Title : Instantaneous Packet Delay Variation Metric for IPPM
Author(s) : C. Demichelis, P. Chimento
Filename : draft-ietf-ippm-ipdv-05.txt
Pages : 20

This memo refers to a metric for variation in delay of packets across
Internet paths. The metric is based on statistics of the difference
in One-Way-Delay of consecutive packets. This particular definition
of variation is called 'Instantaneous Packet Delay Variation (ipdv)'.
The metric is valid for measurements between two hosts both in the
case that they have synchronized clocks and in the case that they are
not synchronized. In the second case it allows an evaluation of the
reciprocal skew. Measurements performed on both directions (Two-ways
measurements) allow a better estimation of clock differences. The
precision that can be obtained is evaluated.

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.
