Re: [RPRWG] Question about the Fairness Message

Dr. Zhou,

The Rate Adhoc committee (RAH) is looking into addressing these questions
and clarifying how it would work and make changes as/if needed. We're
meeting on a weekly basis and discussing all of these issues and many more.

I believe that any answer we give right now may be incomplete and may change
based on the outcome of this effort. I suggest that you hold your questions
till the July meeting.

Subject: [RPRWG] Question about the Fairness Message

> Hi,
>   As defined in D0.2, the type A and type B fairness messages are sent out
periodically to propagate fair rate information to upstream nodes. In
another word, it means that all congested or uncongested nodes both send
this fairness message onto the ring. Assume that one node received the
fairness message from another node, but how could the node judge which node
is congested ? And then how could the node get the number of hops to the
congested node?
