Technical Summary

Mechanisms to detect data plane failures in point-to-point (P2P)
LSP are described in RFC 4379 - these mechanisms are known as
"LSP Ping".

The working group has also documented requirements for P2MP
LSP Ping.

This document extends the techniques described in RFC 4379 such that
they may be applied to P2MP LSPs. This document stresses the
reuse of existing LSP Ping mechanisms used for P2P LSPs, and applies
them to P2MP MPLS LSPs in order to simplify implementation and
network operation.

Working Group Summary

LSP Ping is one of the key OAM tools developed by the MPLS working,
the draft has well reviewed and is strongly supported by the
working group.

Document Quality

The document is well reviewed in all the groups mentioned above.
