Guidelines and Limitations for IP SLAs UDP Jitter Operations for VoIP
This feature uses UDP traffic to generate approximate Voice over IP scores. It does not provide support for the Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP).
The Calculated Planning Impairment Factor (ICPIF) and MOS values provided by this feature, while consistent within IP SLAs, are estimates only and are intended only for relative comparisons. The values may not match values that are determined using other methods.
Predictions of customer opinion (such as those listed for the E-Model transmission rating factor R and derived Mean Opinion Scores) that are determined by any method are intended only for transmission planning and analysis purposes and should not be interpreted as reflecting actual customer opinions.
Configuring CoPP for IP SLA Packets
When using IP SLA operations on a large scale, a specific CoPP configuration to allow the IP SLA packets to pass through might be needed. Since IP SLA uses user defined UDP ports, there is no way to allow all IP SLA packets to the control plane. However, you can specify each destination/source port that IP SLA can use.
For more information about the verified scalability of the number of IP SLA probes, see the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series NX-OS Verified Scalability Guide.
The following shows an example of a CoPP configuration that allows IP SLA packets to pass through. It assumes destination ports and source ports in the range of 6500-7000.
