1.  Introduction

   The document defines a variant of the SR Policy [I-D.  ietf-spring-
   segment-routing-policy] which allows for replication for supporting
   point-to-multi-point service delivery.  We call it an SR Replication
   Policy.

   We illustrate its use in two use-cases known as Spray and TreeSID.

   Spray uses an SR Replication Policy to replicate a packet, at a given
   node, along N SR paths to a set of leaf nodes.

   In the TreeSID use-case, a controller computes a tree from a root to
   a set of leaves and then programs each replication node of the tree
   with an SR Replication Policy.

2.  SR Replication Policy

   This section is similar to section 2 of SR Policy draft
   [I-D.ietf-spring-segment-routing-policy] and holds information that
   applies equally to the Spray and TreeSID use-cases.

   The SR Replication policy is a variant of an SR policy
   [I-D.ietf-spring-segment-routing-policy], which provides packet
   replication.  A SR Replication Policy is identified through the tuple
   <headend, color>.

Internet-Draft         P2MP SR Replication Policy              June 2018


   A SR Replication may comprise of multiple candidate paths.  A
   candidate path is valid when all its SID-Lists are valid.  The active
   candidate path is selected based on the tiebreaking rules amongst the
   valid candidate-paths.

   Each SID-List is additionally identified by a endpoint where its SR
   path terminates.  The endpoint could be the actual leaf of a P2MP
   service delivery tree or it could be the headend of another SR
   Replication Policy.

   Any traffic steered into a SR Replication Policy is replicated along
   the SID-Lists of its selected path towards the Leaf node.

   In the context of a SR Replication Policy, the selected path MAY have
   more than one SID-List.  The weights of the SID-Lists is not
   applicable for a SR Replication Policy.  They MUST be set to 1.

   Like any SR policy, a SR Replication Policy has a BSID
   [I-D.ietf-spring-segment-routing-policy] instantiated into the
   forwarding plane.

   A SR replication policy can be provisioned either locally or setup
   via controller.

   Traffic is steered into a SR Replication Policy in two ways

   o  Based on a local policy-based routing at the Root node.

   o  Based on remote classification and steering via the BSID of the SR
      Replication Policy.

3.  Spray SR Policy

   This is a use-case of the SR Replication Policy in which packet
   replication occurs only at the Root node.  A Spray SR Replication
   policy is instantiated only at the Root node.

   A packet, using this approach, is replicated directly to each Leaf
   node via a segment routed path from the Root to a given Leaf node.

4.  TreeSID - Controller Instantiated SR Tree

   This is a use-case of the SR Replication policy in which packet
   replication occurs at the Root node and on some downstream branch
   points towards the Leaf node.

Internet-Draft         P2MP SR Replication Policy              June 2018


   A SR Replication policy instantiated on the Root node takes a packet
   from the Root node to a set of branch points towards the Leaf node.
   A branch point MAY also be a Leaf node.

   Another SR Replication policy instantiated at each of these branch
   points take the packet down further to other branch points or Leaf
   nodes.
