Abstract

   Mtrace is a tool used to troubleshoot issues in a network deploying
   Multicast service.  When multicast is used within a VPN service
   offering, the base Mtrace specification does not detect the failures.
   This document specifies a method of using multicast traceroute in a
   network offering Multicast in VPN service.

1.  Introduction

   The current multicast traceroute [I-D.ietf-mboned-mtrace-v2] travels
   up the tree hop-by-hop towards the source.  This verifies the basic
   multicast state back to the source, but is not sufficient to verify
   the MVPN state.  The base Mtrace specification assumes that the
   routers in the path are directly connected through interfaces.  In
   the case of Multicast traffic over VPN service, the PEs who are MVPN
