Title : Tracing Requirements for Generic Tunnels
Author(s) : R. Bonica, K. Kompella, D. Meyer
Filename : draft-ietf-ccamp-tracereq-03.txt
Pages : 9

This document specifies requirements for a generic route-tracing
application. It also specifies requirements for a protocol that will
support that application. Network operators will use the generic
route-tracing application to verify proper operation of the IP
forwarding plane. They will also use the application to discover
details regarding tunnels that support IP forwarding.
The generic route-tracing application, specified herein, supports a
superset of the functionality that 'traceroute' currently offers.
Like traceroute, the generic route-tracing application can discover
the forwarding path between two interfaces that are contained by an
IP network. Unlike traceroute, this application can reveal details
regarding tunnels that support the IP forwarding path.

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
