#23 closed defect (invalid)

Multicast IPv6 ND triggers cause many ARs to send UPDATEs when there are many ARs on the link.

Component: draft-ietf-netlmm-mn-ar-if Severity:
Keywords: Cc:


The protocol implies that all of the possibly many ARs should send an UPDATE to the MAP when the MN sends the NS(DAD). Some might view this as being OK, i.e., that it is good to have the extra state in the MAP for the purpose of fault tolerance. But others might view it that having multiple entries for the same MN in the MAP and the extra control traffic represent unnecessary overhead.

Proposed Resolution: No text change yet. The issue of which AR updates the MAP, or how to arbitrate between many ARs updating the MAP has to be dealt with in the NetLMM backbone protocol. If the way this is done in the backbone requires coordination with the MN-AR interface, this will be sorted out once the backbone protocol specification is available.
