Performance Monitoring (PM) is a key aspect of Operations,
Administration and Maintenance (OAM). It allows network operators to
verify the Service Level Agreement (SLA) provided to customers, and
to detect network anomalies. This document specifies mechanisms for
Loss Measurement and Delay Measurement in TRILL networks.
Working Group Summary
Discussion on this topic has gone on for the last 2 years.
During the WG LC and discussion at the March IETF 89, the general
consensus was "document is ready for RFC".
The written text of this document is high. The performance monitoring
issues clearly specified with clear descriptions of the mechanisms.
This document is a pleasure to read!
The document has been co-authors by two groups implementing the
code for deployment (Cisco and Huawei). The careful attention to
operational issues have shows in this draft. No specific announcement
of the release date for these TRILL PM implementations has been
made. An implementation survey planned for June so a better
understanding of the deployments may align with the IESG review.
Other vendors have indicated consideration of the PM specification.
