: ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc3421.txt This document defines two extensions (Select and Sort) for the Service Location Protocol (SLP). These extensions allow a User Agent (UA) to request that the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) entries in a Service Reply (SrvRply) be limited to the specified number, or be sorted according to the specified sort key list. Using these two extensions together can facilitate discovering the best match, such as finding a service that has the maximum speed or the minimum load.
