Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <firstname.lastname@example.org>, RFC Editor <email@example.com>, ippm mailing list <firstname.lastname@example.org>, ippm chair <email@example.com> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Information Model and XML Data Model for Traceroute Measurements' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Information Model and XML Data Model for Traceroute Measurements ' <draft-ietf-ippm-storetraceroutes-13.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the IP Performance Metrics Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Lars Eggert and Magnus Westerlund. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ippm-storetraceroutes-13.txt
Technical Summary This document describes a standard way to store the configuration and the results of traceroute measurements. This document first of all describes the tool itself; afterwards, the common information model is defined dividing the information elements in two semantically separated groups (configuration elements and results ones). Moreover an additional element is defined to relate configuration elements and results ones by means of a common unique identifier. On the basis of the information model a data model based on XML is defined to store the results of traceroute measurements. Working Group Summary The working group has supported the document throughout its life and it has been uncontroversial. Document Quality The document has been given thorough review by the group over its revisions. The XML code has been reviewed by the XML directorate. A previous version of this document required significant changes to address the gen-art review. The document underwent a second working group last call and IETF last call to verify consensus for these changes. Personnel Henk Uijterwaal (firstname.lastname@example.org) was the Document Shepherd. Ned Freed (email@example.com) reviewed the document for the XML Directorate. Lars Eggert (firstname.lastname@example.org) reviewed it for the IESG. RFC Editor Note In the description of the CtlSourceAddress element (bottom of page 29): OLD: On hosts with more than one IP address, this option can be used to force the source address to be something other than the primary IP address of the interface the probe is sent on. If "unknown" is specified for this object it means that source address specification was disabled. NEW: On hosts with more than one IP address, this option can be used in "RequestMetadata" element to force the source address to be something other than the primary IP address of the interface the probe is sent on; the value "unknown" means the default address will be used.
