1) To add stream click “Add Stream” under Edit Menu Or right-click port and choose “Add Stream”
2) Configure Stream:
2) Insert test payload, TID: This is the stream ID used to identify Latency/Jitter/Packet Loss.
3) Description: Stream Description text.
4) Stream State:
Disabled: Stream is not started when traffic is ON nor is it included in port rate usage.
Suppressed: Stream is not started when traffic is ON, but it is included in port rate usage. (“Paused State”) can be switched to enabled on the fly.
Enabled: Stream is started when traffic is ON.
5) Stop After: Send specific amount of packets and stop traffic.Also used in sequential mode as stream packet quantity.
6) Stream transmission profile:
Percent is L1 rate including IFG + Preamble.
Configuring on the field actually changes all the others accordingly.
Grayed text can be edited. To have it set you to need one more click.
7) Burst used to configure bursty traffic.
Density sets the inner IFG inside the burst.
There is a trade-off between the stream rate and the Burst rate.
8) Error injection: Can send specific errors on the fly
–but only when traffic is ON.
9) Insert frame checksum, FCS: Un-checking this checkbox will cause error frames.
10) Packet length:
Fixed–for min value =x all packets will be x
Incrementing–for min value =100 and max value=200
Butterfly–for min=100 max=200
Random–random values between min. and max.
Mixsends internet mixture of :
11) Payload Type:
Incrementingmeans “000102030405…FF00010203…” provides built-in data integrity check for payload.
PRBS: provides Pseudo Random Bit Sequence of 2^31-1 pattern, No data integrity with adding Payload checksum in port properties.
Random: provides Random bit Sequence pattern, No data integrity with adding Payload checksum in port properties.
Pattern: mean you can set your own custom pattern.
