Technical Summary This draft examines considerations for benchmarking virtualized network functions (VNFs) and their supported infrastructure, with consideration for general-purpose hardware, and considers benchmarking both physical and virtual network functions in the same fashion, allowing for comparison between the two, where possible. Working Group Summary There has been a fair amount of work done on this draft, and progress made on revisions, feedback, and comments. Several presentations have been made in the room during IETF meetings, and followup and discussion taken to the BMWG list. This draft is particularly useful, given the popularity of VNF's within the industry. Personnel Sarah Banks is Shepherd, Joel Jaeggli is AD.E AD>.'
