Title : Benchmarking Methodology for Exterior Routing

This document defines a specific set of tests that vendors can use to

This memo will consider changes in forwarding performance while a router
is reconverging, but RFC 2544 remains the methodology document for
benchmarking forwarding performance.

feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"

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.
