Python OO API package to manage Ixia IxNetwork traffic generator
TGN - Traffic Generator IXN - IxNetwork
This package implements Python OO API for Ixia IxNetwork traffic generator.
The package works on top of multiple low level APIs:
IxnRestWrapper - a Python wrapper of IXN native REST API.
Available for IXN versions that supports REST. Allows client-less operation of IXN scripts.
IxnTclWrapper - a Python wrapper (using Python Tk package) over IXN native Tcl API (IxTclNetwork).
Available for all IXN versions. More useful when developing and debugging.
pip instsll pyixnetwork
Prerequisite: When using Tcl - IxNetwork application installed.
ixnetwork.test.ixn_samples you will find some basic samples.
See inside for more info.
The current version supports the following test flow:
- Load configuration -> Get/Set attributes -> Start/Stop traffic -> Get statistics.
- Basic operations - get/set attributes, get/create children.
- Load configuration - load configuration (ixncfg), reserve ports and analyze the configuration
- Start/Stop - arp, ping, protocols, traffic items
- Statistics - read views
- Save configuration
The package also support Add/Remove objects, so it supports the following test case:
Build configuration -> Start/Stop traffic -> Get statistics.
But this is less documented at this version.
TestCenter and IxNetwork
IxNetwork package and TestCenter extend the same base classes from TrafficGenerator. In some future version we plan TrafficGenerator a complete abstract API so tests that work in the basic test flow will be able to run over IxNetwork and TestCenter seamlessly.
