Title : Graceful Restart Mechanism for BGP with MPLS
Author(s) : Y. Rekhter, R. Aggarwal
Filename : draft-rekhter-bgp-mpls-restart-00.txt
Pages : 8
Date : 22-Oct-01
 describes a mechanism for BGP that would help minimize the
negative effects on routing caused by BGP restart. This document
extends this mechanism to also minimize the negative effects on MPLS
forwarding when BGP is used to carry MPLS labels . The mechanism
described in this document is agnostic with respect to the types of
the addresses carried in the BGP NLRI. As such it works in
conjunction with any of the address famililies that could be carried
in BGP (e.g., IPv4, IPv6, etc...)

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
