To obtain repeatable results in modern networks, test descriptions
need an expanded stream parameter framework that also augments
aspects specified as Type-P for test packets.  This memo updates the
IP Performance Metrics (IPPM) Framework, RFC 2330, with advanced
considerations for measurement methodology and testing.  The existing
framework mostly assumes deterministic connectivity, and that a
single test stream will represent the characteristics of the path
when it is aggregated with other flows.  Networks have evolved and
test stream descriptions must evolve with them; otherwise, unexpected
network features may dominate the measured performance.  This memo
describes new stream parameters for both network characterization and
support of application design using IPPM metrics.

This document is a product of the IP Performance Metrics Working Group of the IETF.
