In certain networks, it is critical to consider network performance criteria when selecting the path for an explicitly routed RSVP-TE LSP. Such performance criteria can include latency, jitter, and loss or other indications such as the conformance to link SLAs and non- RSVP TE traffic load. This specification uses IGP extension data (which is defined outside the scope of this document) to perform such path selections.
