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. Working Group Summary This document is the product of the Benchmarking Methodology Working Group. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed for the IESG by David Kessens.
