Network Working Group Jon Postel Request for Comments : 348 Computer Science UCLA-NMC NIC : 10427 30 May 72 Categories : Standard Processes Discard Process I suggest that for debugging and measurement purposes those hosts which are willing implement a "Discard" process. This discard process would listen for a request for connection and execute the Initial Connection Protocol (ICP) as specified in NIC 7104 the "Current Network Protocols" notebook. Upon completion of the ICP the discard process would wait for data from the network. When data is received from the network it is discarded at once, (and the buffer space is re-allocated). The discard process is terminated by closing the network connections.
