Addendum: Accessing Traffic Charts
Viewing Traffic on a Link
There are many ways to access traffic charts. To view the traffic on a particular link, you can right-click on the link in the Map window and choose an option from the Traffic Load submenu.
For MPLS-enabled networks, there is a very similar Tunnel Traffic menu in Layer 2. The descriptions are identical to those of Demand Traffic; simply replace “Demand” with “Tunnel” in the table below.
Demand Traffic on Link
Brings up chart of Demand Traffic load on this link (takes into account all demands routed on this link)
Demand Traffic Load by CoS (Router only)
Brings up Demand Traffic load chart that partitions the traffic by Class of Service (CoS) for viewing.
Demand Traffic Load/BW Ratio
Brings up the Load/BW Ratio Charts that shows Demand Traffic load over Link BW.
Measured Interface Traffic
Brings up Interface Traffic Load chart for this link.
Interface vs Demand
Brings up chart that compares Interface and Demand Traffic loads on this link.
Alternatively, you can open the Links window by selecting Network > Elements > Links. Right-click a given link. From the popup menu you can then select Traffic Chart > Measured Interface Traffic or Demand Traffic Load by CoS if you have a router network. Otherwise, you can select the Demand Traffic on Link chart.
Viewing Traffic on a Demand
To view the traffic on a demand, select Network > Elements > Demands. Select the Demands you wish to view. Right-click and select either Show Traffic Load or End to End Delay.
Show Traffic Load for Single Demand
Shows the traffic load chart for the selected demand in the Demands window.
Show Traffic Load for All Demands
Shows the sum of the traffic load for all demands for each period.
E2E Delay for Single Demand
Shows the computed end-to-end delay for the selected demand in the Demands window.
E2E Delay for All Demands
Shows the average end-to-end delay for all demands for each period.
