About the SLA-Based Steering Profiles Page

 

To access this page, select Configuration > SLA-Based Steering Profiles in the Administration Portal.

In an SLA-based steering profile, each profile is associated with a traffic type profile and tracks the SLA parameters such as packet loss, Jitter and RTT. The traffic type profile must be in enabled state in order to be used in any profile. Based on your requirements, you can choose the recommended SLA threshold or enter custom SLA threshold for the traffic type profile. You can even set the path preference (Any, MPLS, or Internet) to switch traffic from one WAN interface to another based on the path failover criteria.

You can use the SLA-Based Steering Profiles page to view information about service-level agreement (SLA)-based steering profiles for all tenants.

Tasks You Can Perform

You can perform the following tasks from this page:

  • View details of SLA-based steering profiles for all tenants.

  • Add an SLA-based steering profile for all tenants. See Adding SLA-Based Steering Profiles.

  • Edit or delete an SLA-based steering profile. See Editing and Deleting SLA-Based Steering Profiles.

  • Show or hide columns that contain information about SLA-based steering profiles—Click the Show Hide columns icon in the top right corner of the page and select columns that you want to view on the page.

  • Search for SLA-based steering profiles using keywords. Click the search icon. Enter partial text or full text of the keyword in the search bar and press Enter. The search results are displayed.

SLA Probe Match

Indicates whether the profile requires the SLA probe to match all SLA criteria (All) or not (Any) .

Detail for SLA-Profile-Name pane

Created By

Name of the user who created the SLA-based steering profile.

SLA-Based Steering Profiles page (SLA Profiles List tab)

Path Preference

The preferred path for the SLA profile. The available options are:

  • MPLS

  • Internet

  • Any (default)

Detail for SLA-Profile-Name pane

Session-sampling %

Indicates the matching percentage of sessions for which you want to run the passive probes.

Detail for SLA-Profile-Name pane

SLA Violation Counts

Indicates the number of SLA violations after which you want CSO to switch paths.

Detail for SLA-Profile-Name pane

Sampling Period

The sampling period, in milliseconds, for which the SLA violations are counted.

Detail for SLA-Profile-Name pane

Switch Cool-off Period

The waiting period, in milliseconds, only after which you want the link switch to happen if an active link comes back online. This parameter helps prevent frequent switching of traffic between active and backup links.

Detail for SLA-Profile-Name pane

Path Failover Criteria

Indicates the path failover criteria for link switching. Path failover occurs when any (Any)of the SLA parameters is violated or when all (All) the SLA parameters are violated.

Detail for SLA-Profile-Name pane

Maximum Upstream Rate

The maximum upstream rate (in Kbps) for all applications associated with the SLA-based steering profile.

Detail for SLA-Profile-Name pane

Maximum Upstream Burst Size

The maximum upstream burst size (in bytes).

Detail for SLA-Profile-Name pane

Maximum Downstream Rate

The maximum downstream rate (in Kbps) for all applications associated with the SLA-based-steering profile.

Detail for SLA-Profile-Name pane

Maximum Downstream Burst Size
