Title : A Framework for Passive Packet Measurement

Filename : draft-ietf-psamp-framework-03.txt

A wide range of traffic engineering and troubleshooting tasks rely
on timely and detailed traffic measurements that can be
consistently interpreted. This document describes a framework for
packet sampling that is (a) general enough to serve as the basis
for a wide range of operational tasks, and (b) needs only a small
set of packet selectors that facilitate ubiquitous deployment in
router interfaces or dedicated measurement devices, even at very
high speeds. The framework also covers reporting and exporting
functions used by the sampling element, and configuration of the

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
