Gigabit Ethernet Analyser

InfiniBand Displays:

The InfiniBand pod supports bi-directional transfers at 1X speeds (2.5Gb/sec). In addition to decoding all the native and management InfiniBand protocol, the analyzer also decodes IP packets. With the deepest memory option, the InfiniBand pod allows the user to store over 1GByte of InfiniBand traffic. Whenever errors are detected, the analyzer displays the 10b codes as well as the 8b.

It detects coding, framing, and disparity errors. The statistics display shows error rates, bus utilization, and a variety of other measurements. It maintains the features needed by hardware engineers such as multi-level triggering, filtering, state configuration, and timing analysis of InfiniBand packets. At the Command level, the InfiniBand analyser provides a big-picture view for testers who are trouble-shooting system level or application level issues. The State display provides decoding of each Double-word transfer for those needing to monitor InfiniBand software, device drivers, or firmware. For hardware engineers, the Timing Waveform display shows InfiniBand Link signal activity.

InfiniBand Capturing:

The Infiniband analyzer provides both timing modes and state modes. In timing mode, all transitions can be stored, while in state mode the capture can be configured to include...
  • All Events
  • Ordered Sets
  • Idle Data
  • Flow Control packets
  • Data Packets
  • All Errors

Custom State Modes can also be created.

Gigabit Ethernet Analyzer Capture Configuration


InfiniBand Triggering:

The InfiniBand Analyzer provides high-level trigger configurations for most of the common trigger scenarios. The
high-level triggers each provide drop-down boxes so the user
can select specific commands, addresses, etc from a list without memorizing opcodes or positions. The user can also create and save custom triggers.

InfiniBand Analyzer Trace Filtering:

The InfiniBand Analyzer provides commonly used high-level filter configurations. Some of the high-level filters provide drop-down boxes for configuration options. The user can also create and save custom filters.

InfiniBand Statistics:

The Real-Time Monitor can be easily configured by the user for almost any type of Statistical or Bit Error Rate measurement desired

The analyzer allows for examining captured data at the Command, State, and Signal levels. The different display formats can be individually displayed or simultaneously displayed. When displayed simultaneously, each display can be automatically synchronized with the others, or used independently. A histogram provides a graphical summary of trace activity for the entire trace and makes it easy to point and click to any position within the trace.

The MPAX's Capture Engine pushes protocol recording to new limits with the following features: Transitional Timestamping, Bandwidth-4.5 Gbytes/sec, Depth-Stores up to 4 Gbytes, Segmentable Trace Buffer

Custom Capture States

Triggering is used to stop the trace when a specific event or sequence of events occurs. The analyzer also provides for stopping when the buffer is full, or looping endlessly until the user manually stops the trace. High-Level triggering options are provided for each bus. The user can also create custom triggers using the powerful Trigger Sequencer. More Information

Custom Triggering

Pre-configured filters for each bus allow the user to conserve buffer space and reduce the stored data to those items that are of interest. Custom filters can also be created. More Information

Custom Filters

Dedicated hardware is provided for counting events. Software processes this data providing simple totals, or ratios of events per time or per other events, such as Transfers per Second, Transfers per Command, Errors per Second, or Data Transfers per Error.  These ratios are shown as Current Values, Average Values, and Peak Values, providing a summary of the changes over time.

The analyzer decodes many of the high-level protocols that are transmitted on each bus. The Command listing is typically used for displaying high-level protocols which may be transferred across a bus, while the State Listing typically displays native, low-level protocols.
