CA Spectrum QoS Manager facilitates IP fault and performance management of networks that are configured for Quality of Service. QoS is deployed in IP data networks that carry traffic from services such as Voice Over IP (VoIP), order processing, and video conferences. QoS on routers lets the infrastructure serve the unique performance requirements of each service.
The QoS Manager performs the following tasks:
- Provides visibility into the health and performance of QoS traffic classes across the network.
- Automatically discovers QoS classes and policies on your network and maps them to the associated physical routers and interfaces.
- Creates models to represent each QoS policy, QoS traffic class, and QoS behavior.
- Creates traffic-class collections so you can view all identical traffic class models implemented on devices across the landscape.
QoS Manager also lets you drill down to per-class statistics such as packet drops, queue size, and pre-policy rates. You can view the individual performance statistics based on the QoS configuration type.
This section explains how to configure, discover, and manage the QoS elements in your network using CA Spectrum.
Only Cisco devices that feature CISCO-CLASS-BASED-QOS MIB are supported.
Access the QoS Manager Interface
You can access the QoS Manager interface through the OneClick Console.
Follow these steps:
- Launch the OneClick console from the OneClick homepage.
- Expand the appropriate landscape in the Explorer tab and select QoS Manager.The QoS Manager interface appears.
The following model types are available in the hierarchical view of the QoS Manager interface:
Identifies the specific QoS Manager installation for a CA Spectrum landscape. Use this model type to configure alarm thresholds, launch QoS Discovery, and enable performance and report functionality.
Note:You need administrator privileges to use these configuration options.
Defines the QoS policies that are set on your network. You can view general information, associated devices, and associated traffic classes of these models.
Lets you view all identical traffic class models across devices on your network. You can view general information, associated devices, and associated traffic classes of these models.
Identifies the traffic classes that are defined on your network. You can view general information, associated devices, and associated behaviors of these models.
Represents the behaviors per each hop defined on your network. There are four behavior model types: QosQueueing, QosRandomDetect, QosPolicing, and QosTrafficShaping. You can view the general information and performance statistics of these model types.
The following diagram shows the QoS Manager navigation hierarchy:
