This document describes a framework for measuring sustained TCP
throughput performance in an end-to-end managed network environment.
This document is intended to provide a practical methodology to help
users validate the TCP layer performance of a managed network, which
should provide a better indication of end-user experience. In the
framework, various TCP and network parameters are identified that
should be tested as part of the network verification at the TCP layer.
