	Most SLAs only cover on-net services, I recommend having a good
on-net server for testing purposes and knowing your immediate upstream
and peer upstreams test points.  I do recommend that most carriers have
an iperf3/iperf2 test point.  You may find your carriers have one as
well, even if it's not listed in their support pages.  

	I've found this useful when you suspect some problem, including
a link hashing problem that only impacts a few flows.
