Technical Summary SIP has become a widely-used standard among many service providers, vendors, and end users. Although there are many different standards for measuring the performance of signaling protocols, none of them specifically address SIP. The scope of this document is limited to the definitions of a standard set of metrics for measuring and reporting SIP performance from an end-to-end perspective. The metrics introduce a common foundation for understanding and quantifying performance expectations between service providers, vendors, and the users of services based on SIP. The intended audience for this document can be found among network operators, who often collect information on the responsiveness of the network to customer requests for services. Working Group Summary Working Group Consensus was smoothly achieved. Document Quality There are several implementations of earlier versions of the I-D, based on contacts with the authors. The document was reviewed by the SIPPING WG. The Contributors and Acknowledgements sections list many of the reviewers who deserve mention: Carol Davids, Marian Delkinov, Adam Uzelac, Jean-Francois Mule, Rich Terpstra, John Hearty and Dean Bayless.
