What is Cisco IP SLA?
People also ask, what is IP SLA used for?
Cisco IP SLAs is a part of Cisco IOS software that allows Cisco customers to analyze IP service levels for IP applications and services by using active traffic monitoring—the generation of traffic in a continuous, reliable, and predictable manner—for measuring network performance.
Subsequently, question is, what is RTT in IP SLA? By measuring the Round Trip Time(RTT), we can ensure WAN link both. An RTT, is the time required for a packet to travel from a specific source to a specific destination and back again. The ICMP echo operation pings the source IP SLA device and the destination IP device to measure the response time between them.
Also to know is, what is IP SLA responder?
The IP SLAs responder is a component embedded in the destination Cisco device that allows the system to anticipate and respond to IP SLAs request packets. The responder provides accurate measurements without the need for dedicated probes.
Is IP SLA Cisco proprietary?
A. The Cisco IOS IP SLAs control protocol is a proprietary protocol for initial exchange between the Cisco IOS IP SLA source and the responder.
