Notification and Subscription for SLP
Request for Comments
The Service Location Protocol (SLP) provides mechanisms whereby service agent clients can advertise and user agent clients can query for services. The design is very much demand-driven, so that user agents only obtain service information when they specifically ask for it.

In the RFC 2608 design, these applications are forced to poll the network to catch changes.doi:10.17487/rfc3082 dblp:journals/rfc/rfc3082 fatcat:kvrypk6m6fd3pawh2rn7zfmjqq
