This document provides common terminology and metrics for benchmarking
the performance of sub-IP layer protection mechanisms.  The performance
benchmarks are measured at the IP layer; protection may be
provided at the sub-IP layer.  The benchmarks and terminology can be
applied in methodology documents for different sub-IP layer protection
mechanisms such as Automatic Protection Switching (APS), Virtual Router
Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), Stateful High Availability (HA), and
Multiprotocol Label Switching Fast Reroute (MPLS-FRR).  This document 
is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
published for informational purposes.

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