1.  Introduction

   [I-D.ietf-bier-architecture] introduces and explains Bit Index
   Explicit Replication (BIER) architecture and how it supports
   forwarding of multicast data packets.
   [I-D.ietf-bier-mpls-encapsulation] specified that in case of BIER
   encapsulation in MPLS network a BIER-MPLS label, label that is at the
   bottom of the label stack, uniquely identifies the multicast flow.
   [I-D.tempia-ippm-p3m] describes passive performance measurement
   method , Packet Network Performance Monitoring (PNPM), which can be
   used to measure packet loss, latency and jitter on live traffic.
   Because this method is based on marking consecutive batches of
   packets the method often referred as Marking Method (MM).

   This document defines how marking method can be used on BIER layer to
   measure packet loss and delay metrics of a multicast flow in MPLS
   network.
