Abstract

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switched Path (LSP) Ping and traceroute are defined in [RFC4379]. These mechanisms can be used to detect data-plane failures in all MPLS LSPs, including Pseudowires (PWs). However, the PW LSP Ping and traceroute elements are not specified for IPv6 address usage.

Abstract

   The Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switched Path (LSP)    Ping and traceroute mechanisms are commonly used to detect and    isolate data-plane failures in all MPLS LSPs, including LSPs used for    each direction of an MPLS Pseudowire (PW).  However, the LSP Ping and    traceroute elements used for PWs are not specified for IPv6 address    usage.

   This document extends the PW LSP Ping and traceroute mechanisms so    they can be used with PWs that are set up and maintained using IPv6    LDP sessions.  This document updates RFC 4379.
