The Advanced tab lets you configure additional parameters for a given test type. Each test type has its own specific parameters.
Verify the following Advanced Parameters for all test types:
  • Alternate Packet Address
    Specifies an alternate source IP address instead of using the default network address of the device that is discovered in
    CA Spectrum
    .
    The Alternate Packet Address field is available for all Cisco test hosts that support IOS IP SLAs Agent.
  • Alternate Packet Port
    Specifies an alternate packet port instead of using the default packet port of the device that is discovered in
    CA Spectrum
    .
    The Alternate Packet Port field is available for all Cisco test hosts that support IOS IP SLAs Agent.
  • Delete Messages
    Specifies whether to delete the messages that were downloaded during the test or to leave the messages on the test system.
    Default:
    False
    Note:
    Delete Messages is available for POP3 tests for SystemEDGE hosts only.
  • Download Content
    Specifies whether to download all images, frames, scripts, and applets with the core HTML code from the website or URL.
    Default:
    False
    Note:
    Download Content is available for HTTP and HTTPS tests for SystemEDGE hosts only.
  • Download Type
    Specifies whether the first or all messages are downloaded for POP3 tests.
    • First
      This option downloads only the first message for this user account.
    • All
      This option downloads all messages for this user account.
    Default:
    First
    Note:
    Download Type is available for POP3 tests for SystemEDGE hosts only.
  • Fail On Content Error
    Specifies whether any errors encountered while downloading images, frames, scripts, and applets cause the test to fail.
    Default:
    False
    Note:
    Fail On Content Error is available for HTTP and HTTPS tests for SystemEDGE hosts only.
  • Filter Timeout Data
    Specifies whether the Performance tab the OneClick Component Detail panel displays all data or a subset of data minus timeouts.
    Default:
    True
  • Frame Depth
    The number of levels the test should traverse when downloading nested frames. The HTTP and HTTPS tests download all frames, images, external scripts, and applets during the page download. The measurement reflects the user experience when downloading a web page.
    Default:
    3
    Note:
    Frame Depth is available for HTTP and HTTPS for SystemEDGE hosts only.
  • HTTP Version
    Specifies the HTTP version (1.0 and 1.1) for HTTP tests.
    Default:
    1.1
  • Mail Body Size
    Specifies the size (in bytes) of the test message to send.
    Default:
    1000
    Note:
    Mail Body Size is available for SMTP tests for SystemEDGE hosts only.
  • Minimum Matches
    The minimum number of times the search expression must be found. If the search expression is not found at least as many times as you specify in this field, the test fails.
    Default:
    1
    Note:
    Minimum Matches are available for HTTP and HTTPS tests for SystemEDGE hosts only.
  • Outgoing User Name
    Specifies the outgoing user name for SMTP authentication for SystemEDGE hosts.
  • Outgoing Password
    Specifies the password for the outgoing user name for SMTP authentication for SystemEDGE hosts.
  • Packet Size
    Specifies the value (in octets) that limits the size of the packets that are used in the test.
    The Harmoni agent does not support packet size configuration.
  • Proxy Password
    Specifies the password for the Proxy User Name. The password is encrypted in the
    CA Spectrum
    database.
    Note:
    Proxy Password is available for HTTP tests for Cisco routers and HTTP and HTTPS tests for SystemEDGE hosts only.
  • Proxy Server
    Specifies the host name (the name or IP address) of the proxy server to use if the system from which you are testing does not have direct Internet access.
    Note:
    Proxy Server is available for HTTP and HTTPS tests for SystemEDGE hosts only.
  • Proxy URL
    Specifies the proxy URL for HTTP tests. For more information, see HTTP Tests.
  • Proxy User Name
    Specifies a valid user name to be authenticated on the specified proxy server.
    Note:
    Proxy User Name is available for HTTP tests for Cisco routers and HTTP and HTTPS tests for SystemEDGE hosts only.
  • Sample Count
    Specifies the number of times a test is performed during a test run.
    Default:
    5
    • For Cisco IP SLA tests, the agent supports a sample count of '1' only for all tests other than Jitter tests. For more information, see Considerations for CA eHealth and Cisco IP SLA Tests.
    • RTTMON may occasionally perform more than the specified sample count repetitions for a Service Performance Manager test.
    • The Harmoni agent does not support the configuration of sample count.
  • Text Match
    Specifies a regular expression or text string that you want to match on the pages you test.
    Note:
    Text Match is available for HTTP and HTTPS tests for SystemEDGE hosts only.
  • Type of Service
    Specifies the Type of Service (TOS) parameter for test packets that are sent by the test host. For example, create a response time test with the TOS parameter that VOIP uses and test the performance of the network in routing the packets.
    The Type of Service octet in an IP datagram header enables packets with different TOS values to be routed differently.
  • Use SSL
    Specifies whether to enable Secure Sockets Layer security in case the SMTP server requires SSL authentication.
    Default:
    False
    Note:
    Use SSL is supported for SMTP tests for SystemEDGE hosts only.
  • VRF Name
    Specifies the VPN routing instance for the test (Ping and Traceroute for Cisco and Juniper test hosts).
