The purpose of this document is to describe methodology specific to
the benchmarking of multicast IP forwarding devices.  It builds upon
the tenets set forth in RFC 2544, RFC 2432 and other IETF
Benchmarking Methodology Working Group (BMWG) efforts.  This
document seeks to extend these efforts to the multicast paradigm.

The BMWG produces two major classes of documents: Benchmarking
Terminology documents and Benchmarking Methodology documents.  The
Terminology documents present the benchmarks and other related
terms.  The Methodology documents define the procedures required to
collect the benchmarks cited in the corresponding Terminology

This document is a product of the Benchmarking Methodology Working
Group of the IETF.
