In this example, you will learn how to use Safire to create a test case for test the performance of your firewall. Go to Dashboard and click Testing > Test Cases, then click CREATE NEW. You will be directed to New Test Case page.
Click Testing > Test Cases to start creating a new test case
Select Network Topology
On the New Test Case page, select the network topology that best matches the network your firewall is deployed. There are four options:
- Enterprise Internal Segmentation
- Enterprise Security Perimeter
- Data Center Internal Segmentation
- Data Center Security Perimeter
New Test Case: Choose a network topology
Select a Firewall Under Test
From the drop-down list, select a firewall under test for this test case. If you cannot find it in the list, click the button to create a firewall under test. To learn how to create a new firewall under test, go to section Create New Firewall Under Test.
New Test Case: Choose a firewall under test
Enter firewall’s two interface addresses, for example 10.0.0.1 and 184.108.40.206. The interface on the left connects to Safire’s client port, and the other to Safire’s serve port. If the interfaces are VLAN enabled, enter the VLAN ID accordingly.
Choose a port speed for Safire’s two test ports to operate at. Please note, based on Safire’s port type (SFP+ or RJ45), you will see port speed options. The figure below shows the speed options of optic port type 10G/1G SFP+.
New Test Case: Configure testbed
Review and Save Test Case
