Abstract

To assess performance problems, measurements based on optional sequence numbers and timing may be embedded in each packet. Such measurements may be interpreted in real-time or after the fact. This document describes an implementation of the existing IPv6 Destination Options extension header, the Performance and Diagnostic Metrics (PDM) Destination Options extension header. A discussion of the field limits, calculations, and usage of the PDM in measurement is described in a companion document.
