Techniques are provided for establishing priorities between different signaling messages and using a priority queueing/scheduling mechanism that will preserve performance guarantees of a centralized control plane even in scaled up systems with high signaling load. This builds on the key observation that there can be established a direct relation between signaling mechanisms in on-demand overlay fabrics and their contribution to the convergence of the network after a network update.
