Technical Summary This document specifies an improvement to the PR-SCTP export specified in the IPFIX specifications in RFC5101. This method offers several advantages such as the ability to calculate Data Record losses for PR-SCTP, immediate export of Template Withdrawal Messages, immediate reuse of Template IDs within an SCTP stream, and reduced demands on the Collecting Process. Working Group Summary This work was motivated by experiences made with early IPFIX implementations. It was accepted with consensus as WG work item and progressed within the WG. WG last call was conducted in August 2008. Modifications based on received comments were applied until November 2008. No more issues were brought up since then and at the IETF meeting in March 2009 the WG confirmed at the session that the document is ready for requesting publication. Document Quality IPFIX is implemented and deployed and this work is based on deployment experience. The document underwent several reviews and a WG last call in the IPFIX WG. This way, a high document quality has been achieved already. Personnel Juergen Quittek is shepherding this document. Dan Romascanu is the responsible Area Director.
