The OpenThread diagnostics module is a tool for debugging platform hardware manually, and it will also be used during manufacturing process, to verify platform hardware performance.
The diagnostics module supports common diagnostics features that are listed below, and it also provides a mechanism for expanding platform specific diagnostics features.
Show diagnostics mode status.
> diag diagnostics mode is disabled
Start diagnostics mode.
> diag start start diagnostics mode status 0x00
Get the IEEE 802.15.4 Channel value for diagnostics module.
> diag channel channel: 11
Set the IEEE 802.15.4 Channel value for diagnostics module.
> diag channel 11 set channel to 11 status 0x00
Get the tx power value(dBm) for diagnostics module.
> diag power tx power: -10 dBm
Set the tx power value(dBm) for diagnostics module.
> diag power -10 set tx power to -10 dBm status 0x00
Transmit a fixed number of packets with fixed length.
> diag send 20 100 sending 0x14 packet(s), length 0x64 status 0x00
Transmit packets repeatedly with a fixed interval.
> diag repeat 100 100 sending packets of length 0x64 at the delay of 0x64 ms status 0x00
Stop repeated packet transmission.
> diag repeat stop repeated packet transmission is stopped status 0x00
Enter radio sleep mode.
> diag radio sleep set radio from receive to sleep status 0x00
Set radio from sleep mode to receive mode.
> diag radio receive set radio from sleep to receive on channel 11 status 0x00
Return the state of the radio.
> diag radio state sleep
Print statistics during diagnostics mode.
> diag stats received packets: 10 sent packets: 10 first received packet: rssi=-65, lqi=101 last received packet: rssi=-64, lqi=98
Clear statistics during diagnostics mode.
> diag stats clear stats cleared
Stop diagnostics mode and print statistics.
> diag stop received packets: 10 sent packets: 10 first received packet: rssi=-65, lqi=101 last received packet: rssi=-61, lqi=98 stop diagnostics mode status 0x00
