all your advice has helped get this up and running.. basic scripts to loop though different packet sizes and steam them through our switch (looking for lost packets)
What’s really interesting going forward is the pcap capabilities. (feel free to google Joby Aviation to get a context on what we’re doing)
for every flight, we capture the events in a pcap file. ( the aircraft uses ethernet for protocol communication. All aspects of the flight are captured as any of hundred of protocol packet types. We can end up with an hour’s worth of pcap (very large files). One test subset will be taking a pcap file and replaying it through our flight sim, making various modifications to packets as they go through my test harness (change crc, flip random bits, change protocol specific fields, and then send the packets out of the harness to the flight sim. I’m just starting to play around with the pcap capabilities .. Is it possible to do a
read packet pcap —> pc, running python which modifies various aspects of the packet —> output through another ethernet port
or does ostinato buffer the entire pcap file, then replay it?
if it is easier to talk via zoom about this, feel free to set up a meeting time, and i’ll work around it. We are in the Bay area in California, so PST)
p.s.. a lot of interest from various teams with your product.. Do you have site licenses or volume license capability?
