RFC 8372 ("MPLS Flow Identification Considerations") describes the
requirement for introducing flow identities within the MPLS
architecture.  This document describes a method of accomplishing this
by using a technique called "Synonymous Flow Labels" in which labels
that mimic the behavior of other labels provide the identification
service. These identifiers can be used to trigger per-flow operations
on the packet at the receiving label switching router.

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 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
