This document describes terminology for the benchmarking of
devices that implement traffic control using packet classification
based on defined criteria.  The terminology is to be applied to
measurements made on the data plane to evaluate IP traffic control
mechanisms.  Rules for packet classification can be based on any
field in the IP header, such as the Differentiated Services Code Point
(DSCP), or any field in the packet payload, such as port number.  This 
memo provides information for the Internet community.

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