    Monitoring the Service Traffic Statistics of VPLS Services for Correlating Device Counters

    You can view the Service Traffic page of a specific service to examine and diagnose the transmission details of packets and the metrics on forwarded or received packets. The interface statistical counters display the number of packets and bytes sent and received from interfaces that are associated with the devices of the service. A pictorial representation of the links in a point-to-point service topology is also shown. You can also view a bar chart of the class-of-service (CoS) queue information for physical interfaces. For rate-limited interfaces hosted on Modular Interface Cards (MICs), Modular Port Concentrators (MPCs), or Enhanced Queuing DPCs, rate-limit packet-drop operations occur before packets are queued for transmission scheduling. For such interfaces, the statistics for queued traffic do not include the packets that have already been dropped due to rate limiting, and consequently the displayed statistics for queued traffic are the same as the displayed statistics for transmitted traffic.

    For rate-limited interfaces hosted on other types of hardware, rate-limit packet-drop operations occur after packets are queued for transmission scheduling. For these other interface types, the statistics for queued traffic include the packets that are later dropped due to rate limiting, and consequently the displayed statistics for queued traffic equals the sum of the statistics for transmitted and rate-limited traffic.

    Note: The values and statuses of the parameters displayed in the graphs and tables of different widgets are refreshed, based on the polling interval configured on the Monitoring tab of the Preferences page (accessible by clicking the down arrow beside the System button on the Connectivity Services Director banner and selecting Preferences).

    To view the Service Traffic page for VPLS services:

    1. Select Service View from the View Selector.
      The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunneling services are displayed on the View pane.
    2. From the Junos Space user interface, click the Monitor icon on the Connectivity Services Director banner.
      The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed on the task pane.
    3. From the Service View pane, on the left, click the plus sign (+) next to Network Services to expand the tree and display the different service types that you can configure.

      The Network Services tree is expanded and displayed on the View pane.

    4. Click the plus sign (+) beside Connectivity to view services based on protocols.

      The Connectivity tree is expanded and displayed on the View pane.

    5. Expand the VPLS Services tree to select a VPLS service.
    6. Click the ServiceTraffic tab.

      The Service Traffic page is displayed.

    The following widgets are displayed on the Service Traffic tab.

    Figure 1 shows the Service Traffic tab for a VPLS service.

    Traffic Matrix

    The Traffic Matrix monitor displays the number of packets transmitted between the peer devices. A table is shown with the row representing the source device and the columns denoting the devices or network elements in the path up to the destination device. It is applicable for VPLS services. From the Statistics Type drop-down list, select Unicast Bytes, Multicast Bytes, Broadcast Bytes, or Flooded Bytes to display metrics corresponding to the selected parameter.

    Interface Statistics

    This monitor is displayed for VPLS services. In this monitor, the interface statistics denote the traffic data on all the UNI or site interfaces associated with the service. These values are on-demand statistical values and the data is retrieved from the device directly without being cached (polling at periodic intervals and displaying a snapshot). It is supported for P2P, VPLS, and L3VPN services. The following fields are displayed in a table:

    • Device Name—Name of the device

    • Interface—Name of the interface

    • Packets In—Number of packets received on the interface

    • Packets Out—Number of packets sent from the interface

    • Bytes In—Number of bytes received on the interface

    • Bytes Out—Number of bytes sent from the interface

    From the Automatic Refresh list, select Disabled, Every 30 Seconds, Every 45 Seconds, or Every 1 Minute to specify the frequency at which the statistics in the table must be updated and displayed. When you disable the auto-refresh capability, the page is not refreshed periodically by itself; instead you can click the Refresh icon to update the table contents for viewing.

    Traffic Pattern

    This monitor is displayed for VPLS services. A chord graphic displays the relationship among a set of entities. The association in the form of chords for traffic traversing through devices on which the service is assigned is shown.
