                      Performance Measurement for 
              Segment Routing Networks with MPLS Data Plane
                    draft-gandhi-mpls-rfc6374-sr-00

Abstract

   Segment Routing (SR) leverages the source routing paradigm.  RFC 6374
   specifies protocol mechanisms to enable the efficient and accurate
   measurement of packet loss, one-way and two-way delay, as well as
   related metrics such as delay variation in MPLS networks using probe
   messages.  This document utilizes these mechanisms for Performance
   Delay and Loss Measurements in Segment Routing (SR) networks with
   MPLS data plane (SR-MPLS), for both SR links and end-to-end SR
   Policies.  In addition, this document defines Return Path TLV for
   two-way performance measurement and Block Number TLV for loss
   measurement.
