Unmanaged large buffers in today's networks have given rise to a slew
of performance issues.  These performance issues can be addressed by
some form of Active Queue Management (AQM) mechanism, optionally in
combination with a packet-scheduling scheme such as fair queuing.
This document describes various criteria for performing
characterizations of AQM schemes that can be used in lab testing
during development, prior to deployment.

This document is a product of the Active Queue Management and Packet Scheduling Working Group of the IETF.
