iSWAT™ Test Solution is the protocol testing and analyzing tool of choice for IP storage networking developers using the iSCSI protocol interface. This application suite is the first protocol-tester on the market that incorporates all the professional features and functionality required for iSCSI protocol testing within a single, feature-rich test environment. iSWAT provides IP Storage Area Network (SAN) developers with a mode for testing iSCSI behavior in heterogeneous, high bandwidth IP SAN or Gigabit Ethernet.


Highlights

  • iSCSI traffic generation and monitoring
  • Initiator and Target testing modules
  • Error injection commands and report generation
  • Built-in iSCSI failure detection and auto recovery
  • SCSI drive target as well as target emulation
  • Incorporates many sample scripts
  • Both interactive and script-based testing modes
  • SCSI and iSCSI command sets implemented

    Designed to meet a variety of development-specific needs, the iSWAT product line offers a number of modular software units for basic testing requirements, such as initiator traffic generation, while also providing advanced features, such as error injection and multi-device emulation.

    IP Storage developers using the iSWAT benefit from a convenient and cost-effective test solution for iSCSI-based product debugging, with reduced overhead.

    Additionally, iSWAT is a powerful demonstration tool for vendors looking for a way to demonstrate the functionality of their products with integrated iSCSI technology, without the need to actually establish an IP Storage Area Network (SAN).


iSWAT Initiator Module

iSWAT Initiator implements the iSCSI protocol internally, using a standard NIC adapter instead of an expensive Host Bus Adapter (HBA). This allows comprehensive control over the iSCSI protocol, including error injection and built-in error detection. iSWAT Initiator allows both interactive and script based command execution


iSWAT Target Module

iSWAT Target implements the iSCSI protocol internally, using a standard NIC adapter. This allows comprehensive control over the iSCSI protocol, including error injection and built-in error detection. Target emulation is optional in a high level SCSI command module, as well as in a low level SCSI script module.

Initiator development may be facilitated with iSWAT Target for high performance as well as for high storage capacity. Using an internal RAM buffer enables a very high performance test condition. A high capacity target (up to the available free space of system drive) may also be emulated. A SCSI Drive Target option may be added for both high performance and high storage capacity tests.


SCSI Drive Target Module

Installable on top of the iSWAT Target module, this optional module enables real SCSI target functionality, practically replacing the need for a real IP Storage device to be installed in a test network – at considerable cost savings and less complexity.
