Network Usage Report

The Network Usage page displays historical usage data about the video network. You can export the network usage data as a CSV (comma-separated values) file.

Use the search feature to select the network usage criteria to include in the report:

Start time and span/granularity data

Cluster, territory, or throttlepoint (site, site link, or subnet) data

Specific call, QoS, and bandwidth data

The data matching the criteria you choose displays as a graph.

Export Network Usage Data

You can download a comma-separated values (CSV) file that contains all the network usage data point records for the time period you specify.

A network usage data report contains records only for a single cluster (one or two RealPresence DMA systems) or a High Availability pair, not for all superclustered systems.

The system retains the most recent 8 million data points.

To export network usage data:

1 Go to Monitoring > Network Usage.

2 Enter the following search criteria as needed:

Ø Time granularities

Ø Start time

Ø Type

Ø Value

3 Click Search to display specific call, QoS, and bandwidth data you want to see.

4 Click Export Network Usage.

5 Set the Export Time Frame Start Date and time and the Export Time Frame End Date and time you want to include.

The default values provide all network usage data for the past 24 hours.

6 Click OK.

7 Choose a path and filename for the network usage file and click Save.

8 When the download is complete, click Close.

You can open the CSV file with Microsoft Excel or another spreadsheet application.

View Network Usage Data

When you export network usage data, the file includes a network usage data point record for each throttlepoint, territory, and cluster for each minute of the time period you specified for the report. It does not include usage data for MPLS clouds, the default Internet site, or sites not controlled by the system.

The following table describes the fields in the records.

Field

Description

name
Name of the throttlepoint, territory, or cluster that defines the scope being measured.
date
Minutes since 1970 (Java time / 60,000).
calls_started
Number of calls started in the scope during the time interval.
calls_ended
Number of calls ended in the scope during the time interval.
calls_dropped
Number of calls rejected or evicted due to bandwidth limits at the throttlepoint during the time interval. The calls dropped measure is intended to help with understanding network congestion. So, it includes calls dropped due to available bandwidth at the throttlepoint, but not calls dropped due to per call bitrate limits at the throttlepoint.
calls_downspeeded
Number of calls downspeeded due to bandwidth limits at the throttlepoint during the time interval. The calls downspeeded measure is intended to help with understanding network congestion. So, it includes calls downspeeded due to available bandwidth at the throttlepoint, but not calls downspeeded due to per call bitrate limits at the throttlepoint.
bitrate_limit
The (maximum) configured bitrate limit for the scope during the time interval, or -1 if no limit was configured (kbps).
bandwidth_limit
The (maximum) configured bandwidth limit for the scope during the time interval, or -1 if no limit was configured (kbps).
bandwidth_usage
The (maximum) used bandwidth for the scope during the time interval (kbps).
bandwidth_usage_percent
The (maximum) percentage of the bandwidth limit used for the scope during the time interval (kbps).
packet_loss_percent
Mean packet loss percentage of all QoS reports in the scope during the time interval.
avg_video_jitter
Mean jitter of all QoS reports of all video channels in the scope during the time interval (milliseconds).
max_video_jitter
Maximum jitter of all QoS reports of all video channels in the scope during the time interval (milliseconds).
avg_video_delay
Mean delay of all QoS reports of all video channels in the scope during the time interval (milliseconds).
max_video_delay
Maximum delay of all QoS reports of all video channels in the scope during the time interval (milliseconds).
avg_audio_jitter
Mean jitter of all QoS reports of all audio channels in the scope during the time interval (milliseconds).
max_audio_jitter
Maximum jitter of all QoS reports of all audio channels in the scope during the time interval (milliseconds).
avg_audio_delay
Mean delay of all QoS reports of all audio channels in the scope during the time interval (milliseconds).
max_audio_delay
Maximum delay of all QoS reports of all audio channels in the scope during the time interval (milliseconds).
gold_calls
Max concurrent Gold class calls in the scope during the time interval.
silver_calls
Max concurrent Silver class calls in the scope during the time interval.
bronze_calls
Max concurrent Bronze class calls in the scope during the time interval.
audio_calls
Max concurrent audio calls in the scope during the time interval.
calls_256Kbps
Max concurrent video calls with a bitrate less than or equal to 320kbps in the scope during the time interval.
calls_384Kbps
Max concurrent video calls with a bit rate greater than 320kbps and less than or equal to 448kbps in the scope during the time interval.
calls_512Kbps
Max concurrent video calls with a bit rate greater than 448kbps and less than or equal to 640kbps in the scope during the time interval.
calls_768Kbps
Max concurrent video calls with a bit rate greater than 640kbps and less than or equal to 896kbps in the scope during the time interval.
calls_1Mbps
Max concurrent video calls with a bit rate greater than 896kbps and less than or equal to 1.5Mbps in the scope during the time interval.
calls_2Mbps
Max concurrent video calls with a bit rate greater than 1.5Mbps and less than or equal to 3Mbps in the scope during the time interval.
calls_4Mbps
Max concurrent video calls with a bit rate greater than 3Mbps in the scope during the time interval.
sip_calls
Max concurrent calls using SIP signaling in the scope during the time interval.
h323_calls
Max concurrent calls using H.323 signaling in the scope during the time interval.
gateway_calls
Max concurrent calls using the SIP to H.323 gateway in the scope during the time interval.
conference_calls
Max concurrent conference manager calls in the scope during the time interval.
