COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Clarifying the differences to the tests in RFC2889 addresses my discuss. Thanks
and sorry for the delay! I still think describing these tests in a more general
form and then (just) discuss if there are specific things to consider when
applying these tests for dc testing would have been the better approach but I
do understand well that this work only focussed on dc so far and it would be
quite some more work to make it more generic.

Old comments:

Please provide the appropriate references for DSCP and COS!

Also I find the name of section 6 confusing ("Incast Stateful and Stateless
Traffic ") because your microburst test (section 4) is basically also incast
testing but without TCP cross-traffic. Further the terms stateful and stateless
are also confusing to me; I'd usually use adaptive and constant bit rate
(CBR)/non-adaptive; or is stateful/stateless the commonly-used term in
benchmarking?
