Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Total memory

Indicates the total amount of memory allotted for the router.


Used memory

Indicates the amount of memory utilized by the router.


A low value is desired for this measure.

Free memory

Indicates the amount of memory that is available for use by the router.


A high value is desired for this measure.

Used memory utilization

Indicates the percentage of memory that was utilized by the router.


A utilization value close to 100% is indicative of a memory bottleneck at the router.
