What is the status of incremental xDS support?

The incremental xDS protocol is designed to improve efficiency, scalability and functional use of xDS updates via two mechanisms:

  • Delta xDS. Resource deltas are delivered rather than state-of-the-world.

  • On-demand xDS. Resource can be lazy loaded depending on request contents.

Currently, all xDS protocols (including ADS) support delta xDS. On-demand xDS is supported for VHDS only.
