                        Proxy MPLS Echo Request

Abstract

   This document defines a means of remotely initiating Multiprotocol
   Label Switched Protocol Pings on Label Switched Paths. A MPLS proxy
   ping request is sent to any Label Switching Routers along a Label
   Switched Path. The primary motivations for this facility are first to
   limit the number of messages and related processing when using LSP
   Ping in large Point-to-Multipoint LSPs, and second to enable leaf to
   leaf/root tracing.
