In the world of wireless ad-hoc networking, the problem of service discovery is essential and important in order to detect and access services between mobile computers. This has hence led to the advent of numerous Service Discovery Protocols (SDPs). We recognize the need for a legitimate framework for the qualitative and quantitative evaluation of SDPs in mobile networking contexts such Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs). This paper presents Benchmark for MANET (BENCHManet), an initiative development of a comprehensive and sophisticated benchmark composed of reference tests, each of which reflects the configuration found in various realistic MANET applications. The presented benchmark allows for a more practical and comprehensive evaluation, as well as a fair comparison of SDPs.
