Custom Reports for DMM

STB Suite | The Industry Standard in Peripheral Testing.

A powerful new feature in the STB Suite version 8.7 is user customizable reports for DMM. This new feature lets you include any information in the DMM log files.

Per Test-Step information

You can define any information you want printed for each test step by clicking the Advanced Options button and filling in your text in the new Special Text to Log for this Test field. This field is found near the bottom of the Advanced Options page –

As an example we will create a test sequence to run a DoD5220 disk purge operation. As you see in the example above we have defined the text“DoD5220-write pass 1” for the first test step. We will define each of the remaining test steps in the same format.

 

By clicking on the View Test Sequence Details button you can see what special text is defined for each test step –

 

Overall Test information

You can define two new pieces of information for the overall test at runtime, an Operator ID and a general text information. This information can be entered in the Test Loop Count dialog which appears when you click the Start Test button –

 

Log file output

Here is an example of the DMM log file output from running our DoD purge sequence with the new text options highlighted –
