Technical Summary

The IETF has completed its work on the core specification of TWAMP -
the Two-Way Active Measurement Protocol. This memo describes two
closely-related features for TWAMP: an optional capability where the
responder host returns some of the command octets or padding octets
to the controller, and an optional sender packet format that ensures
equal test packet sizes are used in both directions.

Working Group Summary

The normal WG process was followed and the document has been discussed
for several years. The document as it is now, reflects WG consensus, with
nothing special worth noticing.


Henk Uijterwaal ( is the document shepherd. Lars
Eggert ( reviewed the document for the IESG.
