A network channel quality Monitor allows you to check the network performance between two machines.


Note: For all types of local resources monitors, you must have the Anturis private agent downloaded, installed, and running on your machine (both sender and receiver) to configure the monitor.

Adding a network channel quality monitor

In Windows:
  1. Install Anturis Agent.
  2. Install WinPcap. http://www.winpcap.org/install/default.htm
  3. Open port 8099.
  4. Run the following script: <installation_path>\Anturis >agent-config.exe -p --enable_ipsla=true .Here, <installation_path> is the agent installation path. By default, it is %ProgramFiles%\Anturis in 32-bit Windows and %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Anturis in 64-bit Windows.
  5. Restart the Anturis Agent service.

Note: If an Anturis agent is already installed, you still need to restart the Anturis Agent service after installing WinPcap.
In Linux:
  1. Install Anturis Agent.
  2. Open port 8099.
  3. Restart the anturis-agent-service service.

When both agents (on the sender and receiver machines) are installed, follow the steps below.
  1. On the Component page, click "+" Components.
  2. In the Component wizard, select Network channel quality.
  3. Select the sender and receiver.
  4. Enter a Name.
  5. If more than one monitor is needed, click +.
  6. Click Next.
  7. [Optional] Change the default value for refreshing intervals (min).
  8. Set the thresholds for receiving an error or warning if these values are exceeded.
  9. Set the packet count per test.
  10. Go to Monitor Status Change Rule and specify the number of consecutive measurements needed to change the monitor status.
  11. Click Add.

To manage your monitor, click View/Edit parameters.

Note: For best network channel quality, you must sync the NTP server on both machines. It is needed to decrease false delays between machines.
