Adding TWAMP reflectors

TWAMP testing requires at least one TWAMP reflector, towards which the Netrounds Test Agent (acting as initiator) sends the test stream.

Adding TWAMP reflectors is done under Account > TWAMP. Here you define the reflectors that are available in your network and their corresponding host names or IP addresses. These TWAMP reflectors are then used as test points in TWAMP tests and monitorings, as described on the page TWAMP measurements.

To add a TWAMP reflector manually, click the Add button.

This dialog appears:

  • Name: The name of the TWAMP reflector.
  • Host: Host name or IP address of the TWAMP reflector.
  • Control port: Control port number for the TWAMP reflector. Leave empty to disable the control protocol (i.e. to use TWAMP Light).
  • Port: UDP port number for the TWAMP reflector.

Finish by clicking the Save button.

Uploading a list of TWAMP reflectors as a CSV file

Alternatively, instead of entering TWAMP reflectors manually in the user interface, you can upload a list of them as a comma-separated file (*.csv).

This file must have one TWAMP reflector per line, defined according to the following syntax:

name, host, control_port, test_port

The names of TWAMP reflectors cannot contain commas (,).

Please make sure that the file is encoded in UTF-8 format if it contains international characters. The encoding can be specified in the text editor settings.

Note: Uploading a TWAMP reflector list will overwrite all existing TWAMP reflectors. Items that are not included in the new uploaded list will be removed, which will cause all current and historical measurement data related to those TWAMP reflectors to be deleted.
