Abstract

A set of debug levels is encoded into a given Spatial Reference System Identifier (SRID) throughout a network with different values assigned to different semantics (e.g., "no debug," "some debugs," "lots of debugs," etc.). In an example, it is possible to map the top million possible debug combinations on a given set of routers and encode them directly into the bottom twenty bits of different fields (e.g., Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) label, Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) Flow Label, etc.).
