When evaluating the performance of a Differentiated Services (DS) edge node with the MGEN tool there is a problem in the measurement of the Assured Forwarding (AF) service traffic. An AF flow processed by a boundary node conditioner, may be separated in three different components, which cannot be distinguished by the MGEN tool. This paper proposes a modification of the MGEN tool which can differentiate and measure each AF component.
