Elements

Select Device option button and drop-down list box—Select the device on which the BERT Test is going to be performed. If you have not added any routers, the drop-down list box is empty.

Select Interface drop down list—Select the interface on which the BERT Test is going to be performed.

Add button— Adds the device-interface combination to the Selected Interfaces list.

Selected Interfaces list box— Displays the device combinations on which the BERT Test is going to be performed. Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT) is used to test the quality of links.

Remove button—Clears the selected combinations from the Selected Interfaces Combination list box.

Remove All button—Clears the Selected Interfaces list box.

BERT Algorithm drop down list—Select the BERT algorithm. This algorithm is the pattern to send in the bit stream and is used to test the quality of the links on the selected interfaces

Error Rate field—Enter a value in the Error Rate field. This can be an integer from 0 through 7, which corresponds to a bit error rate from 10-0 (1 error per bit) to 10-7 (1 error per 10 million bits). Ensure that the error rate value is between 0 and 7.

Period field—Enter a value in the Period field to specify the duration of the test. By default, the BERT period is 10 seconds.

OK button—Click OK to open the BERT Test Results dialog box.
