24 Chassis Data Plane Test (30 min)

The chassis data plane test validates the chassis backplane by sending Ethernet frames from blade to blade across the backplane.

Important: F5® recommends running chassis-level tests on only one blade at a time; otherwise, these tests might fail if other blades are running chassis-level tests or passing traffic.

Before you can run this test on the chassis:

  • At least two blades are required (the test scales up to 8 blades).
  • All blades installed in the chassis must be booted into EUD and sitting idle at the EUD menu.

Start the test on only one of the blades running EUD; the duration of the test is approximately two minutes per blade. Once the test has started, do not attempt to initiate tests from any other blades installed in the chassis.

When you start the test, you see this message:

                  
Executing Chassis Data Plane Test (30 min) ..

Please make sure all the other blades running EUD
in the chassis are sitting idle.
Otherwise unexpected results may occur.
