      Information Elements for Data Link Layer Traffic Measurement
             draft-ietf-ipfix-data-link-layer-monitoring-01

Abstract

   This document describes Information Elements related to data link
   layer.  They are used by the IP Flow Information Export (IPFIX)
   protocol for encoding measured data link layer traffic information.
