This working group has three main objectives:
Consider current issues in traffic flow measurement, such as
Security issues relating to both traffic measuring devices
and to the data they produce.
Policy issues relating to traffic measurement and usage
accounting, for example any requirements these may place on
emerging network protocols
Existing work in traffic flow measurement, including that of
IETF Working Groups such as bmwg/ippm, rsvp and rmonmib, as
well as that by vendors and independent researchers
Produce an improved Traffic Flow Model considering at least the
wider range of measurable quantities, e.g. those relating to
IPv6, and to class of service
- simpler ways to specify flows of interest
- better ways to control access to measured flow data
- strong focus on data reduction capabilities
efficient hardware implementation
Develop the RTFM Architecture and Meter MIB as 'standards track'
documents with the IETF.
