Remote Testing

Remote Testing using the Weylon application allows for increased visibility into customer issues. The process consists of 3 steps.

Testing Results

Reports for data visualization of test results are currently in development.

Provision Test

First, provision the desired test in the ConnexCS Control Panel. Go to Global Weylon. This will list any existing tests.

Create Test Configuration

Click the to create a new testing configuration.

  • Name: Name the new test, ideally something descriptive so you know what it will test
  • ID: This is randomly generated by the system
  • Show Output: When Enabled, it will display real-time results while the tests are running on the customer equipment. When Disabled, a progress bar is displayed, so there isn't confusion about what all the results mean while the test is still running.

Add Criteria

Next to Criteria, click the to specify the test parameters

  • Type: Select to run Ping, Simulate Media, or Trace Route
  • Host: Specify the IP or FQDN
  • Level: There are 3 options to choose from which will vary the intensity of the test:
    • Basic- single, quick test
    • Standard- captures moderate amount of data without being too detailed
    • Advanced- detailed soak test which can last several minutes

Save work

  • Click Save for the Criteria. Add additional test Criteria as needed.
  • Click Save to complete the test setup.

Customer Setup

Next, the customer will need to install Weylon on their Linux machine.
