Run a Test from a Mobile Device

NV Test Manager has two user interfaces:

  • The standard UI runs on desktop and laptop computers. It includes the full NV Test Manager functionality, enabling you to create and run all NV tests.

  • The mobile UI runs on mobile devices. It contains a subset of the full NV Test Manager functionality, enabling you to run tests from your mobile device.

This topic describes how to use the mobile UI.

Access NV Test Manager on your mobile device

Create and run a test from a mobile device

When you create a new test from a mobile device, you create a simplified Quick Test. The new test includes only a single flow. The flow includes all network communication between the mobile device and all other IP addresses. You cannot add additional flows to the test. You can specify only whether to capture packets, and the network profile to apply when the test runs. You can select an existing profile or specify a custom profile.

Note: If a test requires transactions, use the desktop version of NV Test Manager to create the transactions and to mark the beginning and the end of the transactions, while you use your mobile device to perform the transactions.

To create and run a test from a mobile device:

  1. Open NV Test Manager on your mobile device, as described above.

  2. Tap the Create new test button .
  3. In the Test Configuration tab, select whether to capture packets when the test runs.

    Set Packet Capture to On if you want to capture network packets when the test runs. Capturing packets enables the test results to be analyzed in depth after the test has been run. For details, see Analyzing Test Results.

  4. From the Profile list, select an existing network profile, or select Custom to define custom network parameters for the test.
  5. Tap the Run button .

    While the test is running, NV Test Manager displays the amount of data that has been sent from the specified client IP address and received by the client IP address. These values are the "Total Client out Throughput" and "Total Client in Throughput" respectively.

  2. Tap any of the transactions in the test to display the transaction details.
