Title : A Bulk Handling Per-Domain Behavior for Differentiated
Author(s) : B. Carpenter, K. Nichols
Filename : draft-ietf-diffserv-pdb-bh-02.txt
Pages : 4

This document proposes a differentiated services per-domain behavior
whose traffic may be 'starved' (although starvation is not strictly
required) in a properly functioning network. This is in contrast
to the Internet's 'best-effort' or 'normal Internet traffic' model.
The name, 'bulk handling' is loosely based on the United States'
Postal Service term for very low priority mail, sent at a reduced
rate. This document gives some example uses, but does not propose
constraining the PDB's use to any particular type of traffic.

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
