For today’s SAS and SATA developers and integrators, getting to the root of a problem can be especially difficult when there isn’t an obvious trigger condition. Troubleshooting is further complicated by ever-climbing storage capacities, data rates, and protocol complexity. Faster and deeper analyzers are needed to keep up. Traditionally, those needing to capture large amounts of traffic have been faced with limited trace buffers, long waits to view the data, slow searches, and slow saving. SerialTek has overcome the old limitations with the BusXpert Series of SAS/SATA analyzers.
The BusXpert uses advanced technologies such as the industry’s first PCI Express x4 uplink to the host (550 MB/s), up to 72 GB of buffer, hardware accelerated gigabit Ethernet, pre-indexed and compressed trace data, multiple analysis processors, and instant display of the captured data.
The BusXpert also features easy-to-use triggering, pre-/post-filtering, textual search and sequence search, and many different displays of the captured traffic. The analyzer is available in a variety of configurations to fit specific needs for buffer size, port-count, protocols, and budget. The BusXpert breaks free of past analyzer limitations and lets users spend more time on development and debug efforts.
