Controller Application Overview

The controller application can be installed onto a Windows
PC or a Linux based machine that is running Java.

Through an intuitive GUI, the controller application allows
users to configure and control the functionality of the OakGate appliance(s),
such as:

      Discovering
and connecting drives

      Configuring
appliances

      Configuring
IO traffic parameters

      Configuring
andusing peripheral devices (such as a third party power controller)

      Starting,
running and stopping IO traffic

      Automating
tests

      Creating
and running directed tests

      Using
the analyzer to isolate and identify errors

Appliance Overview

The OakGate appliance is a Linux based desktop or rack-mount
system, loaded with OakGate’s proprietary software suite (including the
driver), used in conjunction with the controller application, for testing DUTs
of all popular storage types.
