The draft capturing this work («Graceful BGP session shutdown», draft-ietf-grow-bgp-gshut-03), working group document of the GROW Working Group, describes operational procedures aimed at reducing the amount of traffic lost during planned maintenances of routers or links, involving the shutdown of BGP peering sessions. It also provides recommendations to router vendors for the support of a graceful shutdown mechanism that eases operational aspects of the solution.
