Information About Report Templates

The SCA Reporter installation includes report templates that you use to generate report instances. The templates are grouped by common themes. Each report template allows you to create new report instances. Default filter values are assigned to the properties, some of which are common to all the instances in a given group. You can impose additional constraints by configuring the properties.


Note The default filters are the values that are initially applied to the properties. Before generating a report, you can reconfigure its properties. In order to reset properties to their default values, select properties and click 210399.jpg (Restore Default Value. Some mandatory properties have the default value 211096.jpg (not set); these properties must be assigned a value before a report can be generated. Optional properties may be assigned a value of 211096.jpg (not set). To view all properties, click 210402.jpg (Show Advanced Properties.


You generate a report instance by selecting a report template from the list of available groups in the Templates view.

There are two main categories of reports:

Monitoring reports—Show how network resources are used for selected services at various granularities (global, package, subscriber)

Traffic Discovery reports—Provide statistical information about network activity and help identify the characteristics of the traffic traversing the network

The property From the last number of hours/days is set to a default value in all report instances. When all three Time Boundaries properties are set, the From the last number of hours/days property is ignored. When the property Ending before date is not set, the report is bound to the current time.

Information About Monitoring Reports

Report-monitoring provides information about the distribution and consumption of network resources. This information helps you understand how the network is used at different granularities (such as for the entire link, for traffic generated by all subscribers in a specific package usage counter, or for traffic generated by a specific subscriber). These reports are critical for tuning the Service Control solution's configuration according to changing network patterns.

Monitoring reports are created from Link Usage, Package Usage, and Real-Time Subscriber Usage Raw Data Records (RDRs). These RDRs (that are generated by the SCE platform) provide periodic usage information (at the various granularities) that is processed according to the selected report template to provide the final report.

Monitoring reports typically show a specific metric for a set of service usage counters at a selected granularity, such as bandwidth for P2P and Browsing service usage counters at a link granularity, or volume for the Streaming service usage counter for subscribers in the Gold package usage counter.

You select the service usage counters on which to report via the SCA Reporter. The available service usage counters are those defined in the service configuration of the SCE platform from which the reports are generated.

Granularity

Using Metrics

Granularity

A report instance's granularity controls which traffic the generated report addresses. Three granularities are supported:

Global—Provides visibility into all traffic processed by the SCE platforms being reported on. Use global granularity to view the global distribution of network resources (for example, total P2P bandwidth for the last 24 hours).

Package—Reports on traffic mapped to subscribers in a specific package usage counter. Use package granularity to monitor how subscribers assigned to a specific package usage counter (for example, the total volume of streaming traffic for all subscribers assigned to the Gold package usage counter in the last ten days) use network resources. See the "Using the Service Configuration Editor: Traffic Control" chapter of Cisco Service Control Application for Broadband User Guide for a description of how to define different packages in the system.

To generate package usage counter reports, subscribers must be defined (in any of the subscriber modes) and assigned to a specific package. See "Using the Subscriber Manager GUI Tool" chapter of Cisco Service Control Application for Broadband User Guide for a description of how to manage subscribers.

Subscriber—Provides insight into the activity of a single subscriber defined in the Service Control solution. Use subscriber granularity to view how a specific subscriber is using network resources (for example, the number of P2P sessions generated by a specific subscriber for each hour during the last 12 hours). Subscriber reports are available for those subscribers flagged for real-time reporting. (For a description of managing real-time subscriber reporting, see "Using the Service Configuration Editor: Traffic Accounting and Reporting" chapter of Cisco Service Control Application for Broadband User Guide.)

Each report template generates reports in a specific granularity. Each type of report is accessible from the corresponding report template group:

Global report templates are accessible from the Global Monitoring Template Group.

Package report templates are accessible from the Package Monitoring Template Group.

Subscriber report templates are accessible from the Subscriber Monitoring Template Group.

Using Metrics

A metric is the statistic being reported on. The following metrics are available:

Bandwidth—The total bandwidth consumed by the selected services. By default, a bandwidth report is displayed as a stacked-area chart, where each area indicates the bandwidth used by a specific service.

When generating a bandwidth report, you can select the direction: upstream, downstream, or both.

You can also display an hourly average of bandwidth. This is recommended when you are generating a report for many hours. In this case a single data point per hour is usually sufficient: it reduces the quantity of data displayed, improving performance and the visualization of the data.

Volume—The total volume (in kilobytes or megabytes) for a specific period of time, for the selected service usage counters. As opposed to the bandwidth metric, which provides normalized volume over time, volume reports give the total volume consumed, grouped by specific time durations. By default, a volume report is displayed as a stacked-bar chart, where each bar/series indicates the volume of a specific service usage counter.

Volume reports give the accumulated usage either for specific durations of time (hours or days), or for the entire duration of the report. For example: a Global Hourly Usage Volume report displays a bar that accounts for the total volume consumed by each service usage counter during each hour of the selected time frame, and a Global Aggregated Usage Volume per Service report accounts for all volume of each service usage counter for the entire time frame of the report.

Sessions—The number of sessions. A session is a single network transaction (for example, RTSP stream or P2P file download). By default, a sessions report is displayed as a stacked-bar chart, where each bar/series indicates the total number of sessions of a specific service usage counter.

Like volume reports, sessions reports can be grouped into specific durations (hours or days), in order to account for the total number of sessions in a specific hour/day consumed by a specific service usage counter.


Note Volume and bandwidth are reported in layer 3.


Information About Traffic Discovery Reports

Traffic discovery reports provide raw statistics for analyzing network activities. They are useful for obtaining information on the general activity in the IP network, and they are the key for defining the system's service configuration.

Traffic discovery reports are based on the information in Transaction RDRs.

Traffic Discovery reports generate histograms and distribution charts that are grouped by a selected criterion and sorted by the selected order parameter. For example, a Top Protocols report is sorted by Total Volume, and a Top Web-hosts report is sorted by Hit-Count.

Criteria for Reporting

Order Property

Criteria for Reporting

Each report template focuses on a specific criterion based on Layers 3 to 7, such as:

Top Servers IP addresses

Top Server Port numbers

Top HTTP web-hosts

Top NNTP news-groups

Order Property

The Metric to order property indicates the value by which the report will be sorted. Possible values are:

Upstream Volume

Downstream Volume

Both Directions Volume—Total upstream and downstream volume

Hit-Count—Number of transactions

You can limit each report to a specific number of results, which allows you to focus on the top areas of activity (according to the selected value).
