The network performance tool measures network performance between a Delphix Engine and an environment host. You must have added an environment in order to use this tool.
This transmission control protocol (TCP) throughput test uses TCP port 50001 by default. The port can also be configured on a per-test-run basis. For the duration of a given throughput test, a server on the receiver will be listening on this port. For a transmit test, the receiver is the remote host; for a receive test, the receiver is the Delphix Engine.
The network latency test measures network round-trip latency by transmitting ICMP echo requests (like the ping utility) and measuring the time to receive replies from the remote host. To execute a test:
- Login as a domain user to the Delphix Engine CLI using ssh.
Create a network latency test.
delphix> network test latency delphix network test latency> create delphix network test latency create *>
You must set remoteHost to the name of an environment host already configured in the Delphix Engine. (You should press tab after the "=" (equal sign) to auto-populate and confirm registered destinations). Use 'get' to see other optional arguments. Modify the test parameters as needed and commit to start the test.
