Running the test

Before you run the test, complete the test setup as described in Bluetooth Controller Testing Prerequisites.

  • This test requires two test computers (one acts as Primary, the other Secondary).

Tests are copied locally to the WTTJobsWorking directory and logs are copied to the default Logs server for WTT.

Enabling collection of Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) traces assists with diagnosing test failures.

These traces capture the HCI traffic sent to and from the Bluetooth stack. They can be decoded using Netmon and the Bluetooth ETW parsers. It is recommended to first investigate the issue internally using these traces or some other method of capturing over-the-air traces because many controller/stack inter-operability issues can be observed in these traces.

You can view the collected logs using Netmon and the Bluetooth NPL parsers. These parsers can be obtained through installing the WDK.


For troubleshooting information, see Troubleshooting Bus Controller Testing.
