SD-WAN License Details Test

Using this test, administrators can easily figure out whether the target appliance is currently licensed or not and the maximum bandwidth that the appliance can use for the subscribed license. Moreover, this test also tracks the license usage of the target appliance, and determines when the license is likely to expire.

Target of the test : A Citrix SD-WAN

Agent deploying the test : A remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the Citrix SD-WAN appliance that is being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed. By default, this is set to 5 minutes.

Host

The IP address of the target SD-WAN appliance for which this test is to be configured.

Port

Refers to the port at which the target SD-WAN listens to. By default, this will be NULL.

Timeout

Specify the time duration (in seconds) beyond which this test should time out in the Timeout text box. The default is 10 seconds.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise suite embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Has license expired?

Indicates whether the target appliance is licensed or not.

 

The numeric values that correspond to each of the above-mentioned values are as follows:

Measure Value Numeric Value
Licensed 0
Unlicensed 1

Note:

By default, this measure reports one of the Measure Values listed in the table above to indicate whether the appliance is licensed or not. The graph of this measure however, represents the same using the numeric equivalents alone.

Maximum bandwidth supported

Indicates the maximum bandwidth that the appliance can support.

Mbps

 

Days to expire

Indicates the number of days within which the appliance's license will expire.

Number

If this value is very low, it implies that license will expire very soon. To continue using the appliance, administrators will have to renew the license.
