IOL INTERACT™ NVMe Testing Software

The IOL INTERACT software expedites and automates the in-house testing of NVMe SSDs and NVMe-oF products and is available for members of the UNH-IOL NVMe® Testing Services. It is also used to test for inclusion on the NVMe® Integrator’s List and the NVMe-oF Integrator’s List. IOL INTERACT is available for the following product types:

  • NVMe SSDs
  • NVMe/FC
  • NVMe/TCP
  • NVMe/RoCE
  • NVMe/iWARP

While most test requirements can be performed with the PC edition tool, a subset of tests specific to PCIe products are only available on the Teledyne-LeCroy edition, which requires low level traffic generation capability.

There are two primary versions of IOL INTERACT™, the PC edition, which works with a standard PC but does not capture low level PCIe bus trace data and the Teledyne-LeCroy edition, which works with a Teledyne-LeCroy Summit PCIe Exerciser to capture low level trace data from the PCIe bus.

Software Command Sets

Starting with UNH-IOL NVMe Conformance v15.0, we have begun to develop and offer the new I/O command sets based on technical specifications written by NVMe Org. 

Currently Offering Zoned Name Space (ZNS) 

The ZNS Command Set tests are offered as an additional add-on to IOL INTERACT and has test cases based on the ZNS 15.0 and ZNS 16.0 test plans. 

Customers with a membership in either the NVMe or NVMe-oF can purchase additional command sets to run over your desired transport. Customers with both NVMe and NVMe-oF memberships who purchase the ZNS add-on, will be able to use the ZNS command set tests over all the transports they have access to testing with, however ZNS over Fabrics is still in development. 

 

IOL INTERACT PC EDITION Software

The INTERACT PC EDITION implements a majority of the tests described in the UNH-IOL NVMe Conformance Test Suite. This tool can be used with PCIe based SSDs as well as NVMe-oF targets. and is designed to make device and test selections easy as well as speed up the performance of NVMe conformance testing. Note, this tool does not provide the low level trace data typically available from a bus analyzer.

IOL INTERACT Teledyne-LeCroy EDITION Software

lecroyedition

The INTERACT Teledyne-LeCroy EDITION runs as a stand-alone, automated application for implementing the tests described in the UNH-IOL NVMe Conformance Test Suite. This tool performs the tests required for listing a product on the NVMe Integrator’s List and works in conjunction with the Teledyne-LeCroy Summit PCIe Exerciser and Analyzer system. It uses the Teledyne-LeCroy Summit PCIe Analyzer to capture and save all trace data and logs for later inspection.
