With simple remote commands, you can now reconfigure your entire SAS test rack.
- Connect/Disconnect storage enclosures
- Switch test equipment between multiple ports
- Forward one port to multiple outputs
The switch uses simple scripted control, or can be run from the TestMonkey GUI. Equipment can be set up without having to visit the rack. This greatly speeds up testing and allows more complex over-night runs.
Operating as a full cross-point switch, any 12Gb SAS port can be connected to any other. In addition, part/all of a port can be forwarded to another 1 or more other ports on a lane-by-lane basis.
Test equipment can now be inserted and removed automatically from the signal path. Signals can also be forwarded simultaneously to both a scope and an analyser with minimal effect on the signal.
