IP SLA jitter issue

Hi all,

I config the ipsla jitter to monitor the voip traffic between german and hk. However I get the following statistic that the SD and DS are unbalance. Could anyone know what the issue is ?

IP SLA jitter issue

The different values in SD and DS can be due to asymmetric paths between source and destination. So because the SD and DS the packets may be taking a different path, the values may differ, you need to check routing to verify it.

How jitter is calulated is the Cisco IOS source router consecutively sends multiple packets to the destination at ten millisecond intervals; if the network is operating optimally, the destination should receive them at ten-millisecond intervals. Delays (ie: queueing, or arriving through alternate routes) in the network can cause inter-packet arrival delay of greater or less than ten milliseconds.

Positive jitter implies that the packets arrived at intervals of more than ten milliseconds. If they arrive twelve milliseconds apart, then positive jitter is equivalent to two milliseconds. Negative jitter is computed similarly when the interval is smaller than originally encoded.

Greater value for positive jitter is undesirable for voice networks, and a jitter value of zero is ideal for delay-sensitive networks.

Hi Vinod,

Thanks for your information. I will check with local customer for this issue.
