RFC 2544 Test .

Inc. The four subtests that are specifically tested using the QT-600 are: – Throughput: Measures the maximum rate at which none of the offered frames are dropped by the device/system under test (DUT/SUT). © 2015 Viavi Solutions. This measurement is a good indication of the buffering capacity of a DUT. This measurement can be used for reporting the performance of a network device in an overloaded state such as broadcast storms. – Back-to-back or burstability: Measures the longest burst of frames at maximum throughput or minimum legal separation between frames that the device or network under test will handle without any loss of frames. – Frame loss: Defines the percentage of frames that should have been forwarded by a network device under steady state (constant) loads that were not forwarded due to lack of resources. | Viavi Confidential and Proprietary Information 33 . Latency is the time interval that begins when the last bit of the input frame reaches the input port and ends when the first bit of the output frame is seen on the output port. This measurement translates into the available bandwidth of the Ethernet virtual connection. It is the time taken by a bit to go through the network and back.Purpose of RFC 2544 RFC 2544 describes six subtests. – Latency: Measures the round-trip time taken by a test frame to travel through a network device or across the network and back to the test port.

TrueSpeed remote Tests

(Required License, MTS5800 instrument)

Purpose of TrueSpeed Remote Test

Traditionally, a service provider tests Ethernet services using RFC 2544 or other
types of layer 2/3 tests, but the customer’s business applications run on the TCP
layer
TrueSpeed provides tests and measurements of TCP Throughput which
represents the application layer network performance
The benefits of running the RFC 6349 compliant
TrueSpeedTM test include:
– Ensure end-customer satisfaction before service is activated and prevent
customer churn.
– Avoid future troubleshooting truck rolls and solve the bandwidth discrepancy
mystery by
applying best practices per RFC 6349.
– Prove to the end-customers (who use Iperf) that the CPE may be the problem.
