Cisco developed IP SLA technology as part of their IOS software, enabling you to analyze IP service levels for network-based applications and services. IP SLA technology measures the round trip time (RTT) of network services and communications between devices to give you a better measurement of your network’s true performance. Implementing IP SLA commands manually can be challenging, but SolarWinds IP SLA Monitor does the heavy lifting for you.
IP SLA Monitor enables IP SLA on Cisco routers and switches, configures the path-specific operation details, and displays the resulting real-time performance information in an easy-to-read dashboard. IP SLA Monitor’s intuitive interface allows you to easily monitor common IP SLA operations, including UDP echo, ICMP path echo (ping), TCP connect, DNS resolution, and HTTP.
Even better, you can import IP SLA monitors into Orion Network Performance Monitor to get a more complete view of your network’s health. With Orion NPM, you can track IP SLA trends, create powerful alerts, and monitor and report on the performance between devices anywhere on your network. It’s easy to automatically create and export a Universal Device Poller (UnDP) within IP SLA Monitor that can be seamlessly used in Orion NPM to do all of this and more.
