This document describes a standard way to store the configuration and
the results of traceroute measurements.  This document first
describes the terminology used in this document and the traceroute
tool itself; afterwards, the common information model is defined,
dividing the information elements into two semantically separated
groups (configuration elements and results elements).  Moreover, an
additional element is defined to relate configuration elements and
results elements by means of a common unique identifier.  On the
basis of the information model, a data model based on XML is defined
to store the results of traceroute measurements.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
