Spirent TestCenter: Results Reporter - Does the RFC 2544 Latency report support Nanoseconds(ns)?

  • Currently the RFC-2544 displays Latency in micro seconds (usec).
    • Example:  0.123 us
  • Request is to have RFC-2544 display Latency in nanoseconds.
    • Example:  123 ns
  • Results Reporter
    • any version
  1. Load your RFC 2544 Latency Test Results database into Results Reporter. 
    • This is not really necessary but it's good to see values displayed while updating the templates.
  2. Highlight the RFC 2544 Test Results Summary View
    • Since this is a Latency Test, the RFC2544LatencyStats template should be shown on the main window. 
  3. Click on Show Template Editor
    • Step 2 allows the Template Editor to automatically select the "RFC2544LatencyStats.rtp" template file.
  4. Set column headers to show nsec instead of usec.
    • Go to the Tables tab in the Editor. (Both "D1DetailStats" and "AggThruFS" has Latency columns.)
    • Change the value to nanoseconds. This is just the column heading.
    • The Layout tab will show the changes.
  5. Go to Reported Stats tab and look for the three Latency fields.
    • For each of these fields insert *1000. Click "Update" after each change to see the "Value" columns update to it's ns value.
    • This change affects the Trial Summary Results
  6. Go to Computed Stats tab and look for the three Latency fields.
    • For each of these fields add set result [expr $result * 1000] at the bottom of the script.
    • This change affects the Test Summary Results
    • Note that this change did not update by clicking on any button. You need to save the template back to the Spirent folder and relaunch Results Reporter. 
      • C:\Program Files\Spirent Communications\Spirent TestCenter X.xx\Spirent TestCenter Application\Results Reporter\templates
  7. Final results is just moving the decimal over 3 places.
    • Compare the above snap shot values to the snap shot below.
