         EtherType Protocol Identification of In-situ OAM Data
                      draft-weis-ippm-ioam-eth-01

Abstract

   In-situ Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (IOAM) records
   operational and telemetry information in the packet while the packet
   traverses a path between two points in the network.  This document
   defines an EtherType that identifies IOAM data fields as being the
   next protocol in a packet, and a header that encapsulates the IOAM
   data fields.
