Cisco Medianet Reports in NetFlow Analyzer

{}

After configuring Cisco devices for
Medianet exports(as mentioned in the previous blog), the next step is
generating Medianet reports in NetFlow Analyzer. The Medianet report
in NetFlow Analyzer shows traffic IN and traffic OUT details based on
media volume, round trip time, packet loss and jitter.

The user can also generate report for
each of these metrics separately. To generate report for Medianet,
Drill down to each interface of the router in NetFlow Analyzer for
which Medianet export is configured, then you can click on Medianet
Tab to generate report based on the desired parameter.

Cisco Medianet Reports in NetFlow
Analyzer:

The Medianet Reports can be generated
for Source, Destination and Applications contributing to media
traffic in the network or at a particular interface. The reports can
be generated for following parameters individually.

  • Media Volume

  • RTT

  • Jitter Average

  • Packet Loss

Media Volume :-

The time-line graph gives quick view of
the top 3 contributors(IP address) of media traffic. The pie chart
represents the percentage of rich media traffic to other traffic in
the network.

Below the time-line graph, you can view
source/destination/application that has sent/received maximum number
of media packets and volume of media traffic in the network. It also
reports the percentage of media traffic when compared to general
traffic.


RTT:-

The graph for RTT shows the Top 3 IP
addresses with high Round-Trip-Time. You can also see the RTT value
for each Source/Destination/Application.

Jitter :-

The graph for jitter shows the
Top 3 IP addresses with transport jitter average. You can also see
the Jitter Average value for each Source/Destination/Application.

Packet Loss :-

The graph for packets loss shows the
top 3 IP addresses with high packet loss. You can also see the packet
loss value for each Source/Destination/Application.

Apart from the above reports, NetFlow
Analyzer can generate two reports which include all the above
mentioned parameter in one single view.

All Reports:-

It displays the
source/destination/application that has sent/received maximum number
of media packets, the volume of media traffic, maximum, minimum, and
average jitter values, number of packets lost, the rate of packet
loss. Clicking on the respective source/destination/application will
open the detailed reports page that lists the traffic details of the
source/destination/application selected.

Detail Report:-

Clicking one single IP Address or
Application in Medianet report takes you to page where it displays
Media Volume graph is a bar-graph that details on the volume of media
traffic sent/received by a specific resource during the selected time
period. It also shows the RTT and Jitter average of the resource
selected in the given time period. The table below the graph lists
the Source, Destination, Application, Media Packets, Media Volume,
RTT, Jitter Max, Jitter Min, Jitter Average, Packet Lost, Packet Lost
Rate of the resource.

Thus NetFlow Analyzer as a Bandwidth
Reporting and Media Performance monitoring tool provides very useful
insights into the performance of your network that consists of an
ever-growing category of video traffic.
