This memo utilizes IP performance metrics that are applicable to both
complete paths and sub-paths, and it defines relationships to compose
a complete path metric from the sub-path metrics with some accuracy
with regard to the actual metrics.  This is called "spatial
composition" in RFC 2330.  The memo refers to the framework for
metric composition, and provides background and motivation for
combining metrics to derive others.  The descriptions of several
composed metrics and statistics follow.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
