  7. 7. Measurement strategies 7
  8. 8. QoE of business applications Intranet/Cloud/Mobility Key challenges • All types of Intranet & Cloud-based applications • on every platform (PC / Mobile) and OSes • Deployment of Measurement Agents • Dedicated (AsA): tests on PC/VM/Box • Embedded (AsA-e): tests run in foreground on PC • WEB or GUI engine (dedicated agent only) • Alaloop Web site (e-Bench) as a reference point • QoE of the Internet Access for Cloud applications • QoE of the proxy infrastructure on the Cloud 8 Levels References Robots Examples BASIC QoE-BAS-PERF WEB Load of a web page STANDARD QoE-STD-PERF WEB Login / Logout script ADVANCED QoE-ADV-PERF WEB Scripted scenario: Web application OPTIMIZED QoE-OPT-PERF GUI Scripted scenario: Complex Web / Thick Client / Citrix / TSE
  9. 9. QoE of business applications Intranet/Cloud/Mobility Key challenges • All types of applications on the Cloud or Intranet • Private or public connexions (Wi-Fi, 3G-4G) via the Alaloop « Relay » service • AsA-e Agent (embedded) for all types of mobiles • Windows CE, Android, iOS, ... • Dedicated mobile or mobile of users • Tests in foreground / background • Web-e or GUI Robot (dedicated mobile connected to the AsA agent) 9 Levels References Robots Examples BASIC MOB-BAS-PERF WEB-e Load of a web page STANDARD MOB-STD-PERF WEB-e Login / Logout script ADVANCED MOB-ADV-PERF WEB-e Scripted scenario: Web application (dedicated mobile recommended) OPTIMIZED MOB-OPT-PERF GUI Scripted scenario: thick Client (dedicated mobile / AsA connexion)
  10. 10. QoE of business applications Implementation & options • QoE scripts development (WEB and GUI Robots) • Done by ALALOOP on demand (via OPEN Tickets) • Monitoring of the scripts done by the CSC • Display Mode (optional) • STEP-UI : A measure for each step of the script • Advanced management of each step (threshold, alerts, …) • Step comparison on measurement points … • STEP-HTML : Waterfall display of the WEB script for each page load • Facilitate the debugging of web applications • Indirect measure correlated with active measure • Performance KPI • Mean duration to access the application from multiple measurement points 10 Levels References Examples OPT STEP-UI 1 measure for each step of the GUI script ADV/OPT STEP-HTML 1 measure for each step with Waterfall Tout test QoE KPI Aggregation (mean values) of the QoE tests
  11. 11. QoS of Servers / Applications • Performance: 4 levels of tests • Basic: Availability of the application services • Standard: Application query (HTTP, DNS, SIP, …) • Advanced: Scripted test based on application queries (SQL script, SIP script, ...) • Optimized: Test of Web Services • Workload • Server: • BASIC : Server Monitoring • STANDARD : Process Monitoring • Other Infrastructure Components: • Standard MIB Query • Advanced MIB Query • “WEB Services” Query 11 Levels References Examples BASIC APP-BAS-PERF APP-BAS-LOAD Availability of non-critical applications CPU/RAM/Disk/Interface STANDARD APP-STD-PERF APP-STD-LOAD Technical Transactions: URL test, SIP query, … Standard MIB Query ADVANCED APP-QoS-PERF APP-ADV-LOAD Scripted scenarios with advanced technical transactions Advanced MIB Query OPTIMIZED APP-OPT-PERF APP-OPT-LOAD Application test via Web Services Query based on Web Services
  12. 12. QoS of WAN & MAN Networks Key challenges • Any type of networks managed by operators • Ranging from VPN-IPSec to MPLS/CoS • Network delay from the DCs (application) • Shadow router used for measurement in the DC • No installation required on site • Activation “IPSLA responder” on target sites • Adaptability towards the Cloud and Mobiles • Hybrid Connexions (MPLS + Internet) 12 Levels References Examples BASIC NET-BAS-PERF NET-BAS-LOAD ICMP test on the WAN for small sites (SOHO) Bandwidth + Interface Errors STANDARD NET-STD-PERF NET-STD-LOAD IPSLA test on the WAN for sites ranging from low to medium criticality Same as NET-BAS-LOAD + CPU/RAM router ADVANCED NET-ADV-PERF NET-ADV-LOAD IPSLA test on the WAN for critical sites (CoS Data + Real Time) Same as NET-STD-LOAD + CoS Statistics OPTIMIZED NET-OPT-xx CoS + WAN Acceleration Web Service Query Spécifique Composite Hybrid ICMP test on the WAN for small sites (SOHO) Bandwidth + Interface Errors
  13. 13. QoS of WiFi & LAN Networks and Data Centers Key challenges • Any type of LANs • Critical links between switches, health status, … • WiFi Infrastructures (Cisco) • Access Point (AP), Controllers WLC/Flex, SSID, … • Infrastructure Devices on DCs • Load Balancer, Firewall, Proxy, … • Integration on demand 13 Levels References Examples BASIC NET-BAS-PERF NET-BAS-LOAD Availability test on LAN devices / Infrastructure Bandwidth + Interface Errors (24) STANDARD NET-STD-LOAD Query on device (standard MIB) ADVANCED NET-ADV-LOAD Query on device (advanced MIB) OPTIMIZED NET-OPT-LOAD Query on device (Web Service) Wi-Fi NET-WiFi-PERF NET-WiFi-LOAD Monitoring of WiFi (Cisco) controllers Up & running status / Statistics by AP, controller, groups, SSID
  14. 14. Network et Application Traffic Monitoring Key challenges • No installation required • Software Activation / Simulator • Probes adapted to different usages • TOP REPORTS (APPLICATIONS, TALKERS, SITES…) • traffic engineering • CUSTOM REPORTS • Filters on traffic as to follow critical applications 14 Levels References Examples Light PROBE-LIGHT Noncritical remote sites (SOHO) Physical PROBE-x Critical site (x = Network throughput) Logical PROBE-x-L Strategic site (2 routers of 1 DC) Custom PROBE-x-C Custom probe (per BU)
