The REsource LOcation And Discovery (RELOAD) protocol [RFC6940] recommends symmetric recursive routing (SRR) for routing messages and describes the extensions that would be required to support additional routing algorithms. In addition to SRR, two other routing options -- direct response routing (DRR) and relay peer routing (RPR) -- are also discussed in Appendix A of [RFC6940]. As we show in Section 3, RPR is advantageous over SRR in some scenarios in that RPR can reduce load (CPU and link bandwidth) on intermediate peers. RPR works better in a network where relay peers are provisioned in advance so

  An Extension to the REsource LOcation And Discovery (RELOAD) Protocol                      to Support Relay Peer Routing


   This document defines an optional extension to the REsource LOcation    And Discovery (RELOAD) protocol to support the relay peer routing    mode.  RELOAD recommends symmetric recursive routing for routing    messages.  The new optional extension provides a shorter route for    responses, thereby reducing overhead on intermediate peers.  This    document also describes potential cases where this extension can be    used.
