vAnalytics Dashboard

Use the vAnalytics dashboard screen to monitor the performance of the entire Viptela overlay network over time.

Top Bar

The top bar is located at the top of every vAnalytics screen and includes the following screen elements:

  • vAnalytics product name.
  • Sidebar menu icon for collapsing and expanding the vAnalytics menu. The vAnalytics menu is closed by default.
  • Help—Links to product help and software version information about the vAnalytics platform.
  • vAnalytics username—Username for the vAnalytics platform that you are logged into. Includes the sign-out button.

Network Availability Pane

The Network Availability pane displays network-wide availability for the last 24 hours by device and circuit. Each box displays uptime as a percentage and total downtime in minutes.

Click in the Device box to display downtime for each vEdge router in the overlay network. Click in the Circuit box to display downtime for each circuit in the overlay network.

  • Click the Filter icon to select a specific vEdge router or circuit to view.
  • Click the PDF icon to open a PDF version of the chart in a new tab.
  • Click any bar to display the time period when that device or circuit was down.

Applications Pane

The Applications Pane displays application performance for the last 24 hours in three views: Least Performing Applications, Applications Consuming Most Bandwidth, and Anomalous Application Families.

Least Performing Applications

The Least Performing Applications box displays the applications in the network with the lowest performance.

vAnalytics platform calculates application performance with the Viptela Quality of Experience (vQoE) value. This value ranges from zero to 10, with zero being the worst performance and 10 being the best. vQoE combines scores for latency, loss, and jitter, customizing the calculation for the needs of each application.

  • Select vQoE, Latency, Loss, or Jitter to change the data displayed.
  • Click the Sort icon to toggle between Least Performing Applications and Top Performing Applications.
  • Click the PDF icon to open a PDF version of the chart in a new tab.
  • Hover over a bar in the graph to open a hover box with details about that application.
  • Click a bar in the graph to display that application's performance on each tunnel. Click a tunnel to display the application's hourly performance on that tunnel.

Applications Consuming Most Bandwidth

The Applications Consuming Most Bandwidth box displays applications consuming the most bandwidth in the network.

Each circle represents an application; the larger the circle, the greater is the bandwidth that it consumes. The legend to the right indicates the color of each application family. The graph displays the top ten applications using the most bandwidth, and an additional circle called Others. Click Others for details about any remaining applications.

  • Click the PDF icon to open a PDF version of the graph in a new tab.
  • Hover over a circle in the graph to open a hover box with details about that application.
  • Click a circle in the graph to display that application's bandwidth consumption over time. Click a point on the graph to display sites using that application. Click a site to display flows for that site.
  • To highlight specific application families:
    1. Click a family in the legend to select it. To select more than one family, hold down the Shift key.
    2. Click the Highlight icon that appears. The selected carriers are highlighted on the map.
    3. To display all families again, click the Highlight icon.

Anomalous Application Families

The Anomalous Application Families box displays application families using more bandwidth than their baseline.

  • Click the PDF icon to open a PDF version of the chart in a new tab.
  • Hover over a bar in the graph to display a hover box with details about that application family.
  • Click a bar in the graph to display that family's average octets by site. Click a bar in the graph to display that site's octets over time for that family. Click a bar in the timeline to display octets at that point in time for each application in the family.

WAN Performance Pane

The WAN Performance pane displays performance of carriers and tunnels for the last 24 hours by latency, loss, or jitter.

Carrier Performance

The Carrier Performance box displays application performance by carrier on a geographical map of the overlay network.

Circles on the map represent each carrier. The legend to the right indicates the color of each carrier.

  • Select Latency, Loss, or Jitter to change the data displayed.
  • Click the PDF icon to open a PDF version of the map in a new tab.
  • Hover over a carrier's circle to display a hover box with details for that location.
  • Click a circle on the map to display that location's performance for the last 24 hours in graphical format. Hover over a point on the graph for details about that point in time.
  • Hover over the map to display map functions:
    • Click Search to search for a geographical location by name.
    • Click the + (plus) or – (minus) zoom icons to zoom in or out.
    • Click Home to return to the world-wide view.
    • Hover over the right arrow for other map functions, such as selecting a zoom area and panning.
  • To highlight specific carriers:
    1. Click a carrier in the legend to select it. To select more than one carrier, hold down the Shift key.
    2. Click the Highlight icon that appears. The selected carriers are highlighted on the map.
    3. To display all carriers again, click the Highlight icon.

Tunnel Performance

The Tunnel Performance box displays the performance of tunnels for the last 24 hours by latency, loss, or jitter. The legend to the right indicates the color of each tunnel.

  • Select Latency, Loss, or Jitter to change the data displayed.
  • Click the PDF icon to open a PDF version of the chart in a new tab.
  • Hover over a point on the graph to display a hover box with details about that point in time.
  • To highlight specific tunnels:
    1. Click a tunnel in the legend to select it. To select more than one tunnel, hold down the Shift key.
    2. Click the Highlight icon that appears. The selected tunnels are highlighted on the graph.
    3. To display all tunnels again, click the Highlight icon.
