Port Statistics

This page describes the ValkyrieManager port statistics page. The page displays statistics information for the currently selected port and all streams defined on that port.

The page will only display data for a single port at a time. If you want to monitor statistics data for multiple ports at a time please use the Global Statistics page.

Port Transmit Statistics

This area contains statistics for all data transmitted by the port.

Command in TX Toolbar

The area contains a toolbar with the following commands:

Command Explanation
Clear TX Counters Clear the current TX statistics counters for this port.
(checkbox) If checked the TX statistics counters for this port will be affected when the Clear Statistics command is executed in the Global Statistics panel.
Mark Set the font color of the current counter values to gray. Any counter value that changes afterward will revert to blue. This makes it easy to check if a value changes over time.
Save Allow you to save the current counters to a CSV text file.

Main Transmit Statistics

Statistics Type Explanation
Total Traffic for Port This row shows statistics counters for all traffic transmitted on the port regardless of type. This is the sum of the traffic sent without test payload and the traffic sent for each active stream.
Without Test Payload This row shows statistics counters for the part of the transmitted traffic that is sent without test payload.
Stream Traffic This branch contains a row for each stream currently active on the port.

Error Injection

This section shows the number of errors manually injected by the user for each possible error type.

Miscellaneous Control

This section shows the number of transmitted ARP/NDP and PING requests and replies, MAC training packets and IGMP Joins.

Port Receive Statistics

This area contains statistics for all data received by the port.


Commands in RX Toolbar

The area contains a toolbar with the following commands:

Command Explanation
Clear RX Counters Clear the current RX statistics counters for this port.
(checkbox) If checked the RX statistics counters for this port will be affected when the Clear Statistics command is executed in the Global Statistics panel.
Mark Set the font color of the current counter values to gray. Any counter value that changes afterward will revert to blue. This makes it easy to check if a value changes over time.
Save Allow you to save the current counters to a CSV text file.
Calibrate Latency When pressed the current average latency value will be saved as the calibrated latency offset.
Poll Always Normally a port is only polled for statistics counters when it is visible in a statistics panel, such as this panel or the Global Statistics panel. But if you want the port to be polled always you can check this box. This function can be useful if you want to monitor the state of the port over a long period of time.

Main Receive Statistics 

Statistics Type Explanation
Total Traffic for Port This row shows statistics counters for all traffic received on the port regardless of type. This is the sum of the traffic received without test payload and the traffic received for each TID.
Without Test Payload This row shows statistics counters for the part of the received traffic that is sent without test payload.
Filter Traffic This branch contains a row for each active filter on the port.
Test Payload Traffic This branch contains a row for each TID received on the port.

Test Payload Specific Counters 

A number of sections show counters received for each TID:

Counter Type Explanation
Test Payload Errors This section contains a row for the payload errors received for each TID on the port.
Test Payload Latency This section contains a row for the payload latency measured for each TID on the port.
Test Payload Jitter This section contains a row for the payload jitter measured for each TID on the port.

Misc. Counters 

This section show statistics for various other counter types.

Counter Type Explanation
Arp Req. Received ARP/NDP requests
Arp Repl. Received ARP/NDP replies
Ping Req. Received PING requests
Ping Repl. Received PING replies
FCS Errors Received packets with FCS errors
PAUSE Received PAUSE frames
Gap Count Number of gap counts detected
