This document identifies a set of requirements for the mechanisms
used to dynamically reallocate the resources of a switching element
(e.g., an ATM switch) to its partitions.  These requirements are
particularly critical in the case of an operator creating a switch
partition and then leasing control of that partition to a third
party.

This document is a product of the General Switch Management Protocol
Working Group of the IETF.
