VeloCloud. Low-quality score measured over MPLS transport.

This post was originally published on this site

Hello Experts.

 

This is PoC in a production environment.

 

In the normal scenario without sdwan there are two MPLS lactive/passive, so the MPLS-2 is used only when the MPLS-1 fails.

 

Now with sdwan both MPLS transports are enabled to forward traffic simultaneously.
I realized that VeloCloud is measuring a lot of “packet loss” on the MPLS-2. (Latency and Jitter are very similar than MPLS-1).

 

I would like to submit a support ticket with the MPLS provider but, how can I make sure than the VeloCloud measure is accurate?

 

I’ve performed some ping tests from MPLS-2 router on the branch office to the MPLS-2 router on the DC while VeloCloud is measuring packet loss, but the ping test is successful, 0% packet lost.

 

Any suggestions about other tests could I perform?
do you guys have seen something similar?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Regards.
