An Application Flow (see sections 7 and 8.7) can be a member of an Application Flow Group. Application Flow Groups provide the mechanism for associating a Policy with multiple Application Flows at an SWVC End Point. If a Policy is associated with an Application Flow Group at an SWVC End Point, then that Policy is associated with all Application Flows that are members of the group. (Each Application Flow can replace the Group Policy association with its own Policy association at an SWVC Endpoint.) Application Flow Groups also provide a mechanism for the members to share bandwidth commitments and limits (see section 8.5.7).
The value of the SWVC List of Application Flow Groups Service Attribute is a list (possibly empty) of Application Group names.
For example, Application Flows “Banana”, “Pear” and “Grape” can all be members of the Application Flow Group “FruitService”. Group membership is indicated in the definition of each Application Flow (see sec-tion 8.7).
[R38] Each Application Flow Group name in the value of the SWVC List of Application Flow Groups Service Attribute MUST be an Identifier String.
[R39] Each Application Flow Group name in the value of the SWVC List of Application Flow Groups Service Attribute MUST appear, at most, once.
[R40] An Application Flow Group name in the value of the SWVC List of Application Flow Groups Service Attribute MUST NOT have the value none.
