Technical Summary

  Consumers of IP network performance metrics have many different uses
  in mind.  The memo provides "long-term" reporting considerations
  (e.g, days, weeks or months, as opposed to 10 seconds), based on
  analysis of the two key audience points-of-view.  It describes how
  the audience categories affect the selection of metric parameters and
  options when seeking info that serves their needs.

  discussed for several years.  The document as it is now, reflects WG
  consensus, with nothing special worth noticing.

  Director is Wesley Eddy.
