                     Traffic Management Benchmarking


   This framework describes a practical methodology for benchmarking the    traffic management capabilities of networking devices (i.e.,    policing, shaping, etc.).  The goals are to provide a repeatable test    method that objectively compares performance of the device's traffic    management capabilities and to specify the means to benchmark traffic    management with representative application traffic.
