This memo provides clear definitions for Active and Passive
performance assessment.  The construction of Metrics and Methods can
be described as either "Active" or "Passive".  Some methods may use a
subset of both Active and Passive attributes, and we refer to these
as "Hybrid Methods".  This memo also describes multiple dimensions to
help evaluate new methods as they emerge.

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