Re: [EFM] What to do when local_pdu is LF_INFO
126.96.36.199.1 discusses the content of the Information OAMPDU when the variable local_pdu=LF_INFO. These Information OAMPDUs are transmitted to the subordinate sublayer.
Whether or not these OAMPDUs are sent across the link depends upon the capability and configuration of the PCS (for 100BASE-X and 1000BASE-X) and the RS (for 10GBASE-X).
57.2.12 is talking about Unidirectional OAM characteristics for the DTE, while 188.8.131.52.1 discusses in detail the OAM Discovery state diagram within the OAM sublayer.
Hope this helps.

Subject: [EFM] What to do when local_pdu is LF_INFO
I have another question about what to do when local_pdu = LF_INFO. One part of the spec (184.108.40.206.1) says that info OAMPDU is sent without any information TLV, another part (57.2.12) is saying that such OAMPDU is only sent if the OAM supports unidirectional mode.
