MPLS has defined mechanisms for fault detection and isolation and mechanisms for reliably sending an echo reply in RFC 4379. Source routed MPLS LSPs are a technique being proposed to address new use- cases. This document describes how mechanisms defined for MPLS fault detection and isolation can be applied for source routed LSPs.
