Under SAP, services can be dynamically added and removed from the network. When servers are started, they advertise the services offered through SAP broadcasts. When a server is shut down, it uses SAP to indicate that the services will soon be unavailable. SAP information is loaded into a table that is made available to all nodes that request a particular service.
