Debugging and Testing a Gateway (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


The following information can be useful when debugging and testing a Gateway that uses Windows Embedded CE. (For general information about testing and debugging, see Strategies for Debugging a Run-Time Image, Tools for Debugging and Testing, and Debugging Reference.)

  • The Windows Embedded CE 6.0 Test Kit (CETK) (CETK) includes a set of tests that you can use to test and validate some of the Gateway functionality. In particular, you can use the Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) performance test to assess the lower-level send and receive throughput of a network interface on your Gateway device. For more information about the NDIS test, see NDIS Performance Test. For general CETK information, see Windows CE Test Kit.
  • You can improve, or optimize, the NDIS miniport driver of your Gateway so that it sends and receives network packets in a more efficient manner. For more information, see Improving Performance of an NDIS Miniport Driver.
  • You can use the Winsock Performance Test to measure send and receive throughput, packet loss, and round-trip time at the Winsock level. For more information, see Testing a Gateway by Using the Winsock Performance Test.

  • For a list of best practices on how to increase the performance of your Gateway device, see Gateway Best Practices.
