 IPv6, IPv4 and Coexistence Updates for IPPM's Active Metric Framework
                      draft-ietf-ippm-2330-ipv6-06

Abstract

   This memo updates the IP Performance Metrics (IPPM) Framework RFC
   2330 with new considerations for measurement methodology and testing.
   It updates the definition of standard-formed packets in RFC 2330 to
   include IPv6 packets, deprecates the definition of minimal IP packet,
   and augments distinguishing aspects of packets, referred to as Type-P
   for test packets in RFC 2330.  This memo identifies that IPv4-IPv6
   co-existence can challenge measurements within the scope of the IPPM
   Framework.  Example use cases include, but are not limited to
   IPv4-IPv6 translation, NAT, or protocol encapsulation.  IPv6 header
   compression and use of IPv6 over Low-Power Wireless Area Networks
   (6LoWPAN) are considered and excluded from the standard-formed packet
   evaluation.
