From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: RFC ISE <email@example.com> Cc: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org>, <email@example.com>, <firstname.lastname@example.org>, <email@example.com> Subject: Re: Informational RFC to be: <draft-tripathi-roll-rpl-simulation-07.txt> The IESG has no problem with the publication of 'Performance Evaluation of Routing Protocol for Low Power and Lossy Networks (RPL)' <draft-tripathi-roll-rpl-simulation-07.txt> as an Informational RFC. The IESG would also like the RFC-Editor to review the comments in the datatracker (http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-tripathi-roll-rpl-simulation/) related to this document and determine whether or not they merit incorporation into the document. Comments may exist in both the ballot and the comment log.

Technical Summary This document presents a performance evaluation of the Routing Protocol for Low power and Lossy Networks (RPL) for a small outdoor deployment of sensor nodes and for a large scale smart meter network. Detailed simulations are carried out to produce several routing performance metrics using these real-life deployment scenarios. Working Group Summary This document is submitted on the Independent Stream The IESG will want to note that this document was discussed over six revisions on the ROLL WG mailing list. During that time a number of suggestions were made, and the draft was updated accordingly. It should be noted that, while most of the comments raised in the working group were addressed, some concerns about the methodology remain unanswered. The working group expressed interest in having a document that covered simulation results, but could not decide what would go in that document. Additionally, the authors of this document felt that they wished to document and describe their simulation and did not have the resources to take on other simulations with different methodologies as suggested by the working group. For these reasons they have brought the I-D forward on the Independent Stream rather than through the WG or with AD sponsorship. The existence of this document in no way precludes the WG from producing its own document describing simulations, and does not prevent other authors from describing their own simulations and presenting them for publication. All authors of RPL simulation reports are encouraged to share them for open discussion on the ROLL mailing list. Document Quality The document has been reviewed by Craig Partridge on behalf of the ISE. The authors updated the document after his review. As noted above, the document has been updated after several reviews in the ROLL WG. This is an Informational document and not subject to implementation. - - - - - - RFC Editor Note The IESG has concluded that this work is related to IETF work done in the ROLL, IPPM, and BMWG working groups, but this relationship does not prevent publishing.
