Technical Summary

   This document describes features of a path monitoring system and
   related use cases.  Segment based routing enables a scalable and
   simple method to monitor data plane liveliness of the complete set of
   paths belonging to a single domain.  The MPLS monitoring system adds
   features to the traditional MPLS Ping and LSP Trace, in a very
   complementary way.  MPLS topology awareness reduces management and
   control plane involvement of OAM measurements while enabling new OAM

Working Group Summary

   Support has been consistent in the WG.

Document Quality

   There is a prototype implementation which has been running in a 
   research backbone. The resulting measurements have been compared to the 
   results measured by three IP Performance Measurement Work Group (IPPM WG) 
   standard conformant Measurement Agents and the results are equivalents. This 
   is documented in draft-leipnitz-spring-pms-implementation-report-00.
