In-situ OAM(IOAM) records OAM information within the packet while the packet traverses a particular network domain. A discussion of the motivation and requirements for in-situ OAM can be found in [I-D.brockners-inband-oam-requirements]. This document defines a light weight IOAM method for SRv6 network programming. In this method, IOAM information is carried in the data packet by the SIDs in the SRH.
