Description

The AppCritical Network Analysis test helps to identify issues with network performance between two systems. AppCritical is not a Veritas product.
 

For Windows

1. Download, and extract, the AppCritical standalone sequencer. This is available from the AppNeta website:  https://www.appneta.com/sas

2.  Run the sas.exe executable (Figure 1).  The test  should  be run on both the local, and remote, systems in order to obtain results from both directions. This will  generate an *.xml file and place it into a folder called "out" which is located in the same directory where the sas.exe executable is located.

Figure 1 - Running the sas.exe executable on Windows

Syntax 
sas -t <address_of_target_machine> -b 20

Example:sas -t 192.168.1.1 -b 20
Note: For networks that are slower than 1000 Mpbs ("Gigabit Ethernet") omit the -b 20.
 
3. Send the *.xml files to Support for analysis.

 

For Unix and Linux

1. Download, and extract, the AppCritical standalone sequencer. This is available from the AppNeta website:  https://www.appneta.com/sas
   
2. Run the extracted binary (Figure 2). The test  should  be run on both the local, and remote, systems in order to obtain results from both directions.  This will generate an *.xml file and place it into a folder called "out" which is located in the same directory where the executable is located.

Syntax 
./sas-linux -t <address_of_target_machine> -b 20

Example:./sas-linux -t 192.168.1.1 -b 20
Note: For networks that are slower than 1000 Mpbs ("Gigabit Ethernet") omit the -b 20.
 
3. Send the *.xml files to Support for analysis.
