The Benchmarking Methodology Working Group has traditionally
conducted laboratory characterization of dedicated physical
implementations of internetworking functions.  This memo investigates
additional considerations when network functions are virtualized and
performed in general-purpose hardware.

This document is a product of the Benchmarking Methodology Working Group of the IETF.
