This document specifies requirements for a generic route-tracing
application.  It also specifies requirements for a protocol that will
support that application.  Network operators will use the generic
route-tracing application to verify proper operation of the IP
forwarding plane.  They will also use the application to discover
details regarding tunnels that support IP forwarding.

The generic route-tracing application, specified herein, supports a
superset of the functionality that "traceroute" currently offers.
Like traceroute, the generic route-tracing application can discover
the forwarding path between two interfaces that are contained by an
IP network.  Unlike traceroute, this application can reveal details
regarding tunnels that support the IP forwarding path.
