     Registries for the One-Way Active Measurement Protocol - OWAMP
                   draft-ietf-ippm-owamp-registry-02

Abstract

   This memo describes the registries for OWAMP - the One-Way Active
   Measurement Protocol.  The registries allow assignment of MODE bit
   positions and OWAMP Command numbers.  The memo also requests that
   IANA establish the registries for new features, called the OWAMP-
   Modes registry and the OWAMP Control Command Number registry.  This
   memo updates RFC 4656.

1.  Introduction

   The One-way Active Measurement Protocol, OWAMP [RFC4656] was prepared
   to support measurements of metrics specified by the IP Performance
   Metrics (IPPM) working group in the IETF.  The Two-Way Active
   Measurement Protocol, TWAMP [RFC5357] is an extension of OWAMP.  The
   TWAMP specification gathered wide review as it approached completion,
   and the by-products were several recommendations for new features in
   TWAMP.  As a result, a registry of new features was established for
   TWAMP.  However, there were no new features proposed for OWAMP until
   recently [I-D.ietf-ippm-ipsec].

   This memo establishes the needed registries for OWAMP, and updates
   [RFC4656].

2.  Purpose and Scope

   The purpose and scope of this memo is to describe and request the
   establishment of registries for future OWAMP [RFC4656] extensions.
