test-interface (RFC 2544 Benchmarking)


Junos OS Hierarchy Level

Junos OS Evolved Hierarchy Level


Specify the logical interface on which the RFC 2544-based benchmarking test is run.

For Junos OS, if you configure an inet family and the test mode to initiate and terminate test frames on the same device, the interface you configure is not effective. Instead, the test is run on the egress logical interface that is determined using route lookup on the specified destination IPv4 address. If you configure an inet family and the test mode to reflect the frames back on the sender from the other end, the logical interface is used as the interface to enable the reflection service (reflection is performed on the packets entering the specified interface). If you not configure the logical interface for reflection test mode, a lookup is performed on the source IPv4 address to determine the interface that hosts the address.

For Junos OS Evolved, you can configure this statement for only family ccc or ethernet-switching. You cannot configure this statement for a Layer 3 reflector (family inet).
