SunVTS 3.0 Test Reference Manual

SunVTS User Interfaces

You can run SunVTS tests from various interfaces: The CDE and OL graphical user interfaces, or the TTY interface. SunVTS tests can also be run individually from a shell command line, using the command line syntax for each test (refer to "Running a Test from the Command Line"). Table 1-1 describes the various SunVTS system interfaces. Refer to the SunVTS 3.0 User's Guide for more information on these interfaces.

Table 1-2 SunVTS System Interfaces

SunVTS System Interfaces 


Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) 

Users can select tests and test options by pointing and clicking with a mouse button in the CDE or OL interface. 

TTY Interface 

Users can run SunVTS from a terminal or modem attached to a serial port. This feature requires that you use the keyboard instead of the mouse, and it displays one screen of information at a time.  

Command Line execution 

Lets users run each of the SunVTS tests individually from a shell command line using the command line syntax. Each test description in this book contains the corresponding command line syntax. 


Provides access to SunVTS testing through the SyMON monitoring tool. With this interface, the SunVTS tests run in a mode that is non-intrusive to other system activity.
