10.1 Running Testarc

Running Testarc requires the creation of a file that contains data for the agent to process. For example, place alarm data in a file named test.dat. If the test is successful, the agent processes the alarms and displays them in the Operations Center console Alarms view.

To run testarc:

  1. From the /OperationsCenter_install_path/bin directory, enter the following at the command line prompt:

    testarc test.dat [‑1|0|delay_value] hostname 
    [port|port_range] [‑1|iterations] [‑s] [socket_interval]

    where hostname is the hostname being tested, and port is the port number where the agent is listening.

    and where test.dat is the file with sample data to process.

    For more information on the testarc command parameters, see Section 10.3, Understanding the Testarc Command Parameters.
