This document describes a control plane architecture for dynamic instantiation of service function chains which dynamically creates and adapts service function paths to optimize performance of the service function paths. This document further defines basic operations for the dynamic instantiations; and performance metrics of service function path components, i.e., service function instances and forwarding links among service function forwarders for evaluation of the service function path.
