I read details in The Complete Network Upgrade & Maintenance Guide by
Mark Minasi, Jim Blaney, and Chris Brenton, Sybex Network Press, dated 1999,
ISBN: 0-7821-2259-0, 1556 pages plus a CD ROM. I might be able to drag it
along on Saturday.
It appears to be tied to automatic load balancing and data integrity over
many and various routing options.
