          Segment Routing with MPLS Data Plane Encapsulation
                          for In-situ OAM Data 
                      draft-gandhi-mpls-ioam-sr-01

Abstract

   In-situ Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (IOAM) records
   operational and telemetry information in the data packet while the
   packet traverses a path between two nodes in the network.  Segment
   Routing (SR) technology leverages the source routing paradigm.  This
   document defines how IOAM data fields are transported using the
   Segment Routing with MPLS data plane (SR-MPLS) encapsulation.  The
   procedures defined are also equally applicable to all other MPLS data
   plane encapsulations.

1.  Introduction

   In-situ Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (IOAM) records
   operational and telemetry information within the packet while the
   packet traverses a particular network domain.  The term "in-situ"
   refers to the fact that the IOAM data fields are added to the data
   packets rather than being sent within the probe packets specifically
   dedicated to OAM or Performance Measurement (PM).  The IOAM data
   fields are defined in [I-D.ippm-ioam-data], and can be used for
