                 A One-Path Congestion Metric for IPPM
                     draft-dang-ippm-congestion-02

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

   As we know, the current network has been already being in load
   balancing mode, however it is partially congested.  To solve the
   problem of unbalanced network load[draft-liu-ican], Congestion of
   paths requires an assessment metric.  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 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
