This Internet draft discusses many of the issues associated with
user plane OAM for MPLS. The goal being to provide tools to perform
'in service' maintenance of LSPs. Included in this discussion is
some of the implications of MPLS architecture on the ability to
support fault, diagnostic and performance management OAM
applications, potential solutions for distinguishing user plane OAM,
and a summary of what the authors believe can be achieved.
This framework is predicated on requirements described in [HARRISON- REQ].

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
