CT510-10G High-Speed LANforge-FIRE File-IO Traffic Generator

The CT510-10G is an excellent choice for testing high-performance File-IO servers, such as NFS, CIFS and iSCSI. The CT510-10G consists of a single 1U multicore-processor system with a dual 10 Gigabit Fiber NIC. The system can read at least 15Gbps of data if the file server is fast enough. The CT510-10G supports up to 2000 concurrent File-IO connections. Each connection can be NFSv3, NFSv4 or CIFS. At least 10 concurrent iSCSI connections are supported. NFSv3, NFSv4 and CIFS supports IPv6. Each connection appears as a unique PC to the file server, with it's own MAC, IP, routing table, and File-IO transport session(s). Additional systems can be clustered for increased traffic generation capacity.

The CT510-10G 1U rackmount chassis fits into a standard rack and is about 14 inches deep. It supports standard VGA, Keyboard, and Mouse interfaces for easy console/desktop access to the system. The rackmount chassis is relatively noisy, so it is better for a data center deployment than a desktop environment. Other form factors better suited for traveling or desktop use are also available. VoIP, Armageddon and WanLink features are priced separately. Please communicate your preferences to your sales representative. No additional hardware or software is required, but you may wish to manage the system using the LANforge GUI on a separate machine.

Quick Start Guide

  1. Connect Management ethernet port to Management network or management PC. If connecting directly to a PC, an ethernet cross-over cable should be used. Or, connect VGA, Keyboard, and Mouse to the chassis and manage it locally.
  2. Connect one or more traffic generating ports to the downstream side of the device under test. This usually is considered the 'client' side of the network.
  3. Connect one or more traffic generating ports to the upstream side of the device under test.
  4. Connect power plug to a standard US or European AC power source.
  5. If managing remotely, install the LANforge-GUI on a separate management PC or Laptop. Windows and Linux GUIs are supported: Select the correct one from the CDROM or Candela Technologies Download page and install it.
  6. The CT510-10G should now boot. If DHCP is enabled on the Management network, the CT510-10G will automatically acquire an IP address. If DHCP is not available, the IP address will be set to 192.168.1.101 by the LANforge scripts.
  7. Start the LANforge-GUI on the management PC, or the CT510-10G console if managing locally, and click the 'Discover' button. It should find the CT510-10G appliance and add the IP address to the drop-down box in the Connect widget. Press 'Connect' and you will be connected to the CT510-10G.
  8. Select the Layer 3, Layer 4 and other LANforge-FIRE related tabs in the GUI to see existing traffic connections and to modify them or add new ones. You can also view a real-time report of the test with the 'Display' button for some traffic types.
  9. LANforge can send Layer 3 traffic types between any two physical ports, so one can send traffic between port eth0 and eth1, eth0 and eth2, eth3 and eth4, etc. Use the Port Mgr tab in the GUI to configure the IP addresses for the interfaces as appropriate for your network and cabling.
  10. Any modifications take place immediately after you click 'Submit'.
