This document describes a method to accomplish performance monitoring
measurements on real traffic, applicable to any packet-based stream,
including L2, L3, MPLS traffic, unicast and multicast. The method
can be easily implemented using tools and features already available
on existing routing platforms without any protocol extension and, for
this reason, it does not raise any interoperability issue. However,
the method could be further improved by means of some extension to
existing protocols, but this aspect is left for further study and it
is out of the scope of the document.
