Creating SD-WAN Tenant Performance Report Definitions

 

Use the SD-WAN Report Definitions page to create SD-WAN tenant performance report definitions for all sites in a tenant and generate reports based on the definitions. SD-WAN tenant performance reports enable you to analyze tenant performance based on the following parameters that measure the SLA performance across all sites in a tenant:

  • Top applications by bandwidth

  • Top sites not meeting SLA

  • Top sites meeting SLA with switching

  • Sites meeting SLA without switching

  • Top sites by current active tunnels

  • Top sites by highest packet loss

  • Top sites by highest latency

  • Top sites by highest jitter

Note

Only users with the Tenant Administrator role can create SD-WAN tenant performance report definitions.

To create an SD-WAN tenant performance report definition:

  1. Select Reports > Report Definitions > SD-WAN.

    The SD-WAN Report Definitions page appears.

  2. Click Add > Tenant Performance .

    The Add SD-WAN Tenant Performance Report Definition page appears.

  3. Complete the configuration according to the guidelines provided in Table 1.Note

    Fields marked with * are mandatory.

  4. Click OK to save the report definition.

    The report definition is saved and the SD-WAN Report Definitions page appears.

    A confirmation message appears on top of this page, indicating that the report definition is successfully created.

  • Top Applications By Bandwidth—Displays a report on top applications by bandwidth.

  • Top Sites Not Meeting SLA—Displays a report on top sites not meeting the SLA performance.

  • Top Sites Meeting SLA with Switching—Displays a report on top sites meeting SLA performance with link switching.

  • Sites Meeting SLA without Switching—Displays report on sites meeting SLA performance without switching.

  • Current Active Tunnels—Displays a report on top 10 sites that have the maximum number of active dynamic mesh tunnels.

  • Top Sites by Highest Packet Loss—Displays a report on top 10 sites based on the highest cumulative average packet loss across all the links.

  • Top Sites by Highest Latency—Displays report on top 10 sites based on the highest cumulative average latency across all the links.

  • Total Sites by Highest Jitter—Displays report on top 10 sites based on the highest cumulative average jitter across all the links.

For more information about SLA parameters and dynamic mesh tunnels, see SLA Profiles and SD-WAN Policies Overview and Dynamic Mesh Tunnels Overview.
