Policy-Enabled Path Computation Framework
Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <email@example.com>, RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org>, pce mailing list <email@example.com>, pce chair <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Document Action: 'Policy-Enabled Path Computation Framework' to Informational RFC The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Policy-Enabled Path Computation Framework ' <draft-ietf-pce-policy-enabled-path-comp-05.txt> as an Informational RFC This document is the product of the Path Computation Element Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Ross Callon and David Ward. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-pce-policy-enabled-path-comp-05.txt
Technical Summary The Path Computation Element (PCE) Architecture introduces the concept of policy in the context of path computation. This document provides additional details on policy within the PCE Architecture and also provides context for the support of PCE Policy. This document introduces the use of the Policy Core Information Model (PCIM) as a framework for supporting path computation policy. This document also provides representative scenarios for the support of PCE Policy. Working Group Summary No controversy reported. The working group chairs were not completely convinced that there was a need for this document, but members of the working group were supportive, and it is certainly true that policy is discussed within the PCE architecture (RFC 4655) and is very applicable for inter-AS PCE. To the shepherding AD (Ross), the information discussed in this document is very much central to the point of PCE, and the only issue is whether it is so obvious that it is not necessary to actually write it down (but in general it seems better to write down non-controversial explanatory material). As reported in the PROTO writeup, there were no problems with consensus for this document, and when the I-D was accepted by the WG there was strong support. Document Quality This is an informational document that does not specify any protocol that could be implemented. The work that is ongoing in the PCE WG is compatible with this document. Personnel Adrian Farrel is the document shepherd. He has personally reviewed the I-D and believes it is ready for forwarding to the IESG for publication. Ross Callon is the responsible AD. There are no IANA actions required. A null IANA section is present.
