This document describes features and a use case of a path monitoring system. Segment based routing enables a scalable and simple method to monitor data plane liveliness of the complete set of paths belonging to a single domain. Compared with legacy MPLS ping and path trace, MPLS topology awareness reduces management and control plane involvement of OAM measurements while enabling new OAM features.
