This memo addresses the problem of protocol support for measuring Network Capacity metrics in RFC xxxx: draft-ietf-ippm-capacity- metric-method, where the method deploys a feedback channel from the receiver to control the sender's transmission rate in near-real-time. It supplies a simple protocol to perform the measurements. See Section 10: The authors seek feedback to determine what additional features will be necessary for an IETF Standards Track Protocol, beyond what is present in the running code available now.
