Network Files

 

Interface Traffic (Ingress or Egress)



To use IP/MPLSView interface files as the trending input, select Traffic > Trending > Network Files > Interface Traffic (Ingress) or Interface Traffic (Egress). These files list period-by-period ingress or egress traffic per interface.

In order to use these files, they must first have been loaded into your network project. To do so, select File > Load Network Files, select the Traffic tab, and press the ingress or egress buttons, respectively. Typically a user only specify one of these.

The file format is as follows:

An alternative file format for interface traffic is:

The units for the period data should be in bits per second.

Note

The NodeID must match the ID or name of one of the nodes in the muxloc file.



Trafficload (Demand, NCP, ...)



To use IP/MPLSView trafficload files as the trending input, select Traffic > Trending > Network Files > Demand Trafficload. These files list period-by-period traffic per demand.

In order to use these files, they must first have been loaded into your network project. To do so, select File > Load Network Files, Traffic tab, and press the “trafficload” button.

The file format is as follows:



Tunnel Trafficload (IP/MPLS only)



To use IP/MPLSView tunnel trafficload files as the trending input, select Traffic > Trending > Network Files > Tunnel Trafficload. These files list period-by-period traffic per LSP tunnel.

In order to use these files, they must first have been loaded into your network project. To do so, select File > Load Network Files, Device Specific tab, and press the trafficload button.

The file format is as follows:



Peak Link Traffic



To use peak link traffic load files as the trending input, run an exhaustive single element failure from Simulation > Predefined Scenarios on a network with a trafficload file, which contains the period-by-period traffic per demand. For example, the sample fish network (/u/wandl/sample/IP/fish/spec.mpls-fish) could be used to generate a peak link traffic load since the specification file references a trafficload file with the period-by-period traffic per demand. After the failure simulation is complete, a file named PeakLinkLoad.< runcode> is created, which indicates for a particular link and a particular period, what was the worst link load experienced for that link, taking into consideration all of the single element failure simulations that were simulated on the network.

The file format is as follows:

Load the file using Traffic > Trending > Network Files > Peak Link Traffic.
