IP SLA RTT values - UDPEcho Vs. UDPJitter

Hi,

I setup the following:

R1----R2----R3

R1 configured as source/responder to R3.

R3 configured as source/responder to R1.

R1 configured just to route traffic.

R1 configured with the following:

ip sla monitor 1

type udpEcho dest-ipaddr 192.168.20.1 dest-port 5000

request-data-size 160

ip sla monitor schedule 1 life forever start-time now

ip sla monitor 2

type jitter dest-ipaddr 192.168.20.1 dest-port 5000 num-packets 20 interval 10

request-data-size 160

ip sla monitor schedule 2 life forever start-time now

R3 configured pretty much the same, only in reverse direction:

ip sla monitor responder

ip sla monitor 1

type udpEcho dest-ipaddr 192.168.10.1 dest-port 5000

request-data-size 160

ip sla monitor schedule 1 life forever start-time now

ip sla monitor 2

type jitter dest-ipaddr 192.168.10.1 dest-port 5000 num-packets 20 interval 10

request-data-size 160

ip sla monitor schedule 2 life forever start-time now

Looking at results on R1 for UDPEcho(1) and UDPJitter(2) operations:

BELFAST_SLA#sh ip sla monitor statistics 1

Round trip time (RTT) Index 1

Latest RTT: 166 ms

BELFAST_SLA#sh ip sla monitor statistics 2

Round trip time (RTT) Index 2

Latest RTT: 864 ms

The RTT values for UDPEcho and UDPJitter dont change significantly over time.

Why is there such a difference in the two values?

Thanks,

Mark

Re: IP SLA RTT values - UDPEcho Vs. UDPJitter

UDP Jitter measures round-trip delay, one-way delay, one-way jitter, one-way packet loss, and connectivity testing of networks that carry UDP traffic, such as voice. And

UDP Echo measures round-trip delay of UDP traffic.
