This draft is a work item of the IP Performance Metrics Working Group of the IETF.
Title : One-way Loss Pattern Sample Metrics
Author(s) : R. Koodli, R. Ravikanth
Filename : draft-ietf-ippm-loss-pattern-06.txt

The Internet exhibits certain specific types of behavior (e.g.,
bursty packet loss) that can affect the performance seen by the users
as well as the operators. Previously, the focus of the IPPM had
been on specifying base metrics such as delay, loss and connectivity
under the framework described in . However, specific Internet
behaviors can also be captured under the umbrella of IPPM framework,
specifying new concepts while reusing existing guidelines as much as
possible. This document defines metrics derived from the previously
specified base metrics to capture loss patterns experienced by
streams of packets on the Internet.

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
