In continuation to the last blog on “Repeater link Stat counter group” (/blogs/2011/12/16/cc-5-0-enhancementsrepeater-link-stats-quick-reportsnew-part2/), this blog will cover up the third new quick report on QoS stats counter group.

Part 3-Repeater QoS Stats Counter Group

QoS is a set of policies and priorities assigned to the application traffic prioritized under traffic shaping policies in BR devices. This QoS Stats counter group, uniquely identifies a QoS traffic class in the listed QoS traffic class statistics table. QoS has different classes to segment traffic based on priorities. For instance, traffic with priority 256 will get twice the bandwidth in comparison to traffic with priority 128 when traffic is flowing at the max bandwidth.

Lets deep dive into the range of counters supported by this counter group.

COUNTERS:

  • QOS sent volume (bits-per-sec)
    • The total volume of QoS marked traffic sent on the link, measured in 1000-octets. Where an octet is equivalent to 8 bits.
  • QOS receive volume(bits-per-sec)
    • The total volume of QoS marked traffic received on the link, measured in 1000-octets.
  • QOS sent packets
    • The total number of QoS marked packets sent on all the links.
  • QOS received packets
    • The total number of QoS marked packets received on all the links.
  • QOS dropped sent volume (bits-per-sec)
    • The total volume of sent QoS marked traffic dropped from the link due to QoS threshold, in 1000-octets.
  • QOS dropped receive volume (bits-per-sec)
    • The total volume of received QoS marked traffic dropped from the link due to QoS threshold, in 1000-octets.
  • QOS dropped sent packets
    • The total number of sent QoS marked packets not sent on the link due to QoS threshold.
  • QOS dropped received packets
    • The total number of received QoS marked packets dropped from the link due to QoS threshold.

This is a snapshot of the graph on QoS sent and received traffic volumes in bits per second.

With this we end the third part of the new Branch Repeater quick reports blogs. Next set of blogs will take up on new branch repeater custom reports introduced in NetScaler Command Center 5.0 release.
