NAME

       dahdi_test — Test if the DAHDI timer provides timely response

SYNOPSIS

       dahdi_test [ -v ]

DESCRIPTION

       dahdi_test  dahdi_test  runs  a  timing  test  in a loop and prints the
       result of each loop.  The test is as follows:

       It reads 8192 bytes from the DAHDI  timer  device  (/dev/dahdi/pseudo).
       This  should  take  exactly  8000 ms . It uses calls to gettimeofday(2)
       before and after that read to check that  indeed  exactly  8000ms  have
       passed.

       Values  of  100%  and  99.99%  Are normally considered a definite pass.
       Values of 99.98% and 99.97% are probably OK as well.

OPTIONS

       -v
              Be more verbose: print one line per test.

       -c count
              Run for count times instead of running forever.

FILES

       /dev/dahdi/pseudo
       The device file used to access the DAHDI timer.
