Benchmarking of networking protocols consists in measuring and evaluating networking protocols, devices and networks, under reference conditions, relative to a reference evaluation. The goal of the benchmarking process is to enable fair comparison between different solutions of a networking problem, or between subsequent developments of a system under test. Benchmarking in wireless networks presents several specific challenges because of the difficulty to have both repeatable and realistic conditions. In this talk, we will report some common pitfalls in wireless benchmarking and present some lessons learned in the context of the OneLab2 project.
