                 A One-Path Congestion Metric for IPPM
                     draft-dang-ippm-congestion-01

Abstract

   This memo defines a metric for one path congestion across Internet
   paths.  The traditional mode evaluates network congestion based on
   the bandwidth utilization of the link.  However, there is a lack of
   E2E path congestion that is truly service oriented.  So A Path
   Congestion Metric is required.

1.  Introduction

   This memo defines a metric for a path congestion across Internet
   paths.

   Currently there is no path congestion metric specified according to
   [RFC2330] framework, so the notions and conventions of Path
   Congestion will be introduced to extend RFC 2330.

   o  A 'singleton*' analytic metric, called Type-P-Path-Congestion,
      will be introduced to measure a single observation of A Path
      Congestion.

   o  Using this singleton metric, a 'sample*' called Type-P-One-Path-
      Congestion-Poisson-Stream is introduced to measure a sequence of
      singleton congestions sent at times taken from a Poisson process,
      defined in Section 11.1.1 of [RFC2330].
