A new Request for Comments is now available in online RFC libraries. RFC 3181 Title: Signaled Preemption Priority Policy Element Author(s): S. Herzog Status: Standards Track Date: October 2001 Mailbox: firstname.lastname@example.org Pages: 12 Characters: 21990 Obsoletes: RFC 2751 I-D Tag: draft-ietf-rap-signaled-priority-v2-01.txt URL: ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc3181.txt This document describes a preemption priority policy element for use by signaled policy based admission protocols (such as the Resource ReSerVation Protocol (RSVP) and Common Open Policy Service (COPS). Preemption priority defines a relative importance (rank) within the set of flows competing to be admitted into the network. Rather than admitting flows by order of arrival (First Come First Admitted) network nodes may consider priorities to preempt some previously admitted low priority flows in order to make room for a newer, high-priority flow. This memo corrects an RSVP POLICY_DATA P-Type codepoint assignment error in RFC 2751. This document is a product of the Resource Allocation Protocol Working Group of the IETF. This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol. This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
