Folks,

 

The NGFW performance draft
(https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-bmwg-ngfw-performance-06) was
reviewed in the virtual BMWG meeting yesterday. One item that proved to be a
bit interesting  the discussion was around the definition of "Throughput" in
section 6.3. We used what we thought was appropriate wording from RFC 2647,
section 3.4 - Bit Forwarding Rate. The concern raised was specifically our
use of the word Throughput. There was general consensus from the BMWG that
this was confusing and for clarity sake we should use something else as the
accepted BMWG definition of Throughput was defined well in RFC 1242, 3.17 -
Throughput.  This discussion devolved into a circular one. It was suggested
that some folks from NetSecOPEN and some folks from the BMWG get together on
a call to come up with proposed wording that would be acceptable to
everyone. I am looking for a few people from here to volunteer. Please let
me know if you are interested.

 

Maciek Konstantynowicz and Al Morton have already volunteered.  The plan is
to setup a call with the BMWG volunteers and a small number from NetSecOPEN
to discuss. Our goal is to reach consensus on suitable wording that we can
bring back to the group.

 

Let me know if you are interested and I will reach out to discuss timing.

 

Brian
