                   Performance Measurement Using TWAMP
                       for Segment Routing Networks 
                    draft-gandhi-spring-twamp-srpm-01

Abstract

   Segment Routing (SR) is applicable to both Multiprotocol Label
   Switching (SR-MPLS) and IPv6 (SRv6) data planes.  This document
   specifies procedures for sending and processing synthetic probe query
   and response messages for Performance Measurement (PM).  The
   procedure uses the mechanisms defined in RFC 5357 (Two-Way Active
   Measurement Protocol (TWAMP)) for Delay Measurement, and also uses
   the mechanisms specified in this document for direct-mode Loss
   Measurement.  The procedure specified is applicable to SR-MPLS and
   SRv6 data planes for both links and end-to-end measurement for SR
   Policies.
