The IESG contact persons are Warren Kumari and Benoit Claise. A URL of this Internet Draft is: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-bmwg-ipv6-tran-tech-benchmarking/
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 scalability. 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. Personnel Al Morton in the Document Shepherd. Warren Kumari is the Responsible AD.
