  Controlling State Advertisements of Non-negotiated LDP Applications

Abstract

   There is no capability negotiation done for Label Distribution
   Protocol (LDP) applications that set up Label Switched Paths (LSPs)
   for IP prefixes or that signal point-to-point (P2P) Pseudowires (PWs)
   for Layer 2 Virtual Private Networks (L2VPNs).  When an LDP session
   comes up, an LDP speaker may unnecessarily advertise its local state
   for such LDP applications even when the peer session is established
   for some other applications like Multipoint LDP (mLDP) or the Inter-
   Chassis Communication Protocol (ICCP).  This document defines a
   solution by which an LDP speaker announces to its peer its
   disinterest in such non-negotiated applications, thus disabling the
   unnecessary advertisement of corresponding application state, which
   would have otherwise been advertised over the established LDP
   session.
