LeCroy Introduces I/O Virtualization Support in the PCI Express Summit™ Protocol Analyzer

LeCroy Corporation, a leading supplier of oscilloscopes and serial data test solutions, announced today a new analysis package for its Summit T2-16 Protocol Analyzer that will support testing and debugging in I/O virtualization based applications. LeCroy will support the new industry Single-Root I/O Virtualization standard (SR-IOV 1.0) and the Multi-Root I/O Virtualization standard (MR-IOV). Both of these technologies are PCI-SIG® workgroup extensions to the PCI Express standard that make it possible for a single PCI Express system to behave simultaneously as several different machines using shared hardware.
“Virtualization is a key trend in enterprise, and the PCI-SIG's Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) technology nicely complements Intel's own Directed I/O (VT-d) technology in providing higher performance I/O for virtualized systems,” said Jim Pappas, Director of Initiative Marketing for Intel Corporation. “Tools such as the PCI Express I/O Virtualization analysis package from LeCroy will help companies reduce the complexity of development.”
The industry is developing this technology for several reasons, including an increase in cores per socket, reducing network costs, increasing system resiliency, and eliminating redundancy in peripherals and ports across network infrastructures.
"The LeCroy analyzer played a significant role in our various testing procedures," said Rich Warwick, VP of Engineering and Operations, NextIO, Inc. "Specialized features such as analyzing PCIe Multi-Root TLPs and DLLPs, and flow-control error checking in transaction and link layers helped make our development processes even more effective and efficient."

LeCroy’s Summit T2-16 IOV analysis package addresses IOV potential problem hot spots with IOV focused analysis views, statistics, and reports.
“Native IOV will significantly improve performance for PCI Express devices,” said John Wiedemeier, Product Marketing Manager for PCI Express, LeCroy Corporation. “This new analysis package targeted at virtualization applications will increase productivity for developers by presenting IOV traffic in an understandable way and help developers to quickly identify hard-to-find errors.”
LeCroy protocol analyzers have been at the forefront of PCI Express development. All LeCroy protocol analyzers feature a hierarchical display, real-time statistics, protocol traffic summaries, detailed error reports, powerful scripting, and the ability to create user-defined test reports which allow developers to troubleshoot intricate problems and finish their projects on time.
