As this is one of the most important features of VantageManager, the user will spend most of their time on this page. Once the test templates configuration has been done, the user will only force on this page and do a test on this page.
Customers could perform their behaviors like that:

  • Add new test
  • Start test
  • Stop test
  • Input serial number
  • Select port map
  • Check detail test log
  • Select the number of test windows
  • Filter test

Add New Test

Once the user finished their configuration and assigned their test ports, you can enter “Test Now” UI page and click this button to add a new test. Note that Vantage’s test is independent, a new test would not overwrite the old test. Each test will be saved in the chassis until you delete it manually.


DUT

This input box allows the user to input their DUT’s serial number, this serial number will be saved in the test result and test report. The user could use it to search their test results and test report in VantageManager.

There are three ways that in which you can input the serial number to the box.

1.By keyboard, typing it manually.

2.Input the serial number with a scanner.

3.Scan the MAC address as a serial number.

It can be done by Vantage automatically.
