Technical Summary This memo proposes to advance a performance metric RFC along the standards track, specifically RFC 2679 on One-way Delay Metrics. Observing that the metric definitions themselves should be the primary focus rather than the implementations of metrics, this memo describes the test procedures to evaluate specific metric requirement clauses to determine if the requirement has been interpreted and implemented as intended. Two completely independent implementations have been tested against the key specifications of RFC 2679. Working Group Summary The normal WG process was followed and the document has been discussed for about 2 years. The document as it is now, reflects WG consensus, with nothing special worth noticing. Document Quality There are relevant implementations as the document describes actual work done with those implementations. Personnel Henk Uijterwaal is the document shepherd, and the responsible AD is Wes Eddy.
