Abstract

   This document describes a method of making RFC6374 performance
   measurements on flows carried over an MPLS Label Switched path.  This
   allows loss and delay measurements to be made on multi-point to point
   LSPs and allows the measurement of flows within an MPLS construct
   using RFC6374.

1.  Introduction

   [RFC6374] was originally designed for use as an OAM protocol for use
   with MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) [RFC5921] LSPs.  MPLS-TP only
   supports point-to-point and point-to-multi-point LSPs.  This document
