IP SLA UDP Jitter configuration

Hi, I have to configure/use IP SLA via CLI on the Cisco routers.  The customer would like me to measure 3 elements:-

1. The average time taken when 2 test packets of 64bytes are sent every minute, 24 hours a day with a limit of 20milliseconds

2.  The percentage of all data packets successfully delivered

3. The percentage of all data packets successfully delivered with Jitter recorded at less than or = to 5milliseconds.

4. Measure MOS - in all cases MOS should not fall below 3.7




Config for Measurement 1 and 3 and maybe 2.


oc-boieb-test-dmd-eu#sh run | begin ip sla
ip sla 1
udp-jitter 10.80.102.129 5000 source-ip 10.80.102.32 source-port 5000 num-packets 2 interval 30000

So, I was going to use UDP Jitter for measurement 1,2 and 3 - are the parameters above correct?

But I'm unsure how to measure 2 and 4 above plus I am also not sure how to read the output I get when I run the ip sla statistics for

Measurement1 and 3 above.


Any help is appreciated?


Regards


Mary

I would probably go with something like:


ip sla 1
udp-jitter 10.80.102.129 5000 source-ip 10.80.102.32 source-port 5000 codec g711ulaw codec-numpackets 2 codec-interval 30000 codec-size 64
timeout 20
threshold 5


This way, you separate your timeout from your threshold.  Any probe which has latency higher than 20 ms will be an error, while any higher than 5 will show up as being over threshold.  Therefore, 2 and 3 should be easy to see (2 is simply the number of successes divided by the number of attempts times 100).


The MOS score is seen in the output of "show ip sla stats 1" while "show ip sla stats agg 1" will show you the min and max MOS.

Hi Mary,

Hopefully I can get some inputs from you since it is old thread but I am doing the similar config.

Do you have any idea why I am getting many zero readings for per-direction jitter? I synchronized all the involved routers to the same timing source. 

Thanks,

Bo
