Technical Summary

   There are benchmarking methodologies addressing the performance of
   network interconnect devices that are IPv4- or IPv6-capable, but the
   IPv6 transition technologies are outside of their scope. This
   document provides complementary guidelines for evaluating the
   performance of IPv6 transition technologies.  More specifically,
   this document targets IPv6 transition technologies that employ
   encapsulation or translation mechanisms, as dual-stack nodes can be
   very well tested using the recommendations of RFC2544 and RFC5180.
   The methodology also includes a metric for benchmarking load

Working Group Summary

   Once the Working Group agreed on the approach taken in this draft,
   development of the draft was straightforward and WG consensus was 
   smooth. No issues raised during IETF LC.

Document Quality

   Document is clear (and provides a nice introduction to
   the technology as well!). 
   Review of key v6 experts was obtained, see Acknowledgements.
