Abstract

   This document describes mechanisms for P2P overlay diagnostics.  It
   defines extensions to the RELOAD P2PSIP base protocol to collect
   diagnostic information, and details the protocol specifications for
   these extensions.  Useful diagnostic information for connection and
   node status monitoring is also defined.  The document also describes
   the usage scenarios and provides examples of how these methods are
   used to perform diagnostics in P2PSIP overlay networks.
