Title : OSPF Restart Signaling

OSPF is a link-state intra-domain routing protocol used in IP
networks. Routers find new and detect unreachable neighbors via Hello
subprotocol. Hello OSPF packets are also used to ensure two-way
connectivity within time. When a router restarts its OSPF software,
it may not know its neighbors. If such a router sends a hello packet
on an interface, its neighbors are going to reset the adjacency,
which may not be desirable in certain conditions. This memo provides
a mechanism that allows OSPF routers to inform their neighbors about
the restart process. Note that this mechanism requires support from

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
