            A Reference Path and Measurement Points for LMAP
                      draft-ietf-ippm-lmap-path-04

Abstract

   This document defines a reference path for Large-scale Measurement of
   Broadband Access Performance (LMAP) and measurement points for
   commonly used performance metrics.  The methods for measurement point
   location may be applicable to similar measurement projects using the
   extensions described here.

1.  Introduction

   This document defines a reference path for Large-scale Measurement of
   Broadband Access Performance (LMAP) or similar measurement projects.
   The series of IP Performance Metrics (IPPM) RFCs have developed terms
   that are generally useful for path description (section 5 of
   [RFC2330]).  There are a limited number of additional terms needing
   definition here, and they will be defined in this memo.

   The reference path is usually needed when attempting to communicate
   precisely about the components that comprise the path, often in terms
   of their number (hops) and geographic location.  This memo takes the
