Routers in an operational network are simultaneously configured
With multiple protocols and security policies while forwarding
traffic and being managed. To accurately benchmark a router for
deployment it is necessary that the router be tested in these
simultaneous operational conditions, which is known as Stress
Testing. This document provides the Methodology Guidelines for
performing Stress Benchmarking of networking devices.
Descriptions of Test Topology, Benchmarks and Reporting Format
are provided in addition to procedures for conducting various
test cases. The methodology is to be used with the companion
terminology document . These guidelines can be used as the
basis for additional methodology documents that benchmark specific
network technologies under accelerated stress.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
