Microsoft RAS Port Test

This test reports the performance statistics pertaining to every port of the Remote Access Service (RAS) device on the computer.

Target of the test : A Microsoft RAS Server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every RAS port.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameters Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.

Host

The host for which this test is to be configured.

Port

The port at which the specified host listens. The default port is Null.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Descriptiom Measurement Unit Interpretation

Bytes transmitted

Indicates the rate at which bytes were transmitted.

Bytes/Sec

 

Bytes received

Indicates the rate at which bytes were received.

Bytes/Sec

When viewed along with the Bytes_transmitted measure, this measure serves as a good indicator of the traffic on the network.

Frames transmitted

Indicates the number of frames transmitted per second.

Frames/Sec

 

Frames received

Indicates the number of frames received per second.

Frames/Sec

 

Total errors

Indicates the number of CRC, Timeout, Serial Overrun, Alignment, and Buffer Overrun errors per second.

Number

 

Compression ratio for bytes sent

Indicates the compression ratio for the bytes being transmitted.

Percent

 

Compression ratio for bytes received

Indicates the compression ratio for the bytes being received.

Percent

 

Total connections

Indicates the number of remote access connections.

Number

 

CRC errors

Indicates the current number of CRC errors for this port.

Number

CRC errors occur when the frame received contains erroneous data.

Timeout errors

Indicates the current number of timeout errors for this port.

Number

Timeout errors occur when an expected packet is not received in time.

Serial overrun errors

Indicates the current number of serial overrun errors for this port t.

Reqs/Sec

Serial Overrun errors occur when the hardware cannot handle the rate at which data is received.

Alignment errors

Indicates the current number of alignment errors for this port.

Number

Alignment errors occur when a received byte is different from the expected byte.

Buffer overrun errors

Indicates the current number of buffer overrun errors for this port.

Number

Buffer Overrun errors occur when the software cannot handle the rate at which data is received.
