Technical Summary

   Measuring broadband service on a large scale requires a description
   of the logical architecture and standardization of the key protocols
   that coordinate interactions between the components.  The document
   presents an overall framework for large-scale measurements.  It also
   defines terminology for LMAP (large-scale measurement platforms).

Working Group Summary

  The Working Group process was serious and a relative large number of 
  participants participated. Some of the points that required clarification 
  and further editing were related to passive monitoring and to privacy. 
  ll ended in consensus behind the document as it was forwarded for 
  approval and publication.

Document Quality

  The document was very carefully reviewed and discussed by a 
  large number of participants in the WG, because it contains key
  information concerning the scope, architecture and components of 
  the recommended solutions. Several issues were debated for many
  months, the resulting document includes a strong consensus of the 
  participants about the goals (and non goals) of LMAP and the path
  to be taken by the IETF to provide a standard solution.
