             draft-ietf-tsvwg-tunnel-congestion-feedback-05

Abstract

   This document describes a method to measure congestion on a tunnel
   segment based on recommendations from RFC 6040, "Tunneling of
   Explicit Congestion Notification", and to use IPFIX to communicate
   the congestion measurements from the tunnel's egress to a controller
   which can respond by modifying the traffic control policies at the
   tunnel's ingress.

1. Introduction

   In IP networks, persistent congestion[RFC2914] lowers transport
   throughput, leading to waste of network resource. Appropriate
   congestion control mechanisms are therefore critical to prevent the
