The BGP-based control procedures for Multicast Virtual Private
Networks make use of a BGP attribute known as the "P-Multicast
Service Interface (PMSI) Tunnel" attribute. The attribute contains a
one-octet "Flags" field. The purpose of this document is to
establish an IANA registry for the assignment of the bits in this
field. Since the Flags field contains only eight bits, this document
also defines a new BGP Extended Community, "Additional PMSI Tunnel
Attribute Flags", that can be used to carry additional flags for the
PMSI Tunnel attribute. This document updates RFC 6514.
Working Group Summary
This document fills a hole in previous specification (the lack of creation of a registry).
Well written and to the point.
