Technical Summary This document describes features of a path monitoring system and related use cases. Segment based routing enables a scalable and simple method to monitor data plane liveliness of the complete set of paths belonging to a single domain. The MPLS monitoring system adds features to the traditional MPLS Ping and LSP Trace, in a very complementary way. MPLS topology awareness reduces management and control plane involvement of OAM measurements while enabling new OAM features. Working Group Summary Support has been consistent in the WG. Document Quality There is a prototype implementation which has been running in a research backbone. The resulting measurements have been compared to the results measured by three IP Performance Measurement Work Group (IPPM WG) standard conformant Measurement Agents and the results are equivalents. This is documented in draft-leipnitz-spring-pms-implementation-report-00. Personnel Bruno Decraene is the Document Shepherd. Alvaro Retana is the Responsible Area Director.
