    Rate Measurement Test Protocol Problem Statement and Requirements

Abstract

   This memo presents a problem statement for access rate measurement    for test protocols to measure IP Performance Metrics (IPPM).  Key    rate measurement test protocol aspects include the ability to control    packet characteristics on the tested path, such as asymmetric rate    and asymmetric packet size.
