Title : Use of IGP Metric as a second TE Metric
Author(s) : F. Le Faucheur et al.
Filename : draft-lefaucheur-te-metric-igp-01.txt
Pages : 7
Date : 13-Nov-01
This draft describes a common practice on how the existing IGP
Metric can be used as an alternative metric to the TE Metric for
Constraint Based Routing of MPLS TE Tunnels. This effectively
results in the ability to perform Constraint Based Routing with
optimization of one metric (e.g. link bandwidth) for some TE Tunnels
(e.g. Data Trunks) while optimizing another metric (e.g. propagation
delay) for some other TE Tunnels with different requirements (e.g.
No protocol extensions or modifications are required. This text
documents current router implementations and deployment practices.

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
