Dear BMWG List Members!

On the basis of our experience with RFC 8219, we have made four 
recommendations to upgrade RFC 2544 in our new draft "*An Upgrade to 
Benchmarking Methodology for Network Interconnect Devices*".

Could you please read and comment it?

It is really short: we tried to summarize the essence of our 
recommendations. We are happy to work out the details, if there is 
interest / support in BMWG.

Any feedback is welcome!

Best regards,

Gábor Lencse

A new version of I-D, draft-lencse-bmwg-rfc2544-bis-00.txt
has been successfully submitted by Gabor Lencse and posted to the
IETF repository.

Name: draft-lencse-bmwg-rfc2544-bis
Revision: 00
Title: An Upgrade to Benchmarking Methodology for Network Interconnect 
Document date: 2020-05-20
Group: Individual Submission
Pages: 9
Status: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-lencse-bmwg-rfc2544-bis/
Htmlized: https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-lencse-bmwg-rfc2544-bis-00

RFC 2544 has defined a benchmarking methodology for network
interconnect devices. We recommend a few upgrades to it for
producing more reasonable results. The recommended upgrades can be
classified into two categories: the application of the novelties of
RFC 8219 for the legacy RFC 2544 use cases and the following new
ones. Checking a reasonably small timeout individually for every
single frame in the throughput and frame loss rate benchmarking
procedures. Performing a statistically relevant number of tests for
all benchmarking procedures. Addition of an optional non-zero frame
loss acceptance criterion for the throughput measurement procedure
and defining its reporting format.

Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
