Destination Attributes

These attributes may be used to describe the receiver of a network exchange/packet. These should be used when there is no client/server relationship between the two sides, or when that relationship is unknown. This covers low-level network interactions (e.g. packet tracing) where you don’t know if there was a connection or which side initiated it. This also covers unidirectional UDP flows and peer-to-peer communication where the “user-facing” surface of the protocol / API doesn’t expose a clear notion of client and server.

[1]: When observed from the source side, and when communicating through an intermediary, destination.address SHOULD represent the destination address behind any intermediaries, for example proxies, if it’s available.
