I want to set up a HTTP test in CiscoWorks IPM to google as a standard latency test to the interent, but I am not sure how to set this up as a user defined test.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

First, you need an IOS device capable of performing an IP SLA HTTP operation. I'll assume you have added one to DCR, and it's managed by IPM.

Go to IPM > Collector Mgmt > Devices. Click Add Adhoc Target. Add www.google.com.

Go to IPM > Collector Mgmt > Operations and click Create. Give your operation a name, and select HTTP as the type. Adjust your latency values to taste. Click Next.

Enter / as the relative URL. Fill in any required proxy information. Click Next then Finish.

Go to IPM > Collector Mgmt > Collectors. Create a new collector. Choose your IOS source device. Choose the ad hoc target www.google.com. Then choose your newly created HTTP operation. Give your collector a name, and click Next then Next again.

Choose the collector type (either historical or real-time), then choose when you want it to run, and the poller settings. Click Next then Finish.

Hi jclarke,

Is the source router running IOS have to be configured with SLA or is this only applied on the target IOS?

My test collector is not showing real-time stats. Does this take a few hours to generate a report?
