Voice Probes Inquiry???

Hello All,

I once read something about a Cisco router or Gateway being able to send out probes to simulate voice traffic over the WAN. Then once you recieve the signals back you can analyze them to determine how those packets were treated. What was that called again and how do I go about enabling it on both routers?

Re: Voice Probes Inquiry???

There are good tools available which can simulate voice traffic,

check in link,

http://www.cisco.com/web/about/ciscoitatwork/network_systems/network_data_monitoring_and_reporting_web.html

but if you want to see real time network output where QOS has been applied,

check the show commands in,

The feature is called IP SLA.

Here is some example configuration /show commands:

Sending side:

ip sla monitor 3

type jitter dest-ipaddr 172.16.1.2 dest-port 16384 codec g711ulaw codec-numpackets 30

tos 184

frequency 10

ip sla monitor schedule 3 start-time now

ip sla monitor 4

type jitter dest-ipaddr 172.16.35.5 dest-port 16386 codec g711ulaw codec-numpackets 20

tos 184

frequency 5

ip sla monitor schedule 4 start-time now

Receiving side:

ip sla monitor responder

R3#sh ip sla moni stat
