1.  Introduction

   The Alternate Marking [RFC8321] and Multipoint Alternate Marking
   [I-D.ietf-ippm-multipoint-alt-mark] define the Alternate Marking
   technique that is an hybrid performance measurement method, per
   [RFC7799] classification of measurement methods.  This method is
   based on marking consecutive batches of packets and it can be used to
   measure packet loss, latency, and jitter on live traffic.

   AltMark Option [I-D.ietf-6man-ipv6-alt-mark] applies the Alternate
   Marking Method for IPv6 protocol, and defines Extension Header Option
   to encode Alternate Marking Method for both Hop-by-Hop Options Header
   and Destination Options Header.

   While the AltMark Option implement the basic alternate marking
   method, this document defines the extended data fields for the
   AltMark Option and provides the enhanced capabilities.

   It is worth mentioning that the enhanced capabilities are intended
   for further use and are optional.

2.  Data Fields Format

   The following figure shows the data fields format for enhanced
   alternate marking.  This data is expected to be encapsulated to
   specific transports.
