Chapter 1
Setting Up the Windows
Ethernet Client
Each MediaNetwork Windows Ethernet client needs to be installed
properly to function in a MediaNetwork workgroup or in a LANshare
workgroup.
Topics in this chapter include:
•
Installation Prerequisites
•
Connecting the Windows Ethernet Client
Installation Prerequisites
The Windows Ethernet client software requires that you install several
software packages before you start an installation. Installing an Ethernet
client without the prerequisite software packages causes the client installer
to quit.
The Ethernet client requires the following software, depending on your
operating system:
•
Windows NT Service Pack 5 or 6a
•
Windows NT hotfix
Chapter 1 Setting Up the Windows Ethernet Client
•
Windows 2000 Service Pack 2
•
Windows 2000 hotfixes, if necessary
•
Internet Explorer 5.5 or later
For instructions on installing the necessary service pack, see the release
notes that came with your Windows workstation.
If you need to install Internet Explorer, a copy of the browser is provided
on the MediaNetwork CD-ROM in the directory \Extras\IE\IE5 (Internet
Explorer 5.5) or \Extras\IE\IE6 (Internet Explorer 6.0).
c
n
Failing to install the hotfixes can cause unpredictable results or
performance problems when you attempt to use the client.
Windows XP clients do not require hotfixes or service packs.
Windows NT Hotfix
Windows NT clients require the hotfix scsiport.sys. This update fixes a
problem that can cause a client to crash to a blue screen when applications
make SCSI bus scan calls. The hotfix is provided on the MediaNetwork
CD-ROM.
To install the hotfix:
1. Navigate to \Extras\HotFixes\NT40\Scsiport\ on the MediaNetwork
CD-ROM.
2. Double-click Hfx.exe.
The Hotfix Manager dialog box opens.
3. Click Install New Fix.
4. Follow the instructions provided to install the hotfix.
5. Click Done to close the Hotfix Manager dialog box.
6. Reboot the client.
16
Installation Prerequisites
Windows 2000 Hotfixes
Windows 2000 Ethernet clients are the Avid postproduction and broadcast
editor products clients. You need to install the correct hotfixes on these
clients as described in the following sections.
Windows 2000 Clients Running Service Pack 2
Windows 2000 clients require several hotfixes to improve system stability
and performance. These hotfixes currently resolve problems with
drive-letter assignments, hot-swap controllers, and drive-mode page
settings. The hotfixes are provided on the MediaNetwork CD-ROM.
For the best results, install the hotfixes from the folders in the following
order:
1. WebDAVServiceProvider (Q296441)
2. Service Rollup (w2kSP2SRP1)
To install the WebDAVServiceProvider hotfix:
1. Navigate to \Extras\HotFixes\Win2k\WebDAVServiceProvider on the
MediaNetwork CD-ROM.
2. Double-click the Q296441_W2K_SP3_x86_en.exe file.
The Windows 2000 Hotfix Setup dialog box opens when the
installation is complete.
3. Click OK.
4. Reboot the client.
To install the Service Rollup hotfix:
1. Navigate to \Extras\ServicePacks\Win2k\ on the MediaNetwork
CD-ROM.
2. Double-click the w2kSP2SRP1.exe file.
The Windows 2000 Hotfix Setup dialog box opens when the
installation is complete.
3. Click OK.
4. Reboot the client.

Chapter 1 Setting Up the Windows Ethernet Client
Connecting the Windows Ethernet Client
The Windows Ethernet client can connect to a MediaNetwork workgroup
through a PortServer Pro system and an Ethernet switch, or it can connect
to a LANshare workgroup through an Ethernet switch. You need to
connect the client’s Ethernet 10BASE-T/100BASE-T port to an available
10BASE-T/100BASE-T port on the Ethernet switch. Figure 1 and Figure 2
show the workgroup connections.

Connecting to a LANshare Workgroup
The Ethernet path between the PortServer Pro or the LANserver and
Ethernet clients must be a direct, full-duplex connection using the
Avid-supplied Ethernet switch. Avid does not support half-duplex
devices between the PortServer Pro or the LANserver and its clients,
or client connections using other switches or hubs.
Connecting the Windows Ethernet Client
c
When you are connecting the Ethernet client to the Ethernet switch,
use only Category 5 or Category 5e Ethernet cables. Using other
cables can cause client performance problems.
To connect the client’s Ethernet port to the Ethernet switch:
1. Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the rear
of the client (see Figure 3).

Chapter 2
Configuring the Windows
Ethernet Client
Each MediaNetwork Windows Ethernet client needs to be configured
properly and have the correct software installed to function in a
MediaNetwork workgroup or in a LANshare workgroup.
Topics in this chapter include:
•
Using Windows 2000 Power Options
•
Setting the Date, Time, and Time Zone
•
Configuring the Network Properties
•
Installing the Avid Products Software
•
Installing the Windows Ethernet Client Software
•

Chapter 2 Configuring the Windows Ethernet Client
Using Windows 2000 Power Options
Windows 2000 offers power options to help manage power consumption
on your Windows 2000 workstation. Avid recommends you do not use the
power options to cause your workstation to go into Standby or Hibernate
mode.
c
Two of the power options, Standby and Hibernate, can cause all the
drives connected to a workstation (both local drives and remote drives
connected through a MEDIASwitch) to go into an inactive mode. This
prevents the File Manager from seeing the drive set and rebooting.
Also, all clients with mounted workspaces are unusable until the File
Manager and the storage are available again.
Setting the Date, Time, and Time Zone
You need to set the date, time, time zone, and Daylight Saving Time
options correctly on the Windows client. This allows the “Synchronize the

Installing the Avid Products Software
Installing the Avid Products Software
The Windows Ethernet client requires a qualified version of the Avid
products software, which allows it to use the MediaNetwork storage or
LANserver storage when the client is connected to a MediaNetwork
workgroup or a LANshare workgroup. Before you install the Ethernet
client software, install the qualified version of the Avid products software.
To determine if you have a qualified version of Avid products software, see
the Avid Unity MediaNetwork Release Notes.
Installing the Windows Ethernet Client Software
Each Windows Ethernet client requires software that allows it to log in to
the workgroup, to mount accessible workspaces, and to read and write data
to those workspaces in real time. The Windows Ethernet client software is
provided on the MediaNetwork CD-ROM and might also be available for
network installation from the PortServer Pro system or the LANserver.
Installing Ethernet Client Software from the CD-ROM
To install the Windows Ethernet client software from the
MediaNetwork CD-ROM:
1. Insert the MediaNetwork CD-ROM in the Windows Ethernet client

Chapter 2 Configuring the Windows Ethernet Client
Additional Client Procedures
Avid recommends that you do the following:
•
Mount a workspace on the client (see the MediaNetwork Windows
Ethernet Client Quick Start Card).
•
Perform a throughput test on the client using the Avid Performance
Meter utility. This utility checks that the client connection is properly
established and that the workgroup is functioning correctly. For more
information about using the Avid Performance Meter utility, see
Appendix A.
Reconfiguring the Client Connection
You configure the IP address for the PortServer Pro system or the
LANserver to which a client is connected when you install the Windows
Ethernet client software. Normally, you do not need to change this address.
(The MediaNetwork Windows Ethernet client software does not currently
support connecting a client to any PortServer Pro system or LANserver
other than the one to which it is directly connected through the Ethernet
switch.) However, you can move the client and connect it directly to
another PortServer Pro system or LANserver.
28
Reconfiguring the Client Connection
To reconfigure the IP address of the PortServer Pro system or

(Writing)
The current mode of testing is Write operations.
Test Results Graph
The Test Results graph plots results measured over time. It is particularly
useful when you want to observe trends or patterns in performance.
For example, if another process is running that creates a periodic high
demand on the storage subsystem being tested, you might see this as a
periodic drop in observed throughput in the Test Results graph.
34

second) for recent I/O operations, plotted over time.
Peak Read or
Peak Write MS
The peak latency for individual I/O operations (either reads or
writes) that have been completed over a short period of time.
A high measurement indicates a longer period of time was
needed for the operation to complete.
Because only the highest (peak) measurement over a short
period of time is displayed, a single high peak could be
accompanied by many low-latency operations that do not
appear in the graph.

2. Adjust the custom test parameters described in the following table, as
required:
Parameter
Description
File Access
Method
Avid Performance Meter supports more than one interface or
protocol for accessing data. This option allows you to control
which interface is used. Choose one of the available settings:
•
Automatically select — Avid Performance Meter selects a
protocol automatically for testing the selected path.
Generally, the utility selects AECIFS (if it is supported) or
Win32 File API (if AECIFS is not supported) for the
specified path.
•
Win32 File API — Avid Performance Meter uses the
Win32 File API for its data file access, even if AECIFS is
supported.
•
AECIFS — Avid Performance Meter uses the AECIFS
interface for its data file access. If AECIFS is not
supported, the utility does not automatically perform file
I/O using the Win32 File API. Instead, the test shows one
or more errors in the Errors portion of the Results area.
Reads vs Writes Avid Performance Meter supports testing that focuses on
Reads or Writes, or that alternates between Reads and Writes.
Select a testing mode:
•
Writes Only — The utility writes test data files and
measures the throughput obtained during Write operations.
•
Reads Only — The utility reads test data files and
measures the throughput obtained during Read operations.
n
•
One or more test data files are written as sample data
for testing; however, the Writes required to set up the
test are not included in the throughput measurements.
Reads and Writes — The utility alternates between Read
and Write tests. Approximately half of the test duration is
allocated to reading, and the other half is allocated to
writing.
39
Appendix A Avid Performance Meter
Parameter
Description
Transfer Size
(KB)
This option controls the amount of data the test utility attempts
to read or write during a single I/O.
Transfer Rate
(KB/S)
The utility can attempt to perform I/O at a variety of fixed
transfer rates. This is useful for simulating the behavior of
applications that have a known data rate.
A special unlimited transfer rate setting is also available.
When you select the unlimited transfer rate, Avid Performance
Meter performs I/O operations as fast as possible while being
affected by all aspects of the total system being exercised.
Max File Size
(MB)
This option controls the maximum size of test data files
created for Reads or Writes. This option might affect
throughput measurements. For example, at any given data rate,
a smaller file is opened and closed more often than a larger
file, creating more overhead.
This option changes the way that the Path to Test parameter is
Use named
common file for used, and the option is intended for advanced users only. When
you select this option, the Path to Test parameter must specify
Reads
a full path, including a file name. The test utility uses the
named file for its Read tests.
The utility creates the file if it does not exist and deletes it at
the end of testing. For this reason, the named file should not
already exist unless you want it to be deleted when the test is
completed. With this option selected, you can run Avid
Performance Meter on multiple clients simultaneously and
supply the same file name.
This allows Avid Performance Meter applications running on
multiple clients to read a common file. (The file is created as
needed, and the last Avid Performance Meter application to
stop deletes the file.)

Starting and Stopping the Test
Starting and Stopping the Test
You start and stop the currently configured test using the Start and Stop
buttons.
To start the currently configured test:
t
Click Start in the Avid Performance Meter main window.
The test runs for the specified duration and then stops automatically.
The elapsed time a test has been running and the remaining time are
displayed in the Control area. If you selected the Loop option in the
Avid Performance Meter Settings dialog box, the test runs indefinitely.
In this case, the word LOOP appears in the Time Remaining display in
the main window.
To stop the currently running test:
t
Click Stop in the Avid Performance Meter main window.
Interpreting the Test Results
This section provides information to help you interpret test results
displayed in the Avid Performance Meter main window.
Average Rate Calculation
The average data rate is calculated over the duration of the test. This
calculation includes the time the utility requires to open and to close the
test files, so the test file size (which you can configure for custom tests) can
affect the overall measured throughput.
Also, if the throughput is slow as the test is starting, this might be reflected
in the average rate. For example, if the target bandwidth is 4.0 MB/s, the
actual average rate calculated at the conclusion of the test might be 3.98 or
3.99 MB/s.
41
Appendix A Avid Performance Meter
Performance Graph
The graph of results over time can help experienced users obtain
information about system performance.
The following are a few items to look for:
•
Trends — Does the system perform at a consistent rate over time? Is
there an upward or downward trend in performance measured over
time? If you notice a trend, it might be helpful to perform testing over a
longer period of time to determine if the trend continues over longer
durations or if a recurring pattern emerges.
•
Patterns — Is there a momentary drop in performance that occurs at
consistent or varied intervals? Patterns can emerge as a result of
implementation details and the configuration of a particular system
(for example, caching strategies or physical memory), or they might
indicate a load on a system that is occurring periodically.
•
Changes in performance as load varies — What occurs when a
subsystem is placed under a load by other users (or Avid Performance
Meter is running on another client)? It might be easier to observe these
interactions by inspecting the plot of performance results over time.
Measurement Strategy
Throughput measurements are plotted periodically (every n seconds) and
represent a snapshot of performance at the time of the plot. This is done to
limit the amount of data that is plotted, which otherwise could include a
very large number of data points. As a result, the performance graph could
miss a momentary drop or increase or a peak in performance that occurs
between plot points. The average rate calculation reflects the impact of
such a dip or spike, even if the actual size of a momentary variation does
not appear in the graph.
