This memo describes a framework for Traffic Engineering (TE) in the
Internet. The framework is intended to promote better understanding
of the issues surrounding traffic engineering in IP networks, and to
provide a common basis for the development of traffic engineering
capabilities for the Internet. The principles, architectures, and
methodologies for performance evaluation and performance optimization
of operational IP networks are discussed throughout this document.
The optimization goals of traffic engineering are to enhance the
performance of IP traffic while utilizing network resources
economically and reliably. The framework includes a set of generic
requirements, recommendations, and options for Internet traffic
engineering. The framework can serve as a guide to implementors of
online and offline Internet traffic engineering mechanisms, tools,
and support systems. The framework can also help service providers
devise traffic engineering solutions for their networks.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
