             Benchmarking Methodology for EVPN and PBB-EVPN
                      draft-ietf-bmwg-evpntest-03

Abstract

   This document defines methodologies for benchmarking EVPN and PBB-
   EVPN performance.  EVPN is defined in RFC 7432, and is being deployed
   in Service Provider networks.  Specifically this document defines the
   methodologies for benchmarking EVPN/PBB-EVPN convergence, data plane
   performance, and control plane performance.
