A.7 STYLE Class

A.7 STYLE Class

STYLE class = 8.

  • STYLE object: Class = 8, C-Type = 1

               |   Flags     |              Option Vector              |

    Flags: 8 bits

    (None assigned yet)

    Option Vector: 24 bits

    A set of bit fields giving values for the reservation options. If new options are added in the future, corresponding fields in the option vector will be assigned from the least-significant end. If a node does not recognize a style ID, it may interpret as much of the option vector as it can, ignoring new fields that may have been defined.

    The option vector bits are assigned (from the left) as follows:

    19 bits: Reserved

    2 bits: Sharing control

      00b: Reserved

      01b: Distinct reservations

      10b: Shared reservations

      11b: Reserved

    3 bits: Sender selection control

      000b: Reserved

      001b: Wildcard

      010b: Explicit

      011b - 111b: Reserved

    The low order bits of the option vector are determined by the style, as follows:

                  WF 10001b
                  FF 01010b
                  SE 10010b
