Packet probing is an important Internet measurement technique, supporting the investigation of packet delay, path, and loss. Current packet probing techniques use Internet Protocols such as the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP), the User Datagram Protocol (UDP), and the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). These protocols were not originally designed for measurement purposes. Current packet probing techniques have several limitations that can be avoided. The IP Measurement Protocol (IPMP) is presented as a protocol that addresses several of the limitations discussed.
