This document specifies an extension to the specifications
in RFC 5101, IP Flow Information Export (IPFIX), when using
the Partial Reliability extension of SCTP (PR-SCTP, Partial
Reliability Stream Control Transmission Protocol).

When implemented at both the Exporting Process and Collecting Process,
this method offers several advantages, such as the ability to
calculate Data Record losses for PR-SCTP per Template, immediate export of
Template Withdrawal Messages, immediate reuse of Template IDs
within an SCTP stream, reduced likelihood of Data Record loss,
and reduced demands on the Collecting Process.  When implemented
in only the Collecting Process or Exporting Process, then normal IPFIX
behavior will be seen without all of the additional benefits.  

This document is a product of the IP Flow Information Export 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 Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
