This document describes the terminology for benchmarking link-state
Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) route convergence.  The terminology
is to be used for benchmarking IGP convergence time through
externally observable (black-box) data-plane measurements.  The
terminology can be applied to any link-state IGP, such as IS-IS and
OSPF.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; 
it is published for informational purposes.
