What is DVQattest?
DVQattest is a pure software test application that uses distributed software agents to test and troubleshoot the performance of VoIP, IP video, and network applications and services.
What kinds of tests does DVQattest support?
DVQattest generates test VoIP and video conferencing calls with a range of codecs, payload types and video formats, using integrated VQmon
technology to measure voice and video stream quality, signaling performance and overall network health in real time. Additional tests can assess the performance and functionality of network applications and services such as web, email, DHCP and DNS, and identify and diagnose network transport impairments such as packet loss, jitter and delay.
Do I need special hardware to run DVQattest?
No. DVQattest Agents are pure software applications for Microsoft Windows, Linux and Android environments and are not tied to any proprietary vendor platform.
Where can I install test agents?
DVQattest Agents can run on VMs, servers, PCs, and mobile devices, and can be embedded directly into set-top boxes, routers, CPE and other networking equipment. Wherever they are deployed, test agents run unobtrusively in the background, ready to execute tests on command.
How many agents do I need?
Depending on the network size and scope, you may need anywhere from a small number of test agents up to hundreds or (in very large networks) thousands. There are no restrictions on the number of agents you can install; however, each agent must have a valid license key in order to be used. Using DVQattest's pool licensing option, you can install as many agents as you like, anywhere you like, and use a certain number of agents at any one time.
How do I run tests?
is used as the controller application for DVQattest Agents. In the SQmediator Reporter web user interface, you can easily configure test plans, execute tests and view test results in real time. As an alternative, test agents can interface with third-party management systems via a web services API, or managed using a standalone GUI application that runs on most OS platforms.
