  • Policies/SLA Paths (3.7.9 and higher only)
  • Application/SLA Paths (3.7.9 and higher only)
  • Alarms and Events
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    consumes these alarms
  • Subnets
  • Virtual ports
  • Virtual router switch (VRS)
  • Virtual services controller (VSC)
  • VRS disk
  • VSC disk
  • Zones
The plug-in collects the following metrics for all QoS queues for network uplink ports:
  • Bytes out
  • Packets out
  • Packets dropped
  • Overlimits
  • Requeues
  • Lended tokens
  • Borrowed tokens
The plug-in collects the following metrics for vPorts:
  • Packets In/Out
  • Bytes In/Out
  • Errors In/Out
  • Dropped Packets In/Out
The plug-in collects the following metrics for VRSs:
  • Average CPU utilization
  • Average memory utilization
  • System uptime availability
The plug-in collects the following metrics for VSCs:
  • Average CPU utilization
  • Average memory utilization
The plug-in collects the following metrics for VSC disks:
  • Available bytes
  • Capacity
  • Used bytes
The plug-in collects the following metrics for tunnels (3.7.9 and higher only):
  • Jitter
  • Latency
  • Packet loss
The plug-in collects the following metrics for application/SLA paths (3.7.9 and higher only)
  • Percentage of jitter SLA threshold
  • Percentage of packet loss SLA threshold
  • Percentage of latency SLA threshold
Supported Releases
Virtual Network Assurance
supports the following release:
  • Nuage 4.0.0 R3
Requirements
  • Stats collection must be enabled on the Nuage items.
