                Performance Measurement Using TWAMP Light
                      for Segment Routing Networks
                    draft-gandhi-spring-twamp-srpm-04

Abstract

   Segment Routing (SR) leverages the source routing paradigm.  SR is
   applicable to both Multiprotocol Label Switching (SR-MPLS) and IPv6
   (SRv6) data planes.  This document specifies procedure for sending
   and processing probe query and response messages for Performance
   Measurement (PM) in Segment Routing networks.  The procedure uses the
   mechanisms defined in RFC 5357 (Two-Way Active Measurement Protocol
   (TWAMP) Light) and Simple Two-Way Active Measurement Protocol (STAMP)
   for Delay Measurement, and also uses the mechanisms defined in this
   document for Loss Measurement.  The procedure specified is applicable
   to SR-MPLS and SRv6 data planes and are used for both links and
   end-to-end SR Policies.
