Technical Summary This document specifies a framework for the PSAMP (Packet SAMPling) protocol. The functions of this protocol are to select packets from a stream according to a set of standardized selectors, to form a stream of reports on the selected packets, and to export the reports to a collector. This framework details the components of this architecture, then describes some generic requirements, motivated by the dual aims of ubiquitous deployment and utility of the reports for applications. Detailed requirements for selection, reporting and exporting are described, along with configuration requirements of the PSAMP functions. Working Group Summary There is a solid WG consensus on the content of the draft. However, it was discussed controversially whether this document should become an informational RFC or a standards track RFC. Protocol Quality This is a framework document. The protocol is defined in a different document.
