    3-7-2. Description of Each Test Step 1: Checking for lost packets Check whether packet loss has occurred by referring to the PCS-XG Series models log. The procedure and an explanation of how to read the log are given below. If packet loss is detected in the line having the string “OPLOG” of the log, go to Step 2. When no packets have been lost, this indicates that there is no problem in the network or PCS-XG Series main unit.
  • Page 89 Step 2: Capturing Network Packets Capture network packets by using packet capturing software that helps you to determine where the packet losses occur. The checking procedure is described in Step 3 and the subsequent steps. Preparations: Connect a mirroring switch between the PCS-XG Series main unit and the network switch, and then connect a PC for packet capture to the monitor port of the mirroring switch.
  • Page 90 Step 4: Checking for differences in the sequence numbers Confi rm whether there are any packets that exist on the sender side but which are lost on the receiver side. This can be checked by comparing the sender-side log with the receiver-side log. If there are any differ- ences between the two logs, then it can be deduced that the packet loss occurs in the network.
