IP SLA feature

Hello,

As far as I know there is no such thing in brocade switches....I need that feature because a customer in the Data Center has a Call Manager installed, and we need to measure the performance inside the LAN, from their connection up to the gateway to the MPLS network.

Can sFlow or Network Advisor can do that?

Regards,

Ernesto

Ernesto,

Im not completely familiar with Cisco's IP-SLA feature. You are correct in that Brocade does not support IP-SLA

as that is a Cisco feature. Brocade alternatives that may provide similar functionality are  Y.1731, sFlow and 802.1ag.

I would recommend reviewing the (OAM) Operations, Administration, and Maintenance

section of the MLX Configuration Guide. See link below:
