1 Introduction

This specification describes the Software Quality Metrics (SQM) Client-to-Service Version 2 Protocol, which is used to send software instrumentation metrics to the SQM service and for the client to download client-specific control data. The protocol extends the concepts of the Software Quality Metrics (SQM) Client-to-Service Protocol, as specified in [MS-SQMCS]. Implementers are recommended to be familiar with the SQM Client-to-Service Protocol and with the message structure used by the protocol as specified in [MS-TPXS].
