As your company's network and applications becomes increasingly more complex, network performance becomes mission critical. New applications such as VoIP, video, and enterprise applications introduce potential network bottlenecks that must be isolated and corrected. IxChariot is the industry's leading network assessment tool allowing you to troubleshoot your networks and applications and get your company's network back on track.

Discovery Server and Test Factory
Ixia's new Test Factory and Discovery Server bring management of large-scale IxChariot endpoint deployments to today's enterprise network environment.
A part of the IxChariot product family, IxProfile is a dedicated application that imports captured data traffic, analyzes it and then creates traffic generation scripts and streams for replay across any wired and wireless network.
QCheck, the free network troubleshooting utility from Ixia, measures network response time, throughput, and streaming performance. It even runs an "anywhere-to-anywhere" traceroute!
Proxy Endpoint SDK
IxChariot Proxy Endpoint is a software development kit (SDK) that enables the creation of custom endpoints for IxChariot.
IxChariot Runtime is a cost-effective version of IxChariot for the unique needs of field service, technical marketing and manufacturing groups. The runtime licenses provide more consoles for smaller tests (i.e. fewer performance pairs). Runtime licenses can be given to field engineers, who only need to run simple tests.
IxChariot has a programmable API which offers flexibility to build customized tests. Automated test cases help to reduce your test cycle times. The API also enables developers and integrators to build wrapper applications or link IxChariot to other reporting tools. The IxChariot API uses Tcl (Test Command Language).

In addition, an IxChariot plug-in is now available for Test Conductor , the industry's leading multi-vendor automation framework. Adding Test Conductor to your environment accelerates your time to test significantly, allowing you to integrate device or network configuration scripts with your IxChariot traffic scripts for maximum repeatability. Test runs can be scheduled to run at specific times, with specific pass/fail criteria, making it easy to report on network health or network upgrade progress.
