Title : Link Management Protocol (LMP)
Author(s) : J. Lang
Filename : draft-ietf-ccamp-lmp-08.txt
Pages : 74
Date : 2003-3-26
For scalability purposes, multiple data links can be combined to
form a single traffic engineering (TE) link. Furthermore, the
management of TE links is not restricted to in-band messaging, but
instead can be done using out-of-band techniques. This document
specifies a link management protocol (LMP) that runs between
neighboring nodes and is used to manage TE links. Specifically, LMP
will be used to maintain control channel connectivity, verify the
physical connectivity of the data links, correlate the link property
information, suppress downstream alarms, and localize link failures
for protection/restoration purposes in multiple kinds of networks.

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
