             Benchmarking Methodology for EVPN Multicasting
                    draft-vikjac-bmwg-evpnmultest-00

Abstract

   This document defines methodologies for benchmarking IGMP proxy
   performance over EVPN-VXLAN.  IGMP proxy over EVPN is defined in
   draft-ietf-bess-evpn-igmp-mld-proxy-02, and is being deployed in data
   center networks.  Specifically this document defines the
   methodologies for benchmarking IGMP proxy convergence, leave latency
   Scale,Core isolation, high availability and longevity.
