This document defines extensions to the data-plane failure-detection
protocol for Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switched
Paths (LSPs) known as "LSP ping".  These extensions allow a selection
of the LSP to be used for the echo reply return path.  Enforcing a
specific return path can be used to verify bidirectional connectivity
and also increase LSP ping robustness.

This document is a product of the Multiprotocol Label Switching Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

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.
