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.
