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
Delphix uses the Delphix Session Protocol (DSP) protocol to communicate between primary and replication engines.
Login to Delphix Engine using a Delphix administrator account such as delphix_admin. As soon as you login, you will get prompt with engine name.CODE
-bash-4.3$ ssh delphix_admin@delphix Password: delphix>
Create a DSP test.CODE
delphix> network test dsp create
Set the destinationType to DELPHIX_ENGINE to do a DSP test between two Delphix Engines. The default is REMOTE_HOST which executes a DSP test between a source or target host and the Delphix Engine.CODE
delphix network test dsp create *> set destinationType=DELPHIX_ENGINE
Use get to see other optional arguments. Modify the test parameters as needed and commit to start the test.CODE
