This document describes an extension to Generalized MPLS (Multi-Protocol 
Label Switching) signaling to support communication of alarm information. 
GMPLS signaling already supports the control of alarm reporting, but not 
the communication of alarm information.  This document presents both a
functional description and GMPLS-RSVP specifics of such an extension.
This document also proposes modification of the RSVP ERROR_SPEC object.

This document updates RFC 3473, "Generalized Multi-Protocol Label
Switching (GMPLS) Signaling Resource ReserVation Protocol-Traffic
Engineering (RSVP-TE) Extensions", through the addition of new,
optional protocol elements.  It does not change, and is fully
backward compatible with, the procedures specified in RFC 3473.  

This document is a product of the Common Control and Measurement Plane
Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and 
suggestions for improvements.Please refer to the current edition of the
