Hi BFD experts,

We recently submitted a new individual contribution on BFD Performance Measurement. Please review the document and provide comments.

https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-am-bfd-performance/

This document proposes a mechanism to determine the smallest BFD transmit interval that can be supported on the link.  This is achieved by actively measuring the one-way delay for each BFD session and setting the BFD session intervals based on the measured delay. This allows the BFD session to adapt to the fastest rate feasible on the current active path.

The method described in this proposal is useful in networks where the network latency is high, or varies with time.  Trans-oceanic links and connectivity over geo-synchronous satellites are typical examples of links where the latency is high and the difference in latency on primary and backup paths can be significant. Another use-case is connectivity using satellites in mid-earth orbit (MEO) or low-earth orbit (LEO).  In these systems the one-way delay, while it is low (25msec to 150 msec), varies with time.  This variation, based on various factors, can be as high as 30 msec.  With mobile receivers, such as ships, the delay when using such connectivity can be non-trivial to predict.  This requires an automated method to determine the optimal BFD interval to allow fastest possible recovery in case of failure.

Thanks,
Ashesh Mishra
