This document describes an extension for OAM packet such as IP Ping (ICMP [RFC0792] or ICMPv6 [RFC4443]) and MPLS LSP Ping [RFC8029], which can be used within an IOAM domain, allowing the IOAM encapsulating node to acquire IOAM configuration data of each IOAM transit node and/or IOAM decapsulating node easily and dynamically.
