View Network Performance with vAnalytics Platform

vAnalytics platform provides graphical representations of the performance of your entire Viptela overlay network over time, and lets you drill down to the characteristics of a single carrier, tunnel, or application at a particular time.

The vAnalytics dashboard serves as an interactive overview of your network and an entrance point for more details. The dashboard displays information for the last 24 hours. When you drill down, you can select different time periods for which to display data.

vAnalytics platform displays application performance with the Viptela Quality of Experience (vQoE) value. This value ranges from zero to ten, with zero being the worst performance and ten being the best. vAnalytics platform calculates vQoE based on latency, loss, and jitter, customizing the calculation for each application.

You can access information in vAnalytics platform in three main ways:

  • Click screen elements to display additional charts or graphs.
  • Hover over screen elements to open hover boxes with additional details.
  • Download PDF files to use in reports or other documentation.

Enable vAnalytics Platform

  1. In vManage NMS, select Administration ► Settings.
  2. In the vAnalytics bar, click Edit.
  3. Select Enabled, then enter your SSO username and password provided by Viptela. For assistance with your username and password, contact Viptela Support at viptela.com/support, or by email at support@viptela.com.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Ensure that the vManage server is able to reach a DNS server so that the vManage server canresolve the public domain address for the vAnalytics cluster, which is located in the cloud. In vManage NMS, select the Configure ► Templates screen, and in the vManage template for VPN 0, select the DNS tab and configure the address of a primary DNS server and, optionally, a secondary DNS server. From the CLI, use the vpn 0 dns configuration command.

Open vAnalytics Platform

In vManage NMS, click vAnalytics in the menu. The vAnalytics dashboard opens in a new tab.

View Network Availability

The Network Availability pane displays a summary of downtime by vEdge router and by circuit.

  • Click the vEdge section for details about downtime at individual sites.
  • Click the Circuit section for information about downtime on different circuits.

You can also access this information by selecting Network Availability in the vAnalytics menu.

View Carrier Performance

The Carrier Performance box displays a geographical map with circles representing the carriers in your overlay network.

  • Select Latency, Loss, or Jitter to change the data displayed.
  • Click a carrier's circle for more information about that carrier's performance.

You can also access this information by selecting Network Health ► Carrier in the vAnalytics menu.

View Tunnel Performance

The Tunnel Performance box displays a graph of tunnel performance, with one line representing each tunnel in your overlay network.

  • Select Latency, Loss, or Jitter to change the data displayed.
  • Click a point on any line for more information about the tunnel's performance at that point in time.

You can also access this information by selecting Network Health ► Tunnel in the vAnalytics menu.

View Application Performance

The Application Performance pane displays least performing applications, applications consuming the most bandwidth, and anomalous behavior by application family.

The Least Performing Applications box displays applications with the lowest performance. Select vQoE, latency, loss, or jitter to change the data displayed. Click an application for more information about that application's performance.

The Applications Consuming Most Bandwidth box displays circles of different sizes representing each application. Larger circles show applications that consume more bandwidth than smaller circles. Click a circle for information about the bandwidth utilization of that application.

The Anomalous Application Families box displays application families experiencing performance that deviates from their baseline. Click an application family for more information about its anomalies.

You can also access this information by selecting Applications in the vAnalytics menu.

Release Information

Introduced in vManage NMS in Release 16.3.
