Analyzing the HEP traffic flows in detail is critical for understanding how the various complex systems developed by the LHC experiments are actually using the network. In this talk we will describe the work of the Research Networking Technical Working Group in the area of packet marking and flow labeling. The goal is to enable identification of any research and education network traffic anywhere along its path. We will describe our current status, the technical details about marking and labeling and our near term planned activities.
