    Starting an RFC 2544-Based Benchmarking Test

    You can start or stop an RFC 2544-based benchmarking test. You can start or stop all of the test names that are defined on a router, or start or stop a specific test name. You can also stop a test based on its test identifier. You can also clear the statistical counters associated with the test. When you trigger an RFC 2544-based benchmarking test, it passes through a series of states. These states are displayed in the Test state field in the brief or displayed output information of the show services rpm rfc2544-benchmarking command.

    Note: The RFC 2544 test is stopped at the initiator automatically after the test successfully completes all of the test steps. You need not explicitly stop the test. However, at the reflector, you must explicitly enter this command to stop the test after the test is completed at the initiator.

    The test session is supported in out-of-service mode for the underlying service. You must not transmit any traffic to the UNI port, configured as a generator or a reflector, that is being tested during the duration of the test.

    To start a configured RFC2544 test:

    1. From the View selector, select Device View.

      The workspaces that are applicable to this view are displayed.

    2. From the Junos Space user interface, click the Deploy icon on the Connectivity Services Director banner.

      The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.

    3. From the View pane, click the plus sign (+) beside the My Network item in the View pane to expand the tree and select the device node you want for which you want to manage the RFC2544 test.

      The device type selected within the device model tree is highlighted.

    4. From the Tasks pane, select the OAM functionality that you want to configure. To manage an RFC2544 test for a device, select OAM > RFC2544 Test.

      The Manage RFC 2544 Tests page is displayed.

    5. Select the check box beside a previously configured RFC2544-based benchmarking test that you want to commence.

      A confirmation dialog box is displayed prompting you to confirm whether you want to start the test. Click OK to confirm.

    Tip: Apart from starting or stopping an RFC 2544-based test from Build mode of Device View for a particular device, you can also create, start, or stop an RFC 2544-based test from Monitor mode of Service View for a particular service configured on a device. To administer such tests for a service, select Service View from the View selector, click the Monitor icon on the Connectivity Services Director banner, and from the View pane, drill-down the Network Services > OAM > RFC2544 Tests tree to select a service name. The RFC Tests tab is displayed on the right pane. In the table of listed RFC 2544 tests, you can click the Start or Stop buttons to commence ot terminate a test.
