Technical Summary
 
 This document establishes terminology to standardize the description
 of benchmarking methodology for measuring eBGP convergence in the
 control plane of a single BGP device.  Future documents will address
 iBGP convergence, the initiation of forwarding based on converged
 control plane information and multiple interacting BGP devices.  This
 terminology is applicable to both IPv4 and IPv6.
