SmartBits FBC-3602A SmartMetrics Fibre Channel module allows SAN
equipment manufacturers, storage system vendors, Storage Service Providers
(SSPs), IT managers, and test labs to categorize the true performance,
reliability, and quality of Fibre Channel-based SAN equipment and fabrics. The
3602A module greatly simplifies the testing process by emulating hundreds of
attached devices such as servers, storage systems, and switches, thereby
eliminating the need for large, complex test environments.
- Full line-rate traffic
generation and analysis at 1 and 2 Gbps (FBC-3602A).
- Generate up to 512
independent data streams and analyze up to 64K streams at any given time.
- Simulate an entire network
of end-devices and switches.
- Stress F-ports, FL-ports,
and E-ports of Fibre Channel switches.
- Support Point-to-Point and
Loop (public and private) modes.
- Perform loop initialization,
fabric login, and name server registration for one or many devices.
- Emulate up to 126 source
devices on a loop.
- Support per-stream payload
and frame size (4 to 16 KB) settings and per-port transmission mode
settings (continuous, single-burst, multi-burst, continuous multi-burst,
- Real-life traffic shaping
through random frame length, inter-frame gap, and frame content settings.
- Arbitrary stream sequencing
enables the mixing of various frame rates.
- Per-port statistics provide
counters for transmitted frames, received frames, received bytes, and
received CRC errors.
- A 16MB capture buffer
enables the logging and exporting of filtered events to external protocol
