Technical Summary This document describes an extension to the OSPF protocol to reduce periodic flooding of Link State Advertisements in stable topologies. It generalizes the use of DoNotAge LSAs (originally used only in dial-on-demand configurations) to reduce or eliminate refreshing of unchanging topology information. Working Group Summary The working group had consensus to publish this specification. Protocol Quality Bill Fenner and Alex Zinin reviewed this spec for the IESG. RFC Editor's Note: Please replace section 6 with the standard IPR text from section 5 of RFC3668.
