Thank you for joining us to learn more about SilverCreek, the authoritative SNMP test suite.

Today we will explore the easiest way to save test results with SilverCreek, and that's the quick-save results button.

This is part 1 of our three-part series on saving test results.

SilverCreek is testing an SNMPv3 agent as an MD5 user.

We are going to run the tests suite for RFC 3412 against the device under test.

We've started the test suite. Each line is a specific test and the status of that test is displayed in the top right panel.

The green PASSED messages indicate the agent responded correctly to the test.

The red FAILED message indicates the agent did not respond correctly.

The bottom panel explains the reasons for the failure.

We want to save this information for further analysis.

One of the advantages of quick-save results is that we can make the decision to save information after a test is run.

We select “Save Results after Running Tests” for the “Currently Selected Suite”

Notice that we have several options here. The default is to save all the result data, passed, failed, and descriptions.

For the output format, we're selecting the XML format.

Here is our result report in XML.

This is useful for presenting a high-level overview of the results of each test in the test suite.

With XML output, many tools are available for further processing and presentation of these data.

Alternatively, we could select text as the output format, and the results would look like this.

Since we know that just one test failed, let's see if we can uncheck “Passed Tests” and take a look at just the failures.

Now if we look at the results, we get more information about how the agent failed.

This information should be provided to the developers to help them pinpoint the bug in the agent that is causing the failure.

“Save results” lets us make a decision about saving a particular set of test results after the tests are run.

Save results is useful for quickly capturing results data.
