Satellites (?)
Satellites establish remote testing points in the enterprise or public network. Server enabled satellites can receive tests whereas Client satellites initiates tests. An MCS Satellite can be both Client and Server.

New Release Information for 11.2a (Full Release List)

11.2a, April 9th, 2022 (build 5820)

  • PUBLISHING: Satellite session ID values are now are now supported individually (SID1,SID2,SID3) as well as collectively (SID). This is provided to allow MCS workorder actions to automatically submit publications when the workorder data collection has finished.
  • NEW FEATURE: Enhancements in the satellite management framework increased the max satellite scale limit from 10,000 satellites to 30,000+ satellites.
  • DEPRECATION: MCS monitoring tasks is no longer supported. Monitoring tasks are still supported In all remote satellites.
  • CORRECTION: Testing between two MCS Satellites operating in a private network now operates correctly.
  • NEW FEATURE: The MCS Route Test now supports DSCP packet priority setting/monitoring. DSCP values are now reported on a hop by hop basis in the route table.
  • SECURITY: The MCS external application data IForward API now supports a new permitted domain white list for all iForward requests.
  • NEW FEATURE: MCS Published reports now support retention and automatic deletion. Publication reports now support individual retention values as well as a system configuration global default. Retention can also be disabled individually.
  • FORMAT CHANGE: The format for advanced filters parameter syntax has changed. This affects Publishing parameter files (PPFs) and MCS report requests.
  • NEW FEATURE: Automatic Satellite configuration download is now supported. This feature is provided to enable satellites to start without requiring end-user input. Supports MCS domain name or IP, MCS Work Order name and the MCS report session ID title.
  • PERFORMANCE: A wide range of resource improvements including external resources such as ISP name identification

Example Speed Usage Tests

Line View

The standard user inferface for the speed test.

Live Examples:

Application test: An application test simulates one data session between the client and the test server.

Multi User Capacity test: A capacity test simulates multiple user sessions between the client and the test server. This example simulates 4 downstream users.

Bandwidth test: Assess the highest available bandwidth for a connection.

HTTP test: A test that uses HTTP rather than sockets for running the test.

Dial View

A slightly more elaborate user interface.

Live Examples:

Application test: An application test simulates one data session between the client and the test server.

Multi User Capacity test: A capacity test simulates multiple user sessions between the client and the test server. This example simulates 4 downstream users.

HTTP test: A test that uses HTTP rather than sockets for running the test.

Web

The web test simulates a very basic download and upload test using pure HTML5 and JavaScript; no need for the BCS. However, the test is not as accurate.

Custom

Browser test JavaScript APIs can be used customize certain parts of the test process.

Live Examples:

Result Presentation: Exports the results of the test to the page itself.

Email Link: Put a link on the screen to allow the user to quickly send an email with the results.

Restart Test: Includes a button to restart the test upon completion
