Introduction

In previous chapters of this book, we discussed how an operator can exploit the process of traffic engineering to custom-engineer the paths used to carry traffic flows within a network. We also investigated how the first step in this process was to gather traffic statistics from network nodes. One mechanism by which this data can be gathered for MPLS traffic engineering tunnels is the MPLS Traffic Engineering MIB (MPLS-TE MIB). This MIB can also be used by a traffic engineering ...
