Multioperation Scheduler

The IP SLAs Multioperation Scheduler feature provides a highly scalable infrastructure for Cisco IOS IP SLAs by allowing you to schedule multiple IP SLAs operations using a single command.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipsla/configuration/guide/sla_multi_scheduler.html

One Way Measurement

Cisco IOS IP SLAs uses active traffic monitoring—the generation of traffic in a continuous, reliable, and predictable manner—for measuring network performance.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipsla/configuration/guide/sla_overview.html

Path Jitter Operation

The Cisco IOS IP SLAs Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) path jitter operation allows you to measure hop-by-hop jitter (inter-packet delay variance).

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipsla/configuration/guide/sla_icmp_pathjitter.html

Reaction Threshold Monitoring

Cisco IOS IP SLAs proactive threshold monitoring capability allows you to configure an IP SLAs operation to react to certain measured network conditions.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipsla/configuration/guide/sla_threshold_mon.html

Scheduler

Cisco IP SLAs supports a variety of scheduling options, such as scheduling a single Cisco IOS IP SLAs operation or a group of operations at one time.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipsla/configuration/guide/sla_overview.html

SNMP Support

Cisco IOS IP SLAs can send SNMP traps that are triggered by specified events.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipsla/configuration/guide/sla_overview.html

TCP Connect Operation

The Cisco IOS IP SLAs Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) connect operation allows you to measure the network response time taken to perform a TCP Connect operation between a Cisco device and other devices using IP.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipsla/configuration/guide/sla_tcp.html

Cisco IOS XE 3.0.1SG

UDP Echo Operation

The Cisco IOS IP SLAs User Datagram Protocol (UDP) echo operation allows you to measure end-to-end network response time between a Cisco device and other devices using IP

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipsla/configuration/guide/sla_udp_echo.html

UDP Jitter Operation

The Cisco IOS IP SLAs User Datagram Protocol (UDP) jitter operation allows you to measure round-trip delay, one-way delay, one-way jitter, one-way packet loss, and connectivity in networks that carry UDP traffic.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipsla/configuration/guide/sla_udp_jitter.html

Random Scheduler

The IP SLAs Random Scheduler feature provides the capability to schedule multiple IP SLAs operations to begin at random intervals uniformly distributed over a specified duration of time and to restart at uniformly distributed random frequencies within a specified frequency range.
