This document defines a means of remotely initiating Multiprotocol Label
Switched Protocol (MPLS) Pings on Label Switched Paths.  An MPLS Proxy Ping
Request is sent to any Label Switching Router along a Label Switched Path.
The primary motivations for this facility are first to limit the number of
messages and related processing when using LSP Ping in large
Point-to-Multipoint LSPs, and second to enable tracing from leaf to leaf 
(or root).

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 Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the
