In certain networks, such as, but not limited to, financial information networks (e.g., stock market data providers), network- performance information (e.g., latency) is becoming as critical to data-path selection as other metrics.

             IS-IS Traffic Engineering (TE) Metric Extensions


   In certain networks, such as, but not limited to, financial    information networks (e.g., stock market data providers), network-    performance criteria (e.g., latency) are becoming as critical to    data-path selection as other metrics.

   This document describes extensions to IS-IS Traffic Engineering    Extensions (RFC 5305) such that network-performance information can    be distributed and collected in a scalable fashion.  The information    distributed using IS-IS TE Metric Extensions can then be used to make    path-selection decisions based on network performance.

   Note that this document only covers the mechanisms with which    network-performance information is distributed.  The mechanisms for    measuring network performance or acting on that information, once    distributed, are outside the scope of this document.
