Technical Summary The IETF has standardized IP Performance Metrics (IPPM) for measuring end-to-end performance between two points. This memo defines two new categories of metrics that extend the coverage to multiple measurement points. It defines spatial metrics for measuring the performance of segments of a source to destination path, and metrics for measuring the performance between a source and many destinations in multiparty communications (e.g., a multicast tree). Working Group Summary The working group input has improved this document through its revisions, and the document itself has been uncontroversial. Document Quality No known implementations claim to implement this metric. However, other implementers in the group have read the draft. Personnel The document shepherd is Matt Zekauskas (firstname.lastname@example.org). Lars Eggert (email@example.com) reviewed it for the IESG.
