UHD400 1.0.27

Release Features(s)

  • Support for BGP/BGP+ passive mode Ixia-C, UHD400 and Ixia Chassis & Appliances(Novus, AresOne). If passive_mode of a peer is set to true, it will wait for the remote peer to initiate the BGP session.
  • User needs to set devices[i].bgp.ipv4/v6_interfaces[j].peers[k].advance.passive_mode to true for enabling passive mode.

  • When layer1[i].speed is not explicitly set, the current speed of underlying test interface shall be assumed.

  • This allows setting of layer1 MTU in tests to run on setups with different port speeds on Ixia-C and Ixia Chassis & Appliances(Novus, AresOne) without any modifications.
      otgConfig.Layer1().Add().
          SetName("layerOne").
          SetPortNames(portNames).

Bug Fix(s)

  • Issue where devices[i].bgp.ipv4/v6_interfaces[j].peers[k].v4/v6_routes[m].communities was not being sent properly for Ixia Chassis & Appliances(Novus, AresOne) is now fixed.

  • Support for deprecated control, action and update APIs (set_transmit_state, set_link_state, set_capture_state, update_flows, set_route_state, send_ping, set_protocol_state, set_device_state) have been removed. Please use following set_control_state, set_control_action and update_config APIs instead of the previous ones. Please refer to go utils and python utils for further details usage.

  • For flow.duration.continuous type of traffic in Ixia-C, intermittent issue where last few packets in a traffic flow were not accounted for in flow_metrics.frames_rx statistics after stopping a flow is fixed.
  • Proper error mesage is propagated to user if user has used community edition of Ixia-C (instead of licensed edition) and invoked any API/Configuration not supported by it. example: Device configuration is not supported in free version of controller.

Known Issues

  • Supported value for flows[i].metrics.latency.mode is cut_through.
  • The metric loss in flow metrics is currently not supported.
  • When flow transmit is started, transmission will be restarted on any existing flows already transmitting packets.

ixia-c-operator 0.3.1
ixia-c-gnmi-server 1.11.10
ixia-c-one 0.0.1-3927

Release Features(s)

  • A new property egress_packet inside flow has been introduced to configure expected packet shape as it is received on the test port.
      eth := flow.EgressPacket().Add().Ethernet()
      ipv4 := flow.EgressPacket().Add().Ipv4()
    
  • A new property metric_tags has been introduced for fields inside headers configured in egress_packet to enable tracking metrics for each applicable value corresponding to a portion of or all bits inside the field.
      ipv4Tag := ipv4.Dst().MetricTags().Add()
      ipv4Tag.SetName("flow_ipv4_dst")
      ipv4Tag.SetOffset(24)
      ipv4Tag.SetLength(8)
    
  • As of this release, enabling metric_tags is only supported on ethernet.src/dst, ipv4.src/dst, ipv4.tos. Support for more fields shall be added in upcoming releases.

  • Limitations:

    • The total number of tracking bits available on an ixia-c Rx port is 12 bits. Out of these some of the bits are needed for tracking flows, example 2 flows need 1 bit, 4 flows need 2 bits, 8 flows need 3 bits etc. The sum of metric_tag.length for each field inside each header configured in egress_packet cannot exceed the remaining bits available on the Rx port.
    • The total number of tracking fields that can be configured across a set of flows which have the same Rx port, is two.
  • A new property is introduced in get_metrics.flow to fetch tagged metrics.

  • User can set get_metrics.flow.tagged_metrics.include=false not to include tagged_metrics in the flow_metrics response.
  • Specific tagged_metrics can be fetched by setting get_metrics.flow.tagged_metrics.filters[i].name.

Known Issues

  • Supported value for flows[i].metrics.latency.mode is cut_through.
  • The metric loss in flow metrics is currently not supported.
  • When flow transmit is started, transmission will be restarted on any existing flows already transmitting packets.

Release v0.0.1-2120

27th August, 2021

About

This build contains support for capture filter, setting GRE checksum flag, redirecting Ixia-c controller log to stdout and some bug fixes.

Build Details

Component Version
Open Traffic Generator API 0.4.12
snappi 0.4.25
ixia-c-controller 0.0.1-2120
ixia-c-traffic-engine 1.4.0.9

New Feature(s)

  • Capture filters are now supported. Multiple patterns can be specified in the configuration.
  • Controller log is now redirected to stdout. docker logs can now be used to access Ixia-c controller logs.
  • Checksum field in GRE header now can be set.

Bug Fixes

  • All patterns of IPv6 value now can be set for increment and decrement properties in flow header fields.
  • Default value of step for decrement properties in flow header fields is now set correctly.

Known Issues

  • The metric loss in flow metrics is currently not supported.

Release v0.0.1-1622

25th June, 2021

About

This build contains support for protocols GRE and VXLAN (RFC 2784), enabling/disabling flow metrics and some bug fixes.

Build Details

Component Version
Open Traffic Generator API 0.4.0
snappi 0.4.0
ixia-c-controller 0.0.1-1622
ixia-c-traffic-engine 1.4.0.1
ixia-c-app-usage-reporter 0.0.1-36

New Feature(s)

  • Flow header configuration for protocols GRE and VXLAN (RFC 2784) are now supported.
  • Flow metrics is now disabled by default to allow transmitting packets with unaltered payload(i.e. without any timestamps and instrumentation bytes embedded in it).
  • Flow metrics (including metrics that are its sub-properties, e.g. latency and timestamp) can now be explicitly enabled on per-flow basis.

Bug Fixes

  • ixia-c-controller can now safely serve multiple parallel requests from different clients preventing any undefined behavior.
  • Port metrics can now be fetched for ports which are not part of flow configuration.
  • Providing port locations for ixia-c-traffic-engine running in unsupported mode will now throw a user-friendly error.
  • Default values for increment and decrement properties in flow header fields are now aligned per Open Traffic Generator API.

Known Issues

  • Checksum field in GRE header currently cannot be set.
  • The metric loss in flow metrics is currently not supported.

Release v0.0.1-1388

31st May, 2021

About

This build contains support for flow delay and some bug fixes.

Build Details

Component Version
Open Traffic Generator API 0.3.10
snappi 0.3.20
ixia-c-controller 0.0.1-1388
ixia-c-traffic-engine 1.2.0.12
ixia-c-app-usage-reporter 0.0.1-36

New Feature(s)

  • Ixia-c now supports delay parameter in flow configuration. Refer to v0.3.10 of the Open Traffic Generator API specification for more details.

Bug Fixes

  • The flow configuration parameter inter_burst_gap when specified in nanoseconds can now be set to a value larger than 4.2 seconds.
  • Invalid values can now be set for the phb (per hob behavior) field in the DSCP bits in the IPv4 header.
  • The set_config method will return an error when flows are over subscribed.
  • Fixed an error in calculation for packet counts when duration is set in terms of fixed_seconds.

Known Issues

  • The metrics frames_rx_rate and bytes_rx_rate in port statistics are not calculated correctly and are always zero.
  • The metric min_latency_ns in flow statistics is not calculated correctly and is always zero.
