Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) is one of the most
promising candidate technologies for a future data transmission
network.  GMPLS has been developed to control and operate different
kinds of network elements, such as conventional routers, switches,
Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) systems, Add-Drop
Multiplexers (ADMs), photonic cross-connects (PXCs), optical cross-
connects (OXCs), etc.  These physically diverse devices differ
drastically from one another in dynamic provisioning ability.  At the
same time, the need for dynamically provisioned connections is
increasing because optical networks are being deployed in metro
areas.  As different applications have varied requirements in the
provisioning performance of optical networks, it is imperative to
define standardized metrics and procedures such that the performance
of networks and application needs can be mapped to each other.

This document provides a series of performance metrics to evaluate
the dynamic Label Switched Path (LSP) provisioning performance in
GMPLS networks, specifically the dynamic LSP setup/release
performance.  These metrics can be used to characterize the features
of GMPLS networks in LSP dynamic provisioning.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
