Network Traffic - IGEL Test

This test monitors the incoming and outgoing traffic through each IGEL Endpoint.

Target of the test : An IGEL Endpoint

Agent deploying the test : A remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every IGEL Endpoint:network interface combination

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.

Host

The nick name of the IGEL Endpoints component for which this test is to be configured.

Port

Refers to the port at which the specified host listens to. By default, this is NULL.

Inside View Using

To obtain the 'inside view' of performance of the IGEL Endpoints - i.e., to measure the internal performance of the IGEL Endpoints - this test uses a light-weight Endpoint Agent software deployed on each of the IGEL Endpoints. The Endpoint Agents collect performance metrics from the IGEL Endpoints and communicate the metrics to the eG remote agent using TCP protocol. Accordingly, by default, this parameter is set to TCP.

Report By User

Since this test runs for an 'IGEL Endpoints' component, this flag is set to Yes by default.

Report Powered OS

Since this test runs for an 'IGEL Endpoints' component, this flag is set to Yes by default.

Is Cloud VMs

Since this test runs for an 'IGEL Endpoints' component, this flag is set to Yes by default.

Measurements made by the test

Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Incoming network traffic

Indicates the rate at which data (including framing characters) is received on a network interface.

Mbps

An abnormally high rate of incoming traffic may require additional analysis.

Outgoing network traffic

Represents the rate at which data (including framing characters) is sent on a network interface.

Mbps

An abnormally high rate of outgoing traffic may require additional analysis.
