Consumers of IP network performance metrics have many different uses
in mind.  This memo provides "long-term" reporting considerations
(e.g., hours, days, weeks, or months, as opposed to 10 seconds),
based on analysis of the points of view of two key audiences.  It
describes how these audience categories affect the selection of
metric parameters and options when seeking information that serves
their needs.  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.

INFORMATIONAL: This memo provides information for the Internet community.
