   Test Plan and Results for Advancing RFC 2680 on the Standards Track


   This memo provides the supporting test plan and results to advance    RFC 2680, a performance metric RFC defining one-way packet loss    metrics, along the Standards Track.  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 2680.
