Testing Overview

You use NV Test Manager to create and run tests, and to view the analysis results. Running a test lets you record and analyze the performance of your application while network impairments are imposed.

Working with a new test typically includes the following steps:

Types of tests

  • Quick Tests. Are defined by a limited set of parameters that define the network impairments. For details, see Create and Run Quick Tests.
  • Advanced Tests. Are defined by a comprehensive set of parameters that define the network impairments. For details, see Create and Run Advanced Tests.

Run Modes

Each HPE Network Virtualization test must be assigned a run mode. The run modes determine whether or not multiple tests can run concurrently on NV Test Manager. The available run modes are:

  • Concurrent. Multiple concurrent-mode tests can run concurrently on the NV Test Manager. You cannot begin to run a single-mode test on the NV Test Manager when a concurrent-mode test is running.

  • Single. Only one single-mode test can run on the NV Test Manager at any given time. If a single-mode test is running on NV Test Manager, no other single or concurrent-mode tests can run on the NV Test Manager.

    For details on how to run tests, see Creating and Running Tests.
