An essential Operations, Administration and Maintenance requirement of the MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) is the ability to monitor performance metrics for packet loss and one-way and two-way delay for MPLS-TP pseudowires, Label Switched Paths, and Sections. This document specifies protocol mechanisms to facilitate the efficient and accurate measurement of these performance metrics.
