Abstract

Current network benchmarking methodologies are focused on physical networking components and do not consider the actual application layer traffic patterns and hence do not reflect the traffic that virtual networking components work with. The purpose of this document is to distinguish and highlight benchmarking considerations when testing and evaluating virtual networking components in the data center.
