Modern forwarding devices attempt to minimize any control- and
data-plane disruptions while performing planned software changes by
implementing a technique commonly known as In-Service Software
Upgrade (ISSU).  This document specifies a set of common methodologies
and procedures designed to characterize the overall behavior of a
Device Under Test (DUT), subject to an ISSU event.

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