NIST Net WAN Emulation Software does not work correctly

Hi everyone,


I downloaded NIST Net WAN Emulation Software below from CCO (http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/fe_util).

to measure WAAS performance in our lab.


Cisco-NISTnet3-disc1-v4.iso

NIST Net ISO, kernel 2.6.9-22. Added support of GigE and other HW. 4.0


And I installed NIST Net WAN Emulation Software into brand new DELL PowerEdge 1950 according to

the following document.


NIST Net WAN Emulation Software Installation and Configuration Note

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/products/ps6469/products_installation_and_configuration_guide09186a00804965e0.html


Installation has finished successfully but NIST Net does not work correctly with the following message

displayed continuously.


fast_rtc: lost around 26 interrupts at 8192Hz

or

fast_rtc: lost around 0 interrupts at 8192Hz


Why there is a differentiation as 26 or 0 is that it seems to depend select entry on the menu

that displayed by executing "./nistnet" command.


And I have to execute system restart (CNTL + ALT + DEL) to stop the message from being displayed

continuously.


I can not resolve this problem, so would you please let me know how I can resolve it to get NIST Net

work properly.


Your information would be appreciated.


Best regards,

The only workaround available currently is what you have done " Reloading the Device "

Thank you very much for your reply.

I understand it.

Hi snakayama,


I too downloaded the Cisco-NISTnet3-disc1-v4 and extract it into an CD.  But is there any other steps i need to do??


Coz when i boot the CD, it doesn't boot.


Do i need to put certain files into specific location?? Or is there any speical instruction i need to do??


Would appreciated any help on this as i have spent hours on this but it still couldn't boot up.


Cheers,

Hunt

Hi Hunt,


Unfortunately I wouldn't be able to answer your question clearly but I would like you to give the information that might help you.

How to install the  emulation package, version 2.0.12
http://www-x.antd.nist.gov/nistnet/install.html
(It is for version 2.0.12 not 4.0, however I think the basic procedure might be the same ...)


I hope this information help you.

Shinichi
