         Requirements for hitless MPLS path segment monitoring
             draft-ietf-mpls-tp-temporal-hitless-psm-13.txt

Abstract

   One of the most important OAM capabilities for transport network
   operation is fault localisation.  An in-service, on-demand segment
   monitoring function of a transport path is indispensable,
   particularly when the service monitoring function is activated only
   between end points.  However, the current segment monitoring approach
   defined for MPLS (including the transport profile (MPLS-TP)) in RFC
   6371 "Operations, Administration, and Maintenance Framework for MPLS-
   Based Transport Networks" has drawbacks.  This document provides an
   analysis of the existing MPLS-TP OAM mechanisms for the path segment
   monitoring and provides requirements to guide the development of new
   OAM tools to support a Hitless Path Segment Monitoring (HPSM).
