Service Function Chain(SFC) is a ordered set of service functions. Packets flow restrictively at the service functions according to the order. To enable a network service, operator composes the service function chain logically. Though SFC is efficient where network/ service requirements are dynamically changing, the reliability of SFC should be guaranteed. This memo describes the considerations for benchmarking SFC reliability.
