This document specifies a framework for the PSAMP (Packet
SAMPling) protocol.  The functions of this protocol are to select
packets from a stream according to a set of standardized
Selectors, to form a stream of reports on the selected packets,
and to export the reports to a Collector.  This framework details
the components of this architecture, then describes some generic
requirements, motivated by the dual aims of ubiquitous deployment
and utility of the reports for applications.  Detailed
requirements for selection, reporting, and exporting are
described, along with configuration requirements of the PSAMP
functions.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.
