The micro-burst monitoring feature allows you to monitor traffic to detect unexpected data bursts within a very small time window (microseconds). This allows you to detect traffic in the network that are at risk for data loss and for network congestion.
A micro-burst is detected when the buffer utilization in an egress queue rises above the configured rise-threshold (measured in bytes). The burst for the queue ends when the queue buffer utilization falls below the configured fall-threshold (measured in bytes).
The feature provides timestamp and instantaneous buffer utilization information about the various queues where micro-burst monitoring is enabled.
