08-031r0 is now posted on http://www.t10.org/new.htm, compiling results from
running StatEye v5.071210 on the T10 channel models (HP01-14, 24-28, and 0.5,
1, 3, 6, 10 m Mini SAS cables).  The .pdf file is just an overview; the .zip
file includes an Excel spreadsheet with the detailed results.
The .zip file also includes two python files to replace testcase.py that can
spawn simulations with all possible combinations of selected parameters
(e.g., .s4p filename, DFE taps, deemphasis values, 8b10b coding/random data,
baud rate).  The outer layer program (metatest) sends the parameters to the
inner layer program  (test-sub) by command-line arguments.
StatEye is available on
To run StatEye, you need to first install the python interpreter and the
support modules listed on

that means you should download and install these files:
