STCLive T&D Coordinated testing to another probe: Why does a 2 way (or Roundtrip) netquality test Q2Q run with 0% lost packets, but a 1 way netquality test to the same probe / same service suffers 100% packet loss?


STCLive T&D , coordinated testing to another probe.


Answer: Check the time protocols on both units via the “rtrv-dat” command. Both units should use the same Time protocol – either PTP or NTP.   If one unit is running with PTP and the other is running NTP, there will be a 100% loss of packets during the test.   Or if one probe has NTP and the other has "none", the test will likewise fail.

A note from the STCLive T&D user and admin guide:
Because All latency measurements are based on the time required for the server to receive the traffic and it is therefore important that the units are time-precisely synchronized with a network time protocol such as NTP or PTP
