Dear TCONS/OBL members,
We'd like to have a telecon this Friday at 11:30 EST to discuss plans for
getting out the books. I've included the following from Steve to get us
thinking about it before the telecon.
>The key issues are how we define the QoS and where we split the stack for
>the red books. There are currently two views on this, both of which I agree
>with (something about training as a physicist and getting to grips with
>1. Split TCONS/OBL at the bottom of TCP/IP and above the sub-network level
>where the QoS is done. This is the view that Rick put forward. In this case
>OBL offers a set of services which provide different QoS to TCP/IP and
>(and possible TCONS protocols).
>2. Split TCONS/OBL below the sub-network level so that the QoS services are
>generic to all the underlying buses. This is the view that Dai put forward.
>It preserves the role of TCONS looking at the QoS issues (in line with the
>charters) but is disadvantageous if all the QoS if handled differently by
>the various buses.
>In either case the key thing is to sort out the way in which to handle QoS,
>then I think that the answer will be clear. My current thoughts are that
>approach (1) may be the best way forward. I suggest that we work on the QoS
>together and once this issue is fully resolved that we split up the work on
>the various books to get them completed as soon as possible.
This seems like a good way to begin discussion. Please let me know if
you'll be able to attend. Sorry for the late notice.
