Does anybody know a good software that can do TIA-568-B test?


One of my clients is having some networking issues went is using their company relational database, apart for that everythings seems to work fine, i'm thinking that maybe the problem is with the LAN copper cable, does anyone know of a good software that allow me to do some of the TIA-568-B copper cable certification tests?

The next link describe the tests:

Thanks in advance.

what type of client/server database does your client run?
Can you describe what type of network issues your client is experiencing?
What do you mean by "apart from that everything else seems to work fine"

Those particular tests require a dedicated cable tester. There are some network monitoring tools like nagios, traceroute, netstat, iptraf, tcpdump, strace and ping are some that come to mind that might provide a clue.

Thanks for the quick reply.

The client runs a Delphi custom made software with a embedded database solution (dbisam 4.3), it use that program on windows workstations, the program is an ERP used for administrative issues.

I'm not much of a database guru but a think it is a relational database, i found the link of the database developer http://www.elevatesoft.com/

You can do Querys on the database, but it give an error for delayed writing every time the system need to make a receive (went there's a sale), after that the database is corrupted and needs to be fixed, after you fix the tables you can see that the program did store the sale.

This happens in all 5 machines so i don't think is hardware related.

I mean that all station can share files, surf the web and run other applications without problems.

I can ping all stations, and traceroute, I haven't use anything else, but since the client is a bit far in the country and i don't have certification equipment I wondered if there was a way I can check the cables with my laptop.

Has anyone looked at the server to make sure it does not have any hardware problems?
