Abstract:
   Cost metric is a basic concept in Application-Layer Traffic
   Optimization (ALTO), and is used in basic services including both the
   cost map service and the endpoint cost service.

   Different applications may use different cost metrics, but the ALTO
   base protocol documents only one single cost metric, i.e., the
   generic "routingcost" metric; see Sec. 14.2 of ALTO base
   specification [RFC7285].  Hence, if the resource consumer of an
   application prefers a resource provider that offers low-delay
   delivery to the resource consumer, the base protocol does not define
   the cost metric to be used.

   ALTO cost metrics can be generic metrics and this document focuses on
   network performance metrics, including network delay, jitter, packet
   loss, hop count, and bandwidth.  Additional cost metrics may be
   documented in other documents.

   When using an ALTO performance metric, applications need additional
   information beyond the metric.  In particular, its "cost-source",
   such as it being an estimation or an SLA, is key to define the
   meaning of a performance metric.  Hence, each ALTO performance metric
   should include the "cost-source" of the metric.  To report an
   estimated value of a performance metric, the ALTO server may derive
   and aggregate from routing protocols with different granularity and
   scope, such as BGP-LS, OSPF-TE and ISIS-TE, or from end-to-end
   traffic management tools.  These metrics may then be exposed by an
   ALTO Server to allow applications to determine "where" to connect
   based on network performance criteria.
