Re: QoS attributes
David & All,
1) Yes, Attribute space is limited:
I believe everybody thinks the attribute space is precious and I think
the reasonable proposals are questioned based on this reason not because
of their merits/de-merits.
If the attribute space is not precious, then why is that the draft dealing
with LAN and WLAN specific attributes are not standardized. I think the
reason is VSA provide subtypes and this draft wants to introduce handful of
attributes which we don't have space. Right?
2) QoS attributes:
Even I don't believe in adding the all the QoS attributes under the
sun. At the sametime, I see a possibility for the need to change the QoS
attributes dynamically and it doesn't take much effort to standardize them
if we have some way to group them in one attribute.
3) Why should we handle QoS attributes in Radius:
It is a matter of choice and flexibility provided. For example, when I
watch a French movie DVD, I would like to see English subtitles. I can
switch on the subtitles using my remote and the english menu is provided
by the DVD player (or) I can select an option in the movie menu provided by
the particular movie DVD. I like this option because I don't understand
French movie menu.
It is upto the Vendors to choose if they support this way handling the QoS
attributes or not. My argument is that why does the standard body put the
to unsubscribe send a message to email@example.com with
the word 'unsubscribe' in a single line as the message text body.
