This memo provides the supporting test plan and results to advance
RFC 2679 on one-way delay metrics along the Standards Track,
following the process in RFC 6576.  Observing that the metric
definitions themselves should be the primary focus rather than the
implementations of metrics, this memo describes the test procedures
to evaluate specific metric requirement clauses to determine if the
requirement has been interpreted and implemented as intended.  Two
completely independent implementations have been tested against the
key specifications of RFC 2679.  This memo also provides direct input
for development of a revision of RFC 2679.  This document is not an 
Internet Standards Track specification; it is published for 
informational purposes.

This document is a product of the IP Performance Metrics Working Group of the IETF.
